Is there such thing as a wholly non-corrupt government, or do they all manipulate people with propaganda? Do you think it would be possible to truly have a government "of and for the people" - or is corruption completely unavoidable? (no debates or hate please) Philosophically speaking - can we make a government that is non-corrupt, can it exist? and if so, how? or is it truly not possible?

Very true, like two wolves and a sheep voting on what’s for lunch. I think we are actually on the last step - and it’s good because it means we are at the turning point. This time there are far more people aware, so we don’t have to go down as far.
A Little--You have much more faith in the American people than do I and I hope that you right. At this point there is two of us.
There's more than two. Check out some of the links under “Solution Groups” in my hub about the Federal Reserve. As one example, Oath Keepers has large numbers of rank and file military who refuse to obey orders that go against the American people.
true, but if people believe the propaganda - how do they deserve it? What can they do to stop it if anything? I agree that there doesn't seem to be a wholly non-corrupt govt. Some are def. worse than others!
If the believe it, then they are feeding into the hate. Politicians take extremes so for someone to agree, means they are of the same slant. In the US particularly where you have to have a whole set of beliefs one side or the other.
why or why not?
In Democracy you will find that parties take money from industrialist to win election in return that govt gives them public resources at cost of penny or price hike is imposed on people to pay back those industrialist people.
very good points you make.
Thank you ,ChristinS
buddha-Are you saying that corruption only exists in a capitalistic society and that a theocracy or other totalitarian systems, as socialism would not have such corruption?
Yes, completely agree. Human factor and greed.
Even communism is harmful cos there is same govt for long which is prone to corruption.
Thank you buddhaanalysis.
I agree, especially with term limits. The longer they are "dug in" the worse their potential for corruption and the harder it is to get them back out.
Thank you Christin.
