Dishonesty Ethics Blog #5

“The discipline of the written word punishes both stupidity and dishonesty.”

– John Steinbeck quotes (U.S. novelist and Nobel Prize winner for literature, 1902-1968)

 

What is dishonesty?

Dishonesty is a word which, in common usage, may be defined as the act or to act without honesty. It is used to describe a lack of probity, cheating  , lying or being deliberately deceptive or a lack in integrity, knavishness, perfidiosity, corruption or treacherousness. It is used about charlatanism and quacks.

 

Who is it you're being dishonest to when you lie, and who suffers the punishments from which these actions bring about?
