I'm Just Sayin' - Our culture of lying and cheating: Apparently it pays off

Email

With all the press coverage lately of lying and cheating politicians and athletes, it caused me to wonder why. Are we born with the propensity to lie and cheat? No. It is something we absorb from our parents, mentors and society. It is not taught intentionally. However, we see people lie and cheat as we grow and mature and gradually it seeps into our world view of how to act in society. A large percentage of us learn to reject it and try to live our lives by a righteous and moral code.
