Lies and Truth

There are all forms of honesty, and there are all forms of lies. It’s a discriminating person indeed that can steer a wise course among them all. We live in a time in which “spin” is a form of lie, but it’s also a form of truth. Beware the person who can sprinkle a lie with just enough truth to make you believe the lie. That’s what I believe E.W. Howe would have meant in considering today’s public discourse.

You needn’t love your enemy, but if you refrain from telling lies about him, you are doing well enough.

~ E. W. Howe ~
