Abstract

Extract:

Everyone lies at some point in life, either to protect himself or to protect others. In some instances, these untruths may be referred to as "white lies”--when they are harmless, perhaps beneficial to those around us, and contribute to the greater good. Under other circumstances, a lie may be an utter betrayal of personal or professional commitments, intended to conceal an abuse of power, an inappropriate consideration or relationship, or a sexual infidelity. Lying is not, by itself, a crime, unless it occurs under a certain set of circumstances prohibited by law.
