You really bring up an interesting subject, can teaching our children to be honest and to work hard for their money actually hinder their chances to become successful in a corporate environment, which is basically what the Government is too ? What are the children of the elite taught ? Private schools are a completely different experience then public schools, I was actually told by the principal of a private day school that because my child had been in public schools through grade 6 that she would be behind the other kids, which she was, even though she was bright and that she had a 50% chance of fitting in. She never really did and frankly neither did her Dad and I....the class difference was a barrier. She wanted to go back to public school for High School, which she did.
I'm not even sure if elite kids are taught to lie as much as they are taught to out smart rules and hard work. The leaders make the rules and they are the leaders. In comparison middle class kids are taught that hard work and honesty is rewarded, and it is to a point, but your probably never going to be POTUS , ultra wealthy or successful if you lack a "Killer Instinct"......"it's not Personal it's Business" ......or a Lie.....
