This article focuses mainly on corruption. It argues in thirty-five theses, the non-centrality of corruption. Corruption is not only a red-herring but fundamentally diversionary It stresses that the point at issue, should be the capitalist social formation which contradictory dynamics breed corruption. The capitalist accumulation process infects society with selfishness, greed, antagonistic individualism and impunity all of which intensify corruption. It concludes by calling attention to a socialist social formation which has the capacity by the sheer fact of its internal dynamics, rooted in social justice, to externuate, if not totally, eradicate corruption.
