Telling lies for a better world?
 
 


Lies have a bad reputation. Telling the truth is normally considered to be a good thing. One conventional view of lying is that it is bad in itself and should be avoided at all costs. Another conventional view is that the consequences of lying are often bad, so lying should be avoided except in extreme circumstances. In the past two decades, though, a number of authors have challenged conventional wisdom, arguing that lying is not as bad as normally thought and that a number of other beliefs about lying are misunderstood. A well-known study even shows that an ordinary person tells three lies every ten minutes.


So what is your opinion of telling lies? How is your relationship with them? What do you do when being lied to? And more importantly, when and how do you choose to lie?


Please write your view on the topic with about 300 words. You can add a title by yourself.
