Abstract

Dealing with corruption is significantly essential for the health of socials, no matter what their political, social or economic nature. These days, people are more sensitive about the fight against corruption as they concern about their communities, societies, economics, businesses, environments, and countries. This is because numbers of corruptions have been increasing as well as amounts of corrupted money also have increased. This includes techniques of corruption have gotten more complicated than unexpected. Therefore, a generic theory of corruption is explored and social dimensions of activity can all contribute to processes of corruption when a complexity of ideological/ethical interconnections becomes pathological. Illustration of the issues that are involved is provided by brief examinations of the Thai Police, the Ratchadaphesek Road case, and the Thailand Reformation of State Railway.

Keywords: Corruption, knowledge cybernetics, ideology, ethics, pathologies
