Please Sir, Can I Have One Too?

The basic reason why Malaysia has so many problems in various areas is a lack of integrity among leaders and this allows people in various government departments to devise schemes to benefit themselves.

Just one very simple example:
The PM promptly paid up for all his traffic offences but all the other ministers have still not settled their fines. This shows a lack of integrity.
You can read an article on integrity here.

Once the top leadership treats national assets like PETRONAS, forests, EPF, Bank Negara like their personal property, it does not take long for the lower ranks to do likewise.

The latest move to eliminate this Customs "giveaway" is a right step but my guess is that there are hundreds of "get us rich" schemes out there.

Integrity is who you are when no one is looking. This is definitely not a trait we inculcate our young with.
