The word CORRUPTION has a 21st century meaning that isn't the twentieth century label of shame *dishonest or fraudulent conduct" by those in power typically involving bribery.
In this 21st century of double entendre and convoluted words and meanings, "corruption" can be in the eye of the beholder.
"Corruption" thus becomes *the process by which something, typically a word or expression, is changed from its original use or meaning to one that is regarded as erroneous or debased. Synonyms: alteration, bastardization, debasement, adulteration.
To build on my hypothesis.
21st century "corruption" is like eating a fat thick steak via a slaughterhouse of slaughtered cattle herded into place for the coup de grace when the slaughterhouse turns into a farm where fish is raised.
Can "corruption" be assigned to a deliberate "adulteration"?
Like pretending slaughterhouse beef is really farm raised fish tastes like steak and can't damage the environment, but is a farm raised fish bastardization of steak?
