  • So why are we honest?
    • Gross Exaggeration:
      • Loss of Power & Snipping
    • Pride in Family, Friends and Community
    • Keep Promises Because We Want To
    • Honesty is a Moral Choice – People are honest because they want to, not because they have to
    • Concepts of Trust & Virtue would be Empty – If bad faith and wickedness were not financially rewarding
