So I was just thinking and I really don't believe this has ever been discussed indepth or at all, as far as I know on here, so I just wanted to get other opinions on this topic. So the honor codes at the various academies and so forth stress not cheating, lying, stealing and so forth. But I was thinking, why is this so when are "superior(s)" are pathological liars and are the antithesis of this code that is suppose to dominate our life? Yeah, I believe that the academies were founded with "generally" good intents(sortof), Jefferson's authorization to build it was pretty sketchy considering that he adamently protested it earlier in his life, but that is neither here nor there. So as I continue, why would we be expected to follow this(I believe its intent is overall good, but I'm continuing to my point) when "some person(s)" fail to uphold a single one of the points in the various codes and we are expected to abide by their will and follow his command? Various viewpoints are welcome.
