I was just thinking about making a post about this. All this talk about taxing the rich ( I agree everyone should pay their fair share of taxes ) but it is equally important what the government does with all that money. And this is exactly how these corrupt politicians destroy society. Life could be better for everyone, people won’t be homeless And go hungry if these greedy bastards did the right thing.

As Milton Friedman said: "I do not believe that the solution to our problem is simply to elect the right people. The important thing is to establish a political climate of opinion which will make it politically profitable for the wrong people to do the right thing. Unless it is politically profitable for the wrong people to do the right thing, the right people will not do the right thing either, or it they try, they will shortly be out of office."

Corruption may seem like people did it out of greed, but it's not just greed but the calculus of power demands that your supporter and companions must cooperate with each other in order to maintain power. Therefore, the best way to ensure everyone else is supporting one another is by paying them all rewards to ensure loyalty. Why give money to the people? They're weak, disorganized, and wield little influence. Pay the right people with the right influence, and you stay in power, hence Corruption. Even if you're a paragon of goodness and want to change the world for the better, you're all subject to the laws of power once you're in position. Act upon the throne, and the throne acts upon you. Power corrupts.
