Example text

Although one generally assumes that the law implements broader ethical or moral notions, there is no necessary connection between legality and what those ethical or moral notions prescribe—a connection that “corruption” seems to demand. In other words, although a judgment of illegality may be placed on corrupt conduct, it is not the illegality that makes the conduct corrupt. Rather, there are other pre-existing reasons for believing that particular conduct is corrupt; pre-existing reasons that illegality does not capture.

With the moral and emotional content of this idea comes the distinct risk of excess in the identification of corrupt targets, in the treatment of offenders, and in the ascription of the ills of the world to the workings of corruption. ”54 If a person who is accused of corruption is seen as a monster, “contaminated” by the virus of evil, the ability to enforce adherence to the legal procedures and protections that are required by the rule of law becomes difficult.
