There is a correlation between public corruption and transparency.

The correlation is inverse and causal; the more you have of the one, the less you have of the other. As transparency increases, corruption decreases.

If there is enough transparency there will be no corruption.

It can be made impossibly difficult to hide public corruption and incompetence.

Whatever else we do in order to end the culture of corruption in state government, the one thing we must do is to deny the corrupt and the incompetence the opportunity to hide their corruption and incompetence.

Perhaps the Governmental Restructuring Task Force could appoint a sub-committee on transparency.

Though they have that authority, link,
there is no indication that they have that intention.

So far.

The next meetings are June 21st and 22nd, link.

The battle ground against the culture of corruption is
the issue of transparency.

If we lose that battle, not one of the rest will make
one wit of difference.
