However, I'd phrase it as "not everything is corrupt". The "everything is not corrupt" phrasing is as if to say that there is no corruption anywhere because "everything" (all) is "not corrupt", as if there is no thing that is corrupt.

"Not everything is corrupt" means that there is corruption but it only applies to some things, not all things. That means "it is not true that everything is corrupt".

Can you hear the shovels as they turn the soil?

Or does your sunny optimistic whistling drown out the gravediggers’ toiling?

There are no ghosts. There are no zombies. It's just a place where people who have died are buried. They can't hurt you. They're dead.

Your so-called "graveyard" isn't scary if you walk into it with your eyes open and with a group of other people walking with you.

It's only scary if you avoid it at all costs.

10. What does this graveyard look like?...Is it a place that millions want to come to?

Does it have free public education?
Is there a free and open press and media?
Can people basically say what they want..(at long as it isn't threatening to someone or groups?)
Are people told what to do?
Are people allowed to be ....unemployed?
Can people exist if they have no job?
Why are millions wanting to come to this "so called graveyard"?
...Why do people try to sneak into the graveyard every day of the year?
Define this graveyard clearly..Explain what you are talking about..
If you want to, (and have the means) can you publish a newspaper?
What is the limit on voting in the graveyard?
Are there public forums in the graveyard?
Who is in charge of the graveyard?
