There is a way to reduce corruption in pollitics/government. Reduce the power
of the government.

I know this sounds counter intuitive, but you have to understand what drives
corruption. Corruption in the context of pollitics/government occurs because an
individual (inside or outside of governenment) or an organization (corporations,
unions, non-profit interest groups) sees the oportunity to use the force of
government to his/her/its advantage at the expense of others.

You can not reduce corruption by increasing the power of govenrment for two
reasons. One, the corruptors are part of or in bed with the government. Two,
increasing the power of the government only increases the degree of advantage
that can be gained by corruption and there for increases the level of effort
that the corruptors put in to corruption.

By reducing the power of the government, the degree of advantage that the
corruptors can gain is reduced. This is the only way to reduce corruption.
