OUTDATED CODE OF CONDUCT (Utopian and Idealistic)

A cadet will not lie, cheat, steal, or tolerate those who do

MODERN CODE OF CONDUCT (Practical and Materialistic) 

A cadet may lie, cheat, steal but will not get caught doing so and if he sees others lying, cheating or stealing he will turn a blind eye since it is none of his business

In today's world, a simple person who is sincere, honest and hardworking and obeys rules is dubbed a DUD, whereas a person who achieves  “success”  for which he does unethical things, takes short-cuts and breaks the rules but does not get caught is called SMART. 

Yes, doing wrong things to achieve “success” at any cost and being smart enough not to get caught is the “in thing” whereas being straightforward and upright is considered foolish and old-fashioned. 

Do you agree? Do Comment and tell us your views.

Also, do read this article on  CODES OF CONDUCT AND ETHICS 


What are your views on Ethics? Are old concepts relevant today? I look forward to your views, comments and feedback.

I agree but still I like to stick to the old style. I believe if you are honest and hard working, you will get the success sooner or later. Also, I am not that smart.
