Corrupted systems have been a typical issue in every country. No matter what country we live in, there will always be corrupt systems everywhere. Whether it is in the law, biased treatment from superiors to the employees, the misuse of authorities, police taking bribes, and so much more. Even people working in architecture like a flat roofer or constructors face corruption. You never know what kind of people are victims or involved in corruption these days. It could be the person running your country too.
Although all countries have laws and people who have the power to take charges, it is not as simple as that. Taking actions in charging someone for doing something against the laws requires solid proof and judges to determine whether that person is truly guilty or not. Especially when it comes to the corrupt system of politicians, it is nothing uncommon to the people knowing their politicians who are currently holding the power in their countries are corrupted. Although certain countries, like Malaysia, would have democratic elections based on fair votes, once the political party won and took over, there are still certain people in the political party who practices corrupted systems and taking bribes. I have families who live in Singapore, their houses are located really near to Canninghill Square City Developments Limited, they constantly complain of the government corruption issues or all about the government, every time our families are enjoying the Eid season. Not to mention, how they could easily not be charged guilty for breaking certain laws.
But we are not here to talk about those people who practice a corrupted system. We are here to talk about how the government could fix the corrupted system. The first thing I would say is by taking action and being firm with those who take the law lightly. Why? The citizens are very observant, and the reason why people chose you to lead the country is because of your credibility and potentials of giving the best for the people and the country. Therefore, when the people are able to see how the government could let people in their political party escape the laws that are being forced on the people, it is obviously unfair. By taking action and seeing that they are being charged for breaking the laws just like other citizens, it is much easier to slowly control the corruption in the systems.
The second thing the government could do about the corrupted system is by checking transactions and purchases made by their fellow politicians. A lot of transactions or purchases made with big amounts without any valid reasons are very suspicious especially when it is used as a gift to other people, for instance, it is bought for another politician or someone with authority. That can be considered as bribes, and bribes show corrupted systems’ characteristics. It is important for companies and banks to keep the usage histories of the bank holder. Therefore, you use this as a background check and use it as proof to take charge of the guilty person.
Last but also as important is by practising good behaviours as a reliable leader. With becoming a good person, the leader has to basically teach themself to be disciplined and live with good principles. Once they have managed to have full control of themselves, they have the power to control others, especially with the legitimate authorities they have. Not to mention, if they are actually people who practice good values, their other fellow politicians could easily change by following the lead of a good and trustworthy person.
In a word, the government has the most power, and authorities to change, fix and take actions on the systems, especially the law. The citizens of a country depend on the leaders and that is why they vote for certain leaders, because the protection, assurance, the firmness in behaviours make the reliability of the government grow bigger. They trust you enough to hand you over the power so everyone in the country could live in a peaceful environment with healthier leaders. It is as simple as this when the leader shows the power they have in breaking the rules, the people can easily use this as an excuse to not follow the rules as well. Over time, it becomes a habit that people normalize and is seen by younger generations. These people are going to be the next leaders, that is why it is very crucial to be the bigger person.
