I'm fairly certain it is not (and I'm fairly certain Science related to the development of the brain in childhood backs me up on this). A sense of conscience is something nurtured into children in early childhood, and sense of integrity (even in the face of one's own insecurities) is as well.
The world has a long way to go before all parents are sufficiently skilled at nurturing to the point where corruption becomes far more of a rarity than it is now, or has been in the past.
In the meantime, however, there are lots of people who would never be "corruptible" or resort to corrupt behavior. That, alone, essentially proves that corruption isn't in all people's "genes".
Corruption is not what drives the world nor has corruption done so for a long time. Nice little piece of distortion you are spreading or attempting. Oh, so man must be genetically predisposed to corruption? Oh please, give me a break.
Like Cagsil, I too think that your choice of "drives" is too strong. Corruption does not drive the world (and by "world" I assume you mean the human one).
However, I think the point you are trying to make is that corruption seems an inescapable part of the human condition. In that I think you are correct. Many great philosophers and theologians (some who became central figures in major religions) have described the struggle between our base nature and our ideals. Almost the entire body of art and literature has been dedicated to charting the struggle since.
The question of "man's inherent evil" or "original sin" or however you want to frame the conversation, ultimately becomes one of "which came first, the chicken or the egg." All we can do is try to focus on the ideal and discipline ourselves to act against the evolutionary leftovers of our selfish, surviving selves. Which is, I think, your point regarding our genes.
I'm not feigning ignorance. Why are you being arrogant? This post is about corruption and the other one self-destruction. They are genuine questions about humanity and all the nonsense into which it is indulging. Maybe you don't understand their importance.
