Perhaps it is the training we give our children in materialism. Reward and punishment is not the way to treat humans. You train animals with the Skinner/Pavlov psychological manipulation. Humans need reasons and he who has the most toys is not the winner of life.
Obeying the law because you might get caught is not a good reason for being a moral and ethical person.
