Thoughts On Lies

    1. Honesty Is The Best Policy

    This is a very, very old saying, and yet people lie. Why?

    2. People Lie To Avoid Work, Responsibility and other Unpleasantries

    A lie can get someone off your back quickly.

    3. A Lie Is A Construct

    The truth is naturally occurring, and thus eternal like a mountain. A lie is artificial and must be maintained, like a house or structure.

    4. Lies Beget More Lies

    The original lie requires more lies to buttress it under the stresses of reality.

    5. Lying Is Not Gaslighting

    Gaslighting is a form of psychological abuse in which a person or group causes someone to question their own sanity, memories, or perception of reality. Whereas a lie is simply an untrue statement.

    6. But Lying Can Lead To Gaslighting

    Eventually, to maintain the structural integrity of a bunch of lies, it becomes necessary to combat reality itself. Doing that to another's perception of reality is gaslighting.

    7. Relationship #1 With A Pathological Liar

    One's relationship with a pathological liar can be a contentious one. You have to debate, cross-examine and inspect everything they say, which leads to arguments and 'drama'. This may appeal to some.

    8. Relationship #2 With A Pathological Liar

    Disengagement. You can be civil and engage in small talk, but never have interactions with them that involve any actual trust.

    9. End Result: The Liar Is Alienated and Isolated

    10. Conclusion: Honesty Is The Best Policy is actually a self-interest philosophy not a morality.
