There is no doubt that this cartoon vividly depicts a negative but rampant scenario in modern society: commercial bribery. Frightened by the sharp punishment sword, the man, carrying a large pile of money used as bribery, is trying his best to escape. What is conveyed by the drawing is both realistic and thought-provoking.
The implication of the given picture can be elaborated in terms of the decline of work-moral values and the view on money. For one thing, commercial bribery has a very damaging and destructive effect on the whole society. Firstly, moral deficiencies as well as the humanity weakness revealed in the action of bribery may stain and pollute the atmosphere of professional ethics and cause others to copy. Secondly, fair competition may be threatened because bribery puts honest businessmen at a disadvantaged position. For another, the bad behavior of commercial bribery is largely driven by "profit", showing that those people who are involved in bribery do not have a right view on money. It is true that money is indispensable, but, there is no denying that money should be obtained and spent in a reasonable, wise and legitimate way.
To eliminate the immoral behavior of bribery thoroughly, drastic actions should be taken and severe punishment measures should be adopted. Besides, a positive mental guidance on the right attitude to money should be popularized among the public. Only in this way can we have a fair and sound social environment.
