The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

I wonder why, having been taught to respect other people during my formative years, parental advice in later years became 'get as much as you can out of life' and 'do whatever it takes to get ahead' - advice with an opposite focus?

When people have tried the honest way and it led them to a harsh life , they feel they have been fooled, and they should have their share of oblivious happiness. Merit is out of the window.

Maybe because when you get older, as opposed to when you were a child, it gets more important to further yourself? And people are willing to engage in shady business to get ahead, and that includes just doing whatever it takes to get ahead. I pretty sure that people can still be respectful while getting ahead, though
