NO SHAME, NO PANTIES

A small child asks his father: “Dad, what does the word corruption mean?”

– Bring me a beer from the fridge and I’ll tell you.

– But mom says you shouldn’t drink!

– Look in the right compartment, behind, there is an ice cream. Take it for yourself and come here with the beer.

– Oh, great! – the child runs happily.

A small child asks his father: “Dad, what does the word corruption mean?”

– Bring me a beer from the fridge and I’ll tell you.

– But mom says you shouldn’t drink!

– Look in the right compartment, behind, there is an ice cream. Take it for yourself and come here with the beer.

– Oh, great! – the child runs happily.

This is how we can show corruption in all its forms in the simplest and most plastic way, without pretending to be naive, with the face of a small child, that we still do not understand nor are we sufficiently informed about the meaning of the word?! Or what some higher instances of the diplomatic body in the country would say, that we grow and develop our corrupt culture in our homes and, by the way, from there we carry it and project it institutionally. Similar to the anecdote said above… Everything starts at home and ends… (?)… But it is not always in the people who signal, but also in the mask that one day will fall. However!

The last one from the country – with corruption evidence! “A company that produced underwear and that never carried out supervision, received 8.3 million euros, from the 22.3 million tender for highways”, this very title and news brought back my concerns, changed the color of my face and did not I know for the seventh time it made me have symptoms of vomiting… An information and an event that we all do not know for the seventh time to absorb as if nothing had happened, or to forget it for two days, it seems that we have experienced totally jamais vu, like the opposite of déjà vu – already seen, or when you meet the same people or visit the same places, again and again, but each time is a first. Everyone is always a stranger. Nothing is ever known. And experience tells us that when it comes to corruption, we always behave like this…

Further reading the news about the deal, the companies participating in the tender, as well as the main actors and fake fans, this information would be expertly presented in a prestigious medical journal with an impact factor: “News and components produced in a decomposition . the body emits various odors. Although not all compounds produce odors, some compounds have distinct odors, including: cadaverine and putrescine, which smell like rotting flesh, while scotch has a strong fecal odor.” Explained with a professional dictionary…

Actors in the state should be clear that citizens are losing faith in political leaders and in social systems, public institutions and sometimes even in society itself with all its ethics, when they think that corruption is widespread and that corrupt actors are not responsible for their actions, while seriously eroding the trust of public opinion in the government.

In this case, with the “supervisory firm” there is no question of whether or not there is corruption… If the process is clean, with all the documentation and its deadlines, the very background or profile of the firms and companies that apply for the tenders, this speaks volumes about the fact whether the selection will have or not a “corrupt background” and what perception it will cause in the public. So the question inevitably arises, how is it possible to allow a company that produced underwear to oversee the construction of highways? No shame, no panties! It is illusory to go into details… Absurd! Or what Kafka would say: The first sign of beginning to understand things is the desire to die! Yes! That’s the feeling.

Do we think about the consequences of all this that is served to us every day and frustrates us more and more, increasing the feeling that corruption is spread in all the pores of our society and leaves room for the citizens themselves to participate in future corrupt transactions without a sense of guilt and responsibility?!

“If everyone is doing it, why shouldn’t I” is the most common response we will get in the future if we don’t end this madness that drives corrupt behavior, because the trend is just that, and the norms social norms will either apply to everyone or not apply at all.

Throughout this period of corruption scandals, proven and those to be resolved by the court, regardless of which party is in power, the legitimacy of state institutions is being deliberately destroyed… Is this exactly the ultimate goal?

The complete failure to meet the public’s expectations for a type of zero tolerance and disregard for norms will only lead to a maximum deterioration of the citizen-institution relationship, creating a completely chaotic situation that will bring the state to its knees, completely. impoverished and eroded… Or in translation, the poorer the country we live in, the more developed corruption will be! And people’s indifference is the most fertile ground for the growth of corruption.
