Defining a personal code of conduct
The current government of Australia is resisting an Integrity commission that would ensure politicians are not above the scrutiny of an independent body.
Asymmetrical power and access to advanced information are corrupting, even for the best of us.
The aged old story of the slow steady infection of corruption is the basis of our pop culture.
We all need our own self protection from our self corruption. This is the purpose of an Integrity Council.
We also need to define our personal code of conduct.
What is the line we will not cross?
When tested, can we trust ourselves?
The bargain is easy, to slip across that line. The consequence is a small incremental path to corruption, and the hubris of not even knowing we are there.
