My point was simple, if you only take out the people paying the bribes, and not those accepting them, someone else will step up and start bribing the people in government
i'm saying take out both, you're focusing only on one side
who has the power to create the framework that the companies work in - the government
this is retarded beyond belief. if government were weaker or nonexistent, companies would still exist, and merely form their own security forces, against which you have no right to redress. power is not magic that government creates, it is merely assumed by whomever exerts it. why do you want to weaken the only institution you have on your side, government, and allow a freer hand to those who are already abusing you (corrupting your government) and would happily abuse you more without pesky rules and regulations?
