There are only 2 exceptions when giving/taking a bribe is acceptable:
- When the size of your hope/vision/dream is smaller than the bribe. If all you ever hope to achieve is a million, then someone offers you a billion, then its understandable taking a bribe.
- When the absence of the bribe will result to a greater evil, like when someone’s life is at stake.
In all circumstances, its important to note that the exceptions listed above are based on reasoning, and when in such a crossroad, its only wise to seek a second opinion from your morality.
