    world government: Pure justice/obviously corrupted?

    we know that the world government treated nico robin's town's people, how they ordered the chiper pol to kill them, how they allowed the world nobles' tyranny, how they covered the void century and their flaws. Now let's recall our hero's crimes. Did luffy ever killed someone or that he ever did a crime worth to be hunted down dead/alive?

    What's your opinion regarding world government related characters? Do you think that good characters like garp, coby, and helmeppo belongs to such organization?

    Well he keeps saying he is a pirate, which is by definition a felony. Beating people up just 'cause you don't like them is also against the law. I'd say he has a sentence to serve.

    The World Government is an organization built upon thousands of dead bodies of the people of the Kingdom of D and the people of Ohara,and a sea of blood that went along with that.It's organization whose 'morals' and goal are to preserve the power and authority that those thieves stole from someone else.You're asking if they are corrupt.No,they are not.To become corrupt,someone needs to have been good at some point in time.However,the WG has been downright evil from the very beginning.After they stole the power they now possess,they limited the technological information that the people receive and kept it all to themselves making the WG and the Marines the most technologically advanced organization.They openly massacred and sank an entire island because they just assumed that their knowledge would be a threat,when those people were only interested in the knowledge itself.They allow the Celestial Dragons to do as they please and prosecute those go against them even if their actions are just.

    However,that only goes for the WG,the Marines are not such a case.The Marines organization was created on just and righteous morals and with the intent of protecting people,compared to the WG.Of course there are corrupt individuals in this organization,who have their own justice and try to force it one way or another,like Akainu.But there are also people like Garp,Coby,Helmeppo and let's not forget many people's favorites,Smoker,Tashigi and Fujitora.Those people should be in the Marines,yes.The ones who don't belong there are people like Akainu and Kizaru.

    As for pirates,they should actually be wanted and captures,yeah.The freedom to act as they please without any laws binding them down is a form of power that has been taken advantage of by many.Luffy is an exception because he desires freedom itself.In other words,to most pirates freedom is just a means to plunder,while to Luffy freedom is not a means to an end,but the end itself.I personally like Luffy's brand of justice but it's not something shared by many pirates.

    Sure, the World Government may have some bad apples, but the same could be said about pirates. We have good kings like Nefeltari Cobra, Dalton, and Riku Doldo III under their jurisdiction, as well as good Marines like Garp and Coby. While the Government does have this twisted ideology that is found in some of their ranks, their whole purpose is to simply protect people by the law. Pirates are simply bad people that harm others, as well as Marines that take advantage of their subordinates to further their own selfish aims. What makes Luffy a good guy, as well as Garp and other good Marines, is because their ideals are reflected in their actions.
