Disagreement about the purpose of streets and sidewalks.
Most corruption is well beyond “simple” violations of the law. Corruption is the action of process of decay of something. Criminal forms of corruption are violations of the written laws.
Other forms of corruption erode away the foundations of the social agreements we make about how society should function. For example, in the photo above, there are cars parked all over the sidewalks, and people are forced to walk in the streets. This happens in many countries and cities around the world and creates a tsunami of small obstacles for pubic policy makers that are trying to build economies.
The basic social agreement in the photo above is that “streets are for cars” and “sidewalks are for people.”
Decay of this agreement occurs when the auto owner chooses to break this agreement and the first policeman chooses to ignore the problem.
