If you choose to be dishonest, then your individuality will be limited by external sources, who will hold you accountable for said dishonesty. Remember, being dishonest or honest, always begins with choice. Each choice will lead to an action. That action will have a reaction, consequence and accountability, regardless of whether or not, positive or negative. You, as a person, are not trusted to be honest.
Just in case you didn't know- there happens to be an ancient perception, which continues on, even as you read and that perception is "humankind must be forced(made) to answer to a higher authority, otherwise chaos would ensue". You cannot be trusted to do what is right or to be good enough to be your own authority.
It was realized through dishonesty that you would be unable to remain honest with yourself and have an inner ability to hold yourself accountable for your own actions. Which is the primary reason for the the "god" concept and government authority. I would suggest you heed the words here and accept that your character must be molded by you, it must be improved upon, so you can truly claim the freedom you want.
Thank you for your time
