Are tougher laws the answer to reduce corruption? Or should we reduce our greed by becoming more spiritual?

Recently India witnessed the power of non-violence pressure strategy mastered by Mahatma Gandhi. Anna Hazare with his 13 days fast unto death was able to persuade the Government to discuss and pass a powerful bill which will hopefully reduce corruption in the country with a strong hand. In a corrupt society who will man this body or who will bell the cat!

A superior strategy could be to look inwards and see why we become greedy and how to reduce our greed for resources. By following the creed of simple living and high thinking we may be able to reduce corruption and live sustainably. A recent public lecture outlined this strategy. http://www.nariphaltan.org/indsearch2011.pdf
