  40. 40. INTEGRITY AND HONOR, CORRUPTIONAND DISHONOR<br />Since an intelligence common to us all makes things known to us and formulates them in our minds, honorable actions are ascribed by us to virtue, and dishonorable actions to vice; and only a madman would conclude that these judgments are matters of opinion, and not fixed by nature. <br /> - Marcus Tullius Cicero<br />Jim Wesberry<br />University of the East<br />Manila, August 18, 2010<br />22<br />

  54. 54. INTEGRITY AND HONOR, CORRUPTIONAND DISHONOR<br />If the chief party, whether it be the people, or the army, or the nobility, which you think most useful and of most consequence to you for the conservation of your dignity, be corrupt, you must follow their humor and indulge them, <br />and in that case honesty and <br />virtue are pernicious. <br />- Machiavelli<br />Jim Wesberry<br />University of the East<br />Manila, August 18, 2010<br />36<br />

  60. 60. INTEGRITY AND HONOR, CORRUPTIONAND DISHONOR<br />Concluding remarks from a recent study (1)<br />“The level of corruption in the Philippines…failed to show significant improvement despite decades-long struggle to curb corruption through various laws and policies. Deeply entrenched personalistic politics is an obstacle to reform efforts. Another reason is turf war between present and previous incumbent politicians. The new administration tends to abandon programs initiated by the previous administration…wasting incremental success achieved by the previous government…<br />Jim Wesberry<br />University of the East<br />Manila, August 18, 2010<br />42<br />
  61. 61. INTEGRITY AND HONOR, CORRUPTIONAND DISHONOR<br />Concluding remarks from a recent study (2)<br />The Neo-Patrimonial System (using state resources to secure loyalty in the general population) is sustained by commonly seen features in developing countries, particularly ethno-linguistic fractionalization, absence of democracy and accountability and economic inequality…productive forces have to learn to operate within this system, while keeping a firm long-term goal of creating a system which will value integrity and dignity much more than personal and material gains from political power.”<br />– From Corruption and Development, Revisited, Jenny D.
