A confession brought about by a lack of alternatives and a desire for revenge, does not.
Landis manned up in the same way a child does when they get caught with their hand in a cookie jar. The game is up and it's a survival mechanism.
A confession does not necessarily equate to honesty.
Just so I understand you're now talking about a "confession" and not "honesty".
I'll say it again. Honesty is honesty no matter how its conducted.
If Armstrong admitted then maybe we can get the other side of the story but unfortunately he hasn't "confessed" as yet nor has he been "honest" Two strikes for him!
Your analogy with a child with hand caught in the cookie jar is silly. I teach my children honesty regardless of the circumstances. I don't rate it on how they did or under what circumstances. I ask them to be honest and true. Sometimes it comes out a little later than I'd like but ultimately I ask that they find that point.
Often honesty is a journey. Its takes time to reach that point. Its not always instant.
Why do you have to make something so complex out of something simple as "honesty".
It knows no bounds.
