- Our society has hold an absolute dictatorship for more than 40 years under the
name of "industrial development." Under this circumstance, it is a natural phenomena
that politicans and bureaucrats become corrupt. Nevertheless, persons belong to
the intellectual class such as the area of education, religion, press, medical service,
and legal profession need to stand up and argue for the social morality in order to
maintain a sound society. However, their morality has deteriorated as well.
The prevailing corruption in the society has become quite serious problems. Due
to these social perception, one often confuses his/her decision on choice between
corruption and absolute power. In order to scrape out these deep-rooted corruption
without the violent revolution, self-examination of politicans, bureaucrats, and leaders
as well as reformation of social system ought to be practiced.
