Lets get some backbone and cut out the lying and cheating in our shallow society

I just don’t understand when people are willing to lie, cheat, or steal to get what they want. What good is it if you don’t get it fair and square? Call me old fashioned, but I just don’t approve of our world and the shallowness and greed of our society. We are only here for a few years, and the old saying “you can’t take it with you” is absolutely true. Having the trust and respect of others is worth more than any material things this world has to offer. A lie is a coward’s way out. I say if we are too weak to face the truth, we don’t amount to much. Of course its easier to lie our way out of situations, but nearly invariably we will get found out sooner or later, and then we have forever lost the trust and respect of those involved. Much better to get our tail out from between our legs and just tell the truth to start with. The same goes for stealing; It is a cowardly cheap way of trying to do what most people refer too as “bettering themselves”. It is certainly not bettering yourself, its making yourself look cheap. If you are not big or smart enough to earn it fairly, then at least be big enough to do without it.
