Do you think culture accounts for relationships more than relationships account for culture? Or do extended relationships become culture? Does this have anything to do with geography? If so, how? If not, why call it Eastern culture?

The power to corrupt comes from the desire to do so, not from the magnitude of the power. It seems to me that people pretend that "power corrupts" so that they don't have to take responsibility for their own corruption (however weak).
