In an over-regulated society corruption is inevitable. (MICA)


  • Forcing human mind to follow rules, which are unnecessary and biased make them revolutionary and they move towards revenge. Corruption is one of ways to take revenge from government.

  • Few people believe laws are made to be broken so this is case of economic phenomenon of regulatory arbitrage.

  • Over regulation can lead to complex laws and if population fails to understand those laws then they can unintentionally break laws. For example tax system is so complex in our country that many people are failing to pay taxes due to complexity.

  • Example of over regulation could be complex traffic rules. If traffic rules are too complex then eventually people will fail to understand so break those rules.


  • Corruption is a personal equation and holds good or bad depending on an individual's and organization's personal value systems. Regulations, like democracy are a systemic phenomenon; both have nothing to do with each other.


  • Over regulating simple things of daily life can create problems; but regulations are must to run the complex modern life.

  • Over regulations can make human life monotonous.

Point: As long as humans exist, the desire to fulfill one's own needs exist. Some people call this corruption especially when that person has convinced a populace to allowing them to make decisions on their behalf. The only shelter from the reality of greed is to make what benefits the bourgeoisie benefit the figure head. Otherwise human nature results in greater inequities.

Point: if we want to impose rules and regulations then they should be perfect in all sense. we used to think that rules are made to break because those rules are not perfect.So a society sholdn't be over-regulated,it should be perfectly regulated

Point: Since our forefathers, we are ruled so in any form we need to be regulated otherwise it would be a chaos. And for corruption, it depends on one's personal means,, we can regulate human, not their beings. So there is no clear relation between two of these.
