Structural violence is an activity which deprives the State of resources it otherwise would have used to take care of the welfare of the people of the State. Structural violence is an invisible violence. It kills without being seen. Acts of bribery, corruption and the white collar crime affect a State’s ability to execute its responsibilities to its people. People should not suffer unnecessarily when the State has the means but fails to steward its responsibilities.

“It is error alone which needs the support of Government. Truth can stand by itself.” - Thomas Jefferson
“Even if you are a minority of one, the truth is the truth.” - Mahatma Gandhi
