Most Americans Think The Government Is Corrupt

Americans may finally be waking up, even minimally. A majority of those living in the United States believe that the government is corrupt and unaccountable.

This brings to mind a quote:

“Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.”

-John Dahlberg Acton

That means that anytime you hand power to anyone, their morality will decrease as the desire to control others increases. No one cedes power willingly either. If we have learned anything from 2020 it’s that those in power or authority figures are not in it for us, but themselves.

Seventy-three percent of Americans say that elected officials do not face “serious consequences” for misconduct, according to a new Pew Research Center poll.

A closer look reveals that a mere 21 percent of those leaning Democrat and 32 percent of Republicans believe there is some basic justice for delinquent politicians.

This is not the only issue where US liberals and conservatives almost reach a consensus.

Seventy percent of US citizens don’t think the government is “open and transparent,” while 60 percent of both Republicans and Democrats believe that judges aren’t free from the influence of parties and politicians.

However, Americans still think reform is the answer. It’s not. Not allowing others to have power over you is the answer. That means once the system falls (and it will) we replace it with nothing. No more masters and no more slaves.  The good news though, is that some Americans are at least finally understanding that corruption is inevitable in every government under any “established rule” over others.
