In my mind it is directly tied to doing the right thing ... acting in good faith and dealing fairly in transactions and in life.  We disclose in real estate so that buyers can make fully informed decisions. Failure to disclose may end up in a lawsuit. 

And, by the way ... it is the law. We have a legal duty to disclose.
