Everybody does it

from OLDaily - commenting on the referenced article
Dishonesty was something to be
ashamed of. Today, people look at their heroes, their
leaders, their models - and they see nothing but cheating.
"It's a silent conspiracy creating the disease of low
expectations: 'Well, we can't really expect people to be
honest anymore.'" At the bottom of the article there's a
list, "Top 5 Ways to Curb Cheating." Not on that list is
something like, "have business leaders and politicians and
role models who don't lie, steal and cheat." Bringing
honour back into society begins with ourselves, not
lecturing the kids.
I can and do expect students to be honest. Is that idealistic?
