Luboya Numbi Buta Oscar
Abstract: The major concern of this paper about Moral Corruption in A. J. CRONINS The Citadel is to show how cupidity pushes people to conceive evil reasoning and very tricky evil schemes so as to get money or other favors forgetting the needs of the entire community. Throughout this paper, we intend then to transform the behavior of our contemporaries, among them we mention physicians and politicians. Briefly speaking, our contribution to this dissertation is to inform leaders that if they want to promote good moral values, they have to avoid corruption, misunderstanding of the ruled class, and they have to apply justice. It should be stressed from the beginning that the story turns around a young Doctor that we consider as the main character. His name is Andrew Manson. His story according to Cronin is situated around few years before World War II. He completed his studies in England where corruption is the only way of survival, above all in the medical field. MANSON gets really, shocked face to this bad situation which prevailed in the English medical world. That moral corruption is brought about and made possible by a bad medical organization system in England some few years before the global World War II. He tries to fight against it, but in the end he retraced his step, became himself the victim of this corruption. Our preoccupation is also to prove with Cronin that corruption is a universal matter. INTRODUCTION Unlimited power is apt to corrupt the minds of those who posseses it, and this I know, my Lord that where laws end, tyranny begins. . William Pitt
