Unveiling the Shadows: The Reality of Corruption and the Call for Accountability

Posted on January 4, 2024

The radio today had a guest, Dr. Rangan Chatterjee, discussing positivity and negativity. He talked about journaling life to figure out what makes us happy or unhappy. It got me thinking about watching a new ITV Drama on the Post Office Horizon scandal. Sometimes it’s tough balancing being informed and not feeling hopeless. Still, despite the tough content, it’s been eye-opening. It’s made me sure that there are truly awful people out there.

Getting Away with It

Why do they get away with it? I think most people are good at heart. Sure, we might differ in beliefs, influenced by media or peer pressure. Some act tough, saying things they don’t mean, but deep down, very few would willingly ruin someone’s life to save themselves. That’s how these wrongdoers escape consequences—because it’s hard for us to believe people can be that terrible.

The accusations against the Post Office seem like something out of a dystopian story—it’s almost too shocking to comprehend. Similarly, there’s been scandal over PPE & Test & Trace funds misuse. Some folks don’t care about the damage they cause as long as they profit. They’ll take money, hide it away, and dismiss any inquiries as nonsense, and sadly, people believe them because they don’t want to face the truth.

Mone & Barrowman – A Small Part in a Corrupt System

Big names like Michelle Mone and Doug Barrowman might be in the spotlight for their actions, but they’re just a small part of a much larger corrupt system. They’re furious because they got caught, but they’re not the only ones involved. Their theft was a small part of a much larger sum that went missing.

In the case of the Post Office, instead of owning up to faults in their system and making things right, they doubled down. They prosecuted innocent people who couldn’t defend themselves, demanding money back or threatening prison. Imagine being so invested in a faulty computer system that you’d bankrupt innocent people to protect it. That’s outrageous.

New Year Resolutions

As we make New Year resolutions, I wish more people would hold those in power accountable instead of defending them blindly. Let’s pledge not to dismiss shocking truths just because they’re hard to believe. These wrongdoers rely on us brushing off their victims as petty criminals or conspiracy theorists. We, as ordinary people, need to do better.
