    Great paper! Especially the question time responses. I wish you had more time to elaborate. But I wonder: if democracy does not facilitate the end of corruption, obviously because of the rule of law, what form of governance can facilitate it?

    I ask this question because in my humble opinion and, from my limited experience, it is not the system of government that facilitates corruption. Rather, it is the greedy operators of the system of government that do, what ever form of government they operate. All forms of governance are intrinsically good if operated with strict morals. Conversely any system can be corrupt if operated by individuals with greedy intent.

    I especially like your comments about people who have already stolen millions wanting to steal billions. That is “unnecessary thieving” – ORE OBE OSHELE – if you know what I mean.
