Honor System


When you ride the bullet train in Korea, it is done on the honor system. That means there are no conductors checking if you have a ticket. They just assume everyone riding the train has bought a ticket like they should as good citizens. Can you imagine something like that in the United States? No way. No one tries to beat the system in Korea. They are very impressive people. I should also add that the ride I took was about 50 bucks each way. Think about that.

Russians would laugh about that strange people long and loud.

Did you ever think maybe it's strange to live among people who are all corrupt. I think it's the Koreans who are laughing at the Russians.

Agree. I was ironic. Sometimes I wonder if our politicians and others really believe they will live forever and never pay back.
Different levels of consciousness, here and in Korea.
