I too, will succumb to temptation!

The Late Mr Roh Moo-hyun
(From BBC News)

I will also succumb to temptation.

When a person is exposed to temptation (of whatever sorts) for a prolonged period that person will succumb to its grab, especially when there is no check whatsoever. Add a dash of power to it, the person surely will fall victim to unchecked temptation.

The only control is to implement a system of check and balances with the leadership of a "no-nonsense" incumbent. It has to be leadership by example and not "talk only" policy. If the leadership and the system are rotten then don't expect the rest to stay "fresh".

The suicide of former South Korean President Roh Moo-hyun is indeed a tragedy. How many of us can hold our heads high and declare to the world that we are Mr Clean 100%? I dare not.

Even a small fish in murky waters will be polluted. Don't blame the fish, clean up the water.

You can read the tragic story of Mr Roh at BBC News HERE and HERE:

May Mr Roh Moo-hyun rest in peace.
