Corruption is here in the world to stay and entrench itself deeper. That is our most significant contemporary reality in times of peace and not in an emergency. It is even legal. Corruption has paved the way for unnecessary wars, unrest, pestilence and systemic failures; many commentators brand such as unexpected contingencies. “Things happen”, we are persuaded, as if they occur without much-calculated assistance. Without entrenched predatory corruption, there would be much fewer preventable disasters and crises in the world. The Covid-19 pandemic has inadvertently exposed more crime than is usually seen by the average person. The backing ideologies and consequences of corruption have become more visible. The entire media, justice system and civil services could never offer the people such a view in bribery.
