Debate: Is corruption a moral or a legal issue?

Too often the corruption debate and discussions all over the world are focused on how somebody broke a law. By that definition Mahatma Gandhi was the most corrupt man since he periodically broke British laws!

By dictionary definition corruption relates to doing things which are not ethical.

Hence how should the corruption be defined and fought for greater good?

  • Nov 4 2012: The base of morality is reason & knowing self & world in humanitarian way with scientific attitude,conflict between them (should) cause carrying out law.So this question is analytical but life is synthetic,making non humanitarian guidelines as law to rule & suppress, identify Gandhiji law breaker ! (how you define corruption & morality?). The question should be , Can we control corruption & morality legally ?
