The Honor System

I’m intrigued by the honor system. As a former school teacher, I dealt with this issue on a daily basis. I didn’t find it hard to apply this on an individual level. Just because some kid would display dishonesty on an assignment, doesn’t mean the rest of the class suffered. But this photo is on a different plane.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If the cold cash disappears, who do you blame? Doesn’t everyone suffer, especially the owners who would then, I assume, have to have someone present. Wouldn’t this hinder the cultivating, tending, keeping? Wouldn’t this then lessen other’s enjoyment? Thankfully, there are still places in the world where this system still works and thrives, even. I wonder if this sign would work in downtown Dallas? What about rural Kansas? A suburb of Atlanta?
