The only Way for a corrupt free Democracy!
Around the world, all Democratic Systems are plagued by two specific characteristics of a few individuals in every System Viz., extreme possessive quality and a strong desire to dominate people! These two, the so called evils in all societies mar the prospects of the upcoming democracies in the world. When thus, these qualities exceed a limit in an individual, such a person will by all means be after the only way to express them i.e., through grabbing the unlimited power! This is where, in spite of having all round checks by others, a Ruler in Democracy freely goes ahead to rule in his/her own way but behind the doors….Meaning, having firmly secured the reins, the Ruler rules through the two well known weaknesses of certain selfish individuals with him/her. These two weaknesses of a man are getting lured through offer of additional goods and services or being afraid of a threat of withdrawal of support of men and material with him/her!
In such a scenario, the personalities alone become the most important entities of either the Ruler or of those backing the Ruler in a closer circle. i.e., a personality where an individual is not interested in the possessions or power except in a living based on hard work and honesty. Such a personality in the individuals alone can keep up the sanctity of a corruption free Democracy whether it lies in the individuals of the Ruling System or of an Agency or a Commission set up to go into the allegations made against the Ruler.
