Synopsis: “Public ethics start from the concern of bad public services due to conflict of interest and corruption. Various efforts of the improvement of bureaucracy and politic organisation have been done. Commissions are formed, ministers are replaced, but corruption never diminishes and public services are becoming worse. When the corrections of bureaucracy and tighter supervision have been done yet corruption are still rampant, it means the mistake lies in the organisation itself. The crucial thing that needs to be done is by changing the organisation’s system by integrating public ethics inside the public service organisation. Public ethics do not only emphasise on ethical codes or norms, but also on its reflective dimension. Public ethics could help the ministers and politician in considering the choice of public policy facility and an evaluation tool which calculate its ethical consequences. Therefore, the focus has been directed at the ethical modality, which is how to bridge the gap between moral norm (what should have been done?) and the factual action. This concern of this modality of public ethics is what distinguishes it from religious teachings or other moral. When public ministers couldn’t even distinguish firmly and clearly between public and private areas, then public ethics is so relevant to be taught. Example: The act of forcefully revealing the traffic one’s own comfort, defining the active relations between budget control and private or group welfare, making a sudden decision for own safety, collusion for commission and even incomprehension or ignorance for meaning and way to avoid conflict of interest. They all correlate negatively with public service’s quality, because not only that they don’t appreciate public ethics, but they don’t even know about public ethics. Everything returns to the leader’s exemplariness, because it’s impossible for people to model their leader.
