All man-made systems, economic,political etc., are weighted in favour of the haves.Does it mean we have to live with corruption? No. Develop a manipulation-free investigative and judicial system. Staff it adequately and carefully and see corruption dwindling fast. This is what Anna's movement was advocating. Quibbling over who is more venal, the political class or corporates, is a time-wasting sideshow. When intellectuals dissipate themselves in such inert controversies, the vested interests are happy.
