...FINAL PROJECT – CORRUPTION IN INDONESIA
Before we discuss about corruption in Indonesia, first we must know what corruption itself is. In a common view, corruption is misused money which causes a deficit for the country itself. But, corruption itself has a broader meaning beside that, corruption itself come from the word “corrupt” which also mean defective. A misused of power can also be a definition of corruption. Based from oxford dictionary, corrupt has a meaning of “having or showing a willingness to act dishonestly in return for money or personal gain”.
Corruption in Indonesia is already going from Ir. Soekarno era. Even though Ir. Soekarno is well known as a great leader and a great orator, he ever did a corruption which caused him to be overthrown from his era in Indonesia. Corruption which he did is proclaiming himself as a lifetime President of Indonesia. Based on the previous constitution of Indonesia, this action is defying the constitution itself where Republic of Indonesia first is proclaimed as a Republic, and by changing into having a single leader for a lifetime means that Indonesia won’t be a Republic anymore, but Indonesia become a capitalism country. Indonesia have law number UU 31/1999 and UU 8/2010 money laundering, its about the corruption and money laundering.

...Corruption in any form is treated as an incurable disease, a cause of many social and economical evils in the society and it damages the moral and ethical fibres of the civilization. Indisputably, it is correct that corruption breeds many evils in the society and once corruption starts taking place, slowly and gradually whole country passes through its net and it becomes after sometime an incurable disease. From the point of view of economic growth, there seems to be no clear cut correlation between corruption and the economic growth of a country. There may be presence of some social maladies like inequality of income among the people, moral degradation of people due to the prevalence of corruption, but the parameters of economic growth which are taken on percentage or an average basis are entirely different.
we can find several countries having corrupt regime but yielding excellent economic results and other countries with clean regime showing very poor results in terms of economic prosperity and growth.

...there is corruption in the New York police system but you know what, it’s everywhere as well. Not just New York. Blogging is a new system online now for people to put down their thoughts and feeling about things and it’s a very depressing thing to read sometimes. Every blog that I read there are some people who appreciate the topic but for the most part there are more people that hate the topic and just want to trash it. An example would be the Nashville Tennessee flooding. I read some blogs on the yahoo website and so many people on there were complaining on how the government is getting more involved and that there should be more people trying to help this city. In high site, it takes a lot more strategy and time to come up with a plan for this type of situation. The community just goes off what they read in headings and articles and that’s what throws them off into hating the system.
I use the blogging as a source because in some cases it may be useful but in other and most cases the community is responding to a topic that has happened or will happen and turn it into so many different views and opinions. This isn’t helpful for a newbie to the blog who is reading everyone else’s views to try and understand what is going on and all of a sudden that newbie gets one sided like everyone else because of false accusations. I did a small survey on the “Pride and Glory” movie. Just some questions such as, 1) do you feel this movie is a good form of information...
