Critical Analysis of CorruptionNameClassDateProfessorCritical Analysis of Corruption Corruption is dishonest or destructive behavior resulting in the abuse of power or to allow an immoral person benefit illegally or immorally. Corruption comes in many different forms and can destroy the trust of society when committed by a public official. In American society corruption is when a public official's acts in a way that is considered morally wrong based on the position of power they hold in the government. In other countries or cultures corruption is not considered wrong or illegal but involves traditional aspects of gift giving to members in positions of power or authority. When asking the question of whether or not corruption is a Western concept and is not applicable to traditional societies, where corruption does not have such a negative meaning these answer is no. In societies were gift giving is a traditional aspect of society then this behavior would not be considered corruptive. Corruptive behavior destroys but behaviors that are accepted in society, whether they delay development or not, are not corruptive if it does not harm society or go against societal norms. An act is not corruptive if the act is transparent and the gift is not given in order to persuade another individual to engage in immoral or dishonest acts. While the social structure and political traditions of many countries are based on the beneficial exchange of reward
