Corruption inhibitors in cultures and institutions

Corruptors profit from the degradation they produce.

Corruption degrades cultures until they become a group of survivors led by stagnant survivors. This implies that the final stage, which implies that cultures become to live in an endless transition of manipulative leaders, is that individualism, which is the driver of corruption, prevails over the needs of the culture.

The morality of intentions prevails over the morality of actions which drives individuals into the survival ethical intelligence. Survival has no rules nor codes unless people need accomplices to survive.

The Corruption Inhibitor

That is why evolving cultures have a structural corruption inhibitor that hinders that the society enters a massive survival attitude.

Corruption is inhibited when there is a functional ethics which implies that functionality prevails over intentions, the justice is focus on ensuring equal opportunities for all and the society is transparent.

Expansive justice implies that individual action is protected by social repair and not only individual repair and there is a social sanction of all actions that are not within the system of a society.

This is only possible if there is a social transparency of the actions and individuals are identified based on their actions and added value in a society.

Market Growth: Consumerism is driven by fear and guilt

From a unicist ontological point of view consumerism is the habit of buying things that are unnecessary and are not used after they were bought.

It can be said that consumerism is an addiction that follows the rules of addictive behavior. People enter in this addiction in order to compensate their lack of self-esteem and autonomy.

Consumerism provides an instant of pleasure that ends as soon as no functionality can be found for what has been bought. The next purchase will provide the next instant of pleasure.

Fear of social exclusion and the guilt for not being able to fill the standards of a group are the main external drivers of consumerism.

The social benefit of consumerism is that it expands the economic activity of a society by fostering human work to have the money to consume.

Economic expansion requires a certain level of consumerism that varies according to the values of a culture.
