SUMMARY 
Corruption in Chile, Latin America and world wide has a profound impact. When the spirit of a country begins to decay on account of the corruption of its political and/or economic powers, it heads straight into the abyss. The consequences can be grave if citizens are not willing to jointly oppose this social scourge, so typical of the thirst for power.

Although always hearing about probity and honesty, the people of Chile must increasingly face this problem. Presidential private expenses; political campaigns financed through the lobby of influence; the fortune of the today senator and ex dictator; money given to political parties from abroad; the president’s advisor who was under investigation; payments made to these advisors; the alarming compensation sums pay to State employees; the mistreatment of ex political refugees carried out by the State bank; loans by Indap; bribes paid in Conadi; the Copeva houses and the scandal over the gift of a race horse and so many other scandals publicly known are all proof that we are not immune to these crimes and that our beliefs are facing a deep crisis, even if the contrary is continually stated.
