Corruption

Thesis
Do you know what the meaning of corruption is? What is the relation between money
and corruption? Well, corruption is common everywhere in the world, even in the
United States. Its just a matter of intensity. However, it is quite shocking when one
reliable survey claims Jakarta as the most corrupt place in Indonesia.
(Apa kamu tahu arti dari korupsi? Apa hubungannya uang dengan korupsi? Baiklah,
korupsi merupakan hal yang umum di dunia, bahkan di Amerika. Hanya merupakan
masalah intensitas. Tetapi, sangat mengejutkan ketika salah satu survey menyatakan
bahwa Indonesia merupakan tempat yang paling banyak melakukan korupsi di
Dunia terutama di daerah Jakarta)hal itu dikarenakan Jakarta merupakan ibu kota
Indonesia dimana tempat pusat pemerintahan dijalankan. Korupsi yang dilakukan
bermacam-macam tidak hanya korupsi uang namun juga ada korupsi waktu.
Korupsi waktu misalnya seorang pejabat yang tidak menghadari rapat maupun tidak
datang pada saat jam kerja. Pada saat ini di Indonesia korupsi telah merajalela
bahkan sekarang para koruptor tidak malu lagi ketika melakukan korupsi.
(Do you know the meaning of corruption? What does money with corruption? Okay,
corruption is common in the world, even in America. Only a matter of intensity.
However, very surprising when one survey stated that Indonesia is a place that
most do corruption in the World, especially in the area of Jakarta) it is because the
Indonesian capital of Jakarta is a place where the seat of government is run.
Corruption of a variety of corruption not only money but also a time of corruption.
Corruption, for example when an officer who is not meeting and not coming
menghadari during working hours. At this time in Indonesia, corruption is rampant
even now the criminals are not shy anymore when corruption.

Argument 1
The survey has made me sad, actually, because I stay and earn a living here in the
capital. As most people know, Tanjung Priok port smuggling is not a new thing at all.
Entrepreneurs who want to minimize their tax payments tend to do such a thing more
often. They even bribe the officials.
Hal ini sebenernya membuat saya sedih karena bagaimana negara ini bisa maju
apabila pejabat yang telah diberi amanat tidak dapat dipercaya. Seperti yang semua
tahu, akhir-akhir ini banyak para pejabat di Indonesia yang tertangkap karena
melakukan korupsi. Korupsi yang dilakukan adalah korupsi uang. Dan mereka
kebanyakan adalah seorang wakil rakyat yang seharusnya mensejahterakan hidup
rakyatnya. Namun pada kenyataannya mereka malah mengambil sesuatu yang
bukan haknya.
It actually makes me sad because of how this country can move forward when the officials who
have been given the mandate can not be trusted. As all know, these days many of the officials in
Indonesia are caught because of corruption. Corruption is the corruption of money. And they
mostly are a representative of the people who should prosper its people live. But in fact they
even take something that is not right.

Argument 2
Well, I think the measures taken so far to overcome the problem by punishing the
corruptors is still not far enough. We have to prevent the younger generations from
getting a bad mentality caused by corruption.
(Baiklah, saya pikir untuk mengatasi masalah tersebut salah satunya dengan
menghukum para koruptor yang bahkan tidak malu lagi untuk melakukan korupsi.
Namun di sisi lain jika hanya menghukum para koruptor itu masih jauh dari kata
cukup. Kita juga harus mencegah para generasi muda dari sikap buruk yang
nantinya mengarah pada tindakan korupsi. Karena generasi muda kelak yang akan
menjadi penerus bangsa.)

(Well, I think to overcome these problems one by punishing the corruptors who are not even
ashamed anymore to do corruption. Yet on the other hand, if only to punish the corrupt it is far
from enough. We also need to prevent the younger generation from the bad attitude which will
lead to corruption. Due to the younger generation who will be the future of the nation.)

Recommendation
I believe we should start at the earliest stages in school and I think everyone should be
involved in the effort to eradicate corruption. We must not make any distinction.
Saya percaya jika kita harus memulai langkah awal tersebut dari sekolah yaitu
dengan mengajarkan para murid untuk tidak menyontek ketika ujian maupun
menjaga diri untuk tidak melakukan hal yang negatif karena sifat tersebut apabila
sudah dibiasakan maka sama saja dia belajar untuk menjadi koruptor dan saya pikir
mulai dari sekarang semua orang harus di ikut sertakan dalam usaha untuk
membasmi korupsi tanpa ada pengecualian apapun. Karena hal itu akan menentukan
nasib kehidupan di masa depan.

I believe if we had to start the initial steps of the school is to teach students not to cheat when
exams and keep yourself to not do the negative because of the nature of the habit when they are
the same then he learned to be corrupt and I think from now on everyone should be included in
efforts to eradicate corruption without any exceptions. Because it will determine the fate of life
in the future.

Let's Make Campaign Of Reading


Reading habit is poor among Indonesians because most people havent
realized the importance of reading
Reading is important to transform knowledge and technology. By reading,
one knows the world. He or she will understand what he doesnt see by himself or
herself. The lines of the paragraphs in an article contain pieces of knowledge. The
knowledge is needed to improve the quality of humans life. Technology
transformation from other country can only be done by reading a lot various
sources of literature. Valuable books in libraries and bookstores mean nothing if
they are not read.
Realizing the importance of reading will make someone motivated to read.
When we know that something is very important because it can give us valuable
information, we will try to get or do the thing. For example, a businessman who
always follows latest information or news, will know what to do in his/ her
business. He will make a good decision to make a transaction. Most people in
all developed countries have realized the importance or reading andthey have good
reading habits. In bus and train stations, vehicles, waiting rooms, parks, people
like reading. They enjoy reading which gives them valuable knowledge and
inspiration.
A good understanding toward the importance of reading can be achieved by
well organized and effective campaign. To plant an understanding in a generations
minds is not an easy job. It needs a hard work from all components of the nation,
especially the government. A serious campaign which is organized by the central
and local government can help common people wake up and stand to face the real
competition. The campaign can be done through various kinds of mass media such
as TV, radio, booklets, bulletins, newspapers, magazines. It can also be conducted
by teachers, parents and all people who care.
Therefore, a nation-wide effective campaign of the importance of reading by
all components of the nation should be done, facilitated by the government, to face
the tighter competition. The world has forced globalization. Those people with
little knowledge will be left behind. To speed up the better change in this country, a
good reading habit is really important.
