Corruption is rampant only in a closed, opaque state apparatus.

The closeness of the state apparatus is possible only under an authoritarian regime.

An authoritarian regime is possible in the absence of political competition and democracy.

Therefore, it is useless to fight corruption in an authoritarian state, because some corrupt officials will be replaced by other corrupt officials.

We need to fight for democracy. In a democracy, political competitors will not allow each other to create a vicious corruption system.
