False righteousness or simply conditioning?



i had recently read a book about research in honesty when i saw it again in a blog post by a post doctoral researcher.

Something didn't feel right.

These all seem to confuse honesty with custom (no matter the claim that it was assessing how people deal with issues of honesty).


That's not honesty.

Honesty is seeing the thing for what it is.

Not pointing at behavior and trying use it to define an imaginary cultural line with some absolute truth.

I wonder what sort of automaton or apparatchik mind would happily put their name to such a document.
