Jo M. Sekimonyo
Jo Mutabazi Sekimonyo (born April 4, 1974) is a political economy author, theorist, and activist. Sekimonyo asserts that in the twenty-first-century more common people acquire and own their means of engagement, participation, or involvement in an enterprise. As the result, capitalism, socialism, and communism have lost their raison d'êtres. He proposes a new philosophical, social, political, and economic ideology, Ethosism.

- I have found that the easiest way in explaining my view of the difference between corruption and corruptibility and cooling off the public's penchant for adoring "white whales" is in referring to our human body. On the one hand, corruption is like hook‐ worms, which attack the wall of the small intestine and stunt the victim's growth and mental development. On the other hand, when people are paid meager wages, living in dehumanizing conditions, corruptibility becomes a way of sustenance.
