Can you trust the general public in 2012?

“Honesty is for the most part less profitable than dishonesty.” – Plato

While walking through St Katherine Docks I found a bus. Not just any bus, a bus that contained an unattended shop. That’s right, it was a large scale honesty shop.

Now I remember as a kid, having an honesty box when selling avocrados on the roadside in Waihi. The system wasnt perfect then, with unscrupulous individuals nicking the goods while I was off at the beach. So I do wonder how the system works on a larger scale and in a big city.

But I do love the attempt, and the goods on board were very cool.

    I think you can probably trust the British public with something like this, you just can’t trust them to vote in TV talent shows, or look at themselves when criticising those producing the material they consume. x
