onohara_sept10汚職とは政治家などが権力を間違った使い方をすることです。例えば、わいろを受け取ることなど。同じ単語で腐敗を意味することがありますが、古い使い方です。ただ、「今時の子はロックンロールでダメにされてる」などと言うときに「corrupt」を使います。

Corruption is what we call it when people, such as politicians, misuse their power for personal gain, e.g. taking bribes. The same word can describe rot or decay, but that is an old-fashioned usage. However, we still use it to say things like, “Kids these days are being corrupted by rock-and-roll music.”
