Global Integrity 7

Moral wholeness for a whole world

Transparency International

Integrity is moral wholeness—living consistently in moral wholeness. Its opposite is corruption, the distortion, perversion, and deterioration of moral goodness, resulting in the exploitation of people. Global integrity is moral wholeness at all levels in our world—from the individual to the institutional to the international. Global integrity is requisite for “building the future we want—being the people we need.” It is not easy, it is not always black and white, and it can be risky. These entries explore the many facets of integrity with a view towards the global efforts to promote sustainable development and wellbeing.

Corruption is the opposite of integrity.
It is moral decay. It is anti-integrity.
It’s not just them out there.
It is us. It’s time to wake up.

--Is corruption an all or noting thing, or is it on a continuum?
--Do we gradually slide into corruption or fall into it abruptly?

--How do we know if we are sleeping, or maybe even just sleepy, morally?
--How do people wake up?
