Is corruption a universal human trait or does it only affect some people?

Corruption depends on a person's conscience.
Also one needs to have a extremely strong moral compass, to be free from any or all corruption.

I do believe it is possible with some people, I have met some who would find it impossible to do something 'corrupt''.

The old saying 'Everyone has their price', is very true.

Also you have to remember 'justification' for doing something always comes into play.

People are very good at that, and in a lot of cases will steer to doing something wrong.

I just Thank God.... not all people, do fall under it's spell.

I think some people are more prone to corruption and it is often those people who seek positions or careers where they can feather their own nest. Although I'm not sure the people even register that they are corrupt and truly believe they have worked hard and deserve the privileges they award themselves. Maybe this is the reason communism often doesn't work as well as it should..

Yes. But we each have to be guided by our conscience and principles not to succumb to such temptation.

It seems the more money some people earn, the more they want, so corruption is an 'easy' way to get more $$$$.

Doesn't interest me in the slightest. Never has. Never will. Never going to allow myself to be in a position to be corrupted, in ANY way!
I fully agree, plus for me I find you really enjoy life, when you do get the little things you work for...and not have it so easy, you can buy what you want.

Yes, jonaj, my Parents' taught me many things, as they're wont to do, but one thing has always stuck in my mind, AND has always worked for me.

That is, eg buying white goods....buy the biggest, & best you can possibly afford. That way, you've got 'bargaining power' if something goes wrong, at a minimum. And if all goes well, you've got an appliance that lasts for a long time, PROVIDED it's well looked after whilst you have it. This applies to practically any item. My car's 36 years' old, & still going. Just had his 'check-up' for 270,000klms! A fully imported Datsun, back in the day.
I've bought only Simpson, Westinghouse, & Sunbeam products. I've never had major problems with any of them. I'm only onto my 4th Washing Machine in 40 years' & two kids'. Lol!
Am spoilt, & have an Elna Press; it's just had its' 41st Birthday! What a hoot!
Cheers to you!

No, corruption is not a universal trait nor does it affect all people.

I could never be corrupt as I am too honest -which did not serve me well in my divorce!

Oh! Finy, your Lawyer should've done the 'fighting' for you to gain the maximum benefit, legally able.

Most people are corrupt, i saw it in my family happen under my nose, my mechanic turned out to be corrupt. I think we can say when money is involved we are all guilty. Thanking you
I am basically too honest a person but I also think there are degrees of "corruption" and the minor ones don't really matter, small gains can keep you happy and we all like to feel happy. However on a large scale and connected with power is another story and unfortunately too many people are in that category!
