Is the Rot at the Root?

If we are born innocent
Is human life corrupted by the World?
Or is human life corrupt unto itself?

The Fatal Flaw

I’ve come to the conclusion
The problem isn’t with Capitalism
Democracy, Communism
Or Socialism, per se
The problem is people
People are corruptible
And power corrupts
But this is nothing new
It just took me this long to come to terms
With a truth I did not want to accept
Societies,
(regardless the political and economic model,)
Are doomed to fail solely because
We cannot remove the one fatal flaw
Us
