A human-like race develops into a modern society similar to ours in technological progress, with one weird difference: in their minds, they can see and hear everything that anyone else has seen or heard, ever.
They have their own private thoughts, but experiences are shared across a mental link. People aren't aware of the contents of this information inherently - while naturally able to access it, they have to spend some time navigating and thinking about a particular experience to learn any information portrayed. Not only experiences that are happening now, but all experiences they've ever been aware of are shared. In this way, even memories of the dead are passed down, so everyone is able to remember every sight and sound experienced up to tens of thousands of years to the age when their race first developed this ability.
At first the mental link was blurry and weak, but as best as they can tell, this started happening to their primitive ancestors after a large meteor wiped out an entire continent.
Ages ago their ancestors developed primitive religions based on this ability, and some modern religions still attribute the ability to being created by the gods. And while modern scientists have demonstrated that a certain part of the brain is responsible for processing the information, they can't yet explain where all the information is stored. Regardless, no one doubts this mental ability's accuracy.
I'm curious to know in this world, does political corruption happen, and if so, how does it happen?
