While corruption is most noticeable in government agencies and among business entities, it also occurs in religious organizations, nonprofit groups, sports teams, and individual families. Because corrupt behavior is not restricted to illegal activities alone, it can impact the fair and efficient operation of society whenever rules are broken, boundaries are trespassed, and standards are lowered. Although it is unlikely that any society will ever be successful in totally preventing corruption, there are steps that can be taken to control its impact and restrict its spreadand more checkpoints, additional guards, and increased openness are not among them.
