Public corruption, born of greed and an unhealthy lust for power, has been a relentless assault on some of the most deep-seated values in society; those being honesty, honor, integrity, and fairness. These are the values that bind the leaders of society and the people together. When the people perceive, or actually know, that their leaders are deficient in these values, the government put in place by these leaders begins to lose legitimacy. With that, the seeds of alienation, apathy, and discord will take rootnot like budding flowers, but like strangling weeds., says Vincent E. Green.
In his new book, Corruption in the Twenty-First Century: Combating Unethical Practices in Government, Commerce, and Society (published by iUniverse), Green proposes taking the fight to combat corruption to the doorsteps of those immoral individuals who up until now have relied on the virtual screen of protection provided by the continuing lip service and sound-bites from uncommitted and timid leaders and misguided pundits purporting to be carrying the cause of the muffled voices of the people victimized by corruption.
Green offers Corruption in the Twenty-First Century as a building block for the dam that will hold back that flood of corruption in our societies. It will help to mix the ethical and moral mortar to construct a pedestal made of bricks of truth upon which a new generation of corruption-fighting warriors of continued high ethical and moral character may stand and preach the good word of integrity.
Corruption in the Twenty-First Century offers a somewhat unique mixture of memoir and text book as Green teaches through storytelling, battle plans and proven strategies used in combatting corruption from a global prospective of more than 30 years of experience. At the same time, he also incorporates valuable information, as well as short, medium and long term plans that can be implemented to begin the eradication of the disease known as corruption.
