Topic: Is it always essential to tell the truth, or are there circumstances in which it is better to lie?
Well, in many situations I believe it would benefit all parties if the truth was told. I believe telling the truth will always lead to better circumstances, but really can’t see the benefit towards lying.
I suppose for very rare circumstances, lying could be the better option. The “ignorance is bliss” saying really is true, and lying to someone about a certain event or such might help take away the stress off the person. However, with lying, there’s always the risk of being caught lying, and being caught lying would do worse than better.
I don’t know, I think the choice of lying or telling the truth and how much good each would do really depends on the situation. I can’t speak for everything or everyone, but personally I think telling the truth is better than lying.
