How to eradicate corruption?

    The last week at the hub was marked by extensive discussions about possible options for the direct expression of the will of citizens and the holding of referenda.
    However, as many participants in the discussions have rightly noted, any implementation of such an idea will run into a significant obstacle - corruption.
    About the methods of combating corruption, I would like to talk in this topic.

    I ’ll make a reservation right away, this post was not written by me, but by a LiveJournal user and just a good person, nadovsem , but it seemed to me so interesting that I would venture to offer it for familiarization to hara-people.    Let's play!    You are a good person with a salary of $ 500, but you need to live, and you still get $ 5 thousand left money. So at your work everyone does.

       You yourself are against corruption, but how to live?
       And here is the solution! Your salary is increased 3 times, now you will receive $ 1,500. But with one condition - you are asked to no longer take these 5 thousand. $. True, they add that they will control you as before, that is, they will not. Yes, and there is no time for control, we must earn money ourselves. And how to control you, you are a policeman, and you yourself are a controller! Well, stop corruption together?
       The increase in monetary allowances is envisaged by the reform of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, said Minister Rashid Nurgaliev. Police promise to triple the salary.
       You replied that you would not take the illegal $ 5 thousand? Well, then my offer will not scare you. It is necessary to use a lie detector. Ask a policeman once a year one question: “Did you have any illegal income last year?”, And record this minute procedure on camera.
       A polygraph (lie detector) is inexpensive and cannot be fooled. Our forensic science professor, a huge man who worked all his life in the organs, conducted an experiment. He took a card from the deck and showed it to everyone, after which he interrupted the cards. One by one, he opened the cards and said: "This is not her." And so 36 times, including when I got the one that everyone showed at the beginning. He tried to trick the device, he did not succeed, the experiment was carried out 3 times. I must say that the test was held on a simple polygraph, which has only 3 sensors. Modern ones have 11.
       Our legislation does not consider polygraph evidence as evidence. And it is not necessary! At the same time, any position in the civil service is obtained by competition and every year the contract is renewed. What prevents you from renewing this contract?

       It is impossible to replace the police at once, this is understandable.
       No revolutions, let's do it wisely:    Three years - and there is no corruption in the bodies!
       No need to rush. The next three years can be devoted to the lower level of civil servants, and then to the highest staff, including the Government.
       The police take strong, courageous, with good health, but these are all competitive conditions. Just add one more condition of the competition - polygraph.
       The idea is good because you can always say: “The polygraph was mistaken,” no one puts labels, no harassment, just a contest.

    UPD of May 26, 2010 : I
    came across an interesting study of the Levada Center on the problem of bribes. It turns out that not everything is so simple. Here is his text:

    More than half of the inhabitants of the Russian Federation cannot live without bribes
    MOSCOW (Reuters) - Everyone who encounters officials in Russia has to pay bribes, more than half of the residents of the Russian Federation are convinced, a Levada Center poll showed.

    Over 10 years, the number of those holding this opinion has grown to 55 percent from 51 percent in 2000, the Levada Center said.

    Only 10 percent of respondents believe that “crooks and criminals” corrupt officials, while 30 percent of respondents believe that “mostly bribes are given by ordinary people who have no other way to solve their problems.” Also, 29 percent of participants in a previous survey in 2000 thought. Then the blame for corruption on the "crooks and criminals" laid 13 percent of respondents.

    A Levada Center survey showed that 47 percent of applicants gave officials money in envelopes "reluctantly," and 33 percent described the emotions they experienced as "great resistance." And only 11 percent give bribes "with a light heart."

    Respondents admitted that over the past three years, they personally or their relatives most often had to bribe officials when registering companies, as well as “appease” traffic police officers in exchange for “forgiveness” for violating traffic rules, issuing a driver’s license or registering a vehicle and making inspection .

    The third place in the “rating” of corruption from the Levada Center is in the courts, whose employees, judging by the results of the survey, do not disdain bribes, especially when it comes to criminal proceedings.

    The survey showed that Russians also often have to bribe medical staff - for the sake of normal care in hospitals, employers - in order to obtain the desired position, as well as local authorities to issue the necessary certificates and documents and apply for housing rights.

    Judging by the results of the survey, not only the lives of Russians, but also their departure to a different world are not without corruption: about 10 percent of Levada Center respondents admitted that they paid bribes when organizing the funeral of their loved ones.

    According to a 2009 survey, Transparency International ranked Russia 146th out of 180 in terms of corruption in the public sector, next to Cameroon and Zimbabwe.
