Ancient Greeks: Aristotle on Corruption
The many are more incorruptible than the few;
they are like the greater quantity of water
which is less easily corrupted than a little.
“Aristotle, (born c. 384 bce—died c. 322 bce), is a towering figure in ancient Greek philosophy, making contributions to logic, metaphysics, mathematics, physics, biology, botany, ethics, politics, agriculture, medicine, dance and theatre. He was a student of Plato who in turn studied under Socrates. He was more empirically-minded than Plato or Socrates and is famous for rejecting Plato’s theory of forms.” ~ Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy
