The article starts with Stephanie’s description of one particularly bad day she experienced and how the events of that day made her feel pressured to lie. After describing her 4 lies, then ticking off the reasoning’s for them; she then goes on to say that she does not feel guilty for lying and why. It leaves the reader wondering if there is no guilt felt why then the explanations? Why not just say “I lied. Here is when, how and how many times.” In the very next paragraph the author starts by saying “We lie, we all do.
Similarly ones if the lying is mixed with trust then a threat against trust of any relation are produced. According to Mazur, critics of utilitarianism claim, people usually fail to estimate the harms of lying brought to society (Mazur).For instance, a politician falsely promising the people to improve the conditions of the country and doctor who provides wrong statement to the patient that he will recover, just to avoid any kind of depression for him, apparently they achieved overall benefit. But what if the deceits are learned by people? In addition to this, children try to hide things from their parents which they know their parents would not accept. But after getting some kind of intimation parents are forced to observe their children in their every activity.
This statement can be debated. Many people tell lies to protect others, not get ourselves in trouble, and even for our own self benefit. These topics will be discussed and proven that being truthful isn’t always the right thing to do.”Like the sun”, and “The Censors” by R.K Narayan and Luisa Valenzuela, both show that by not telling the truth, it may sometimes benefit the society in the future. To begin with, “Like the sun” and “The Censors” show that lying may benefit us in the future. Protecting others is one reason people lie.
For example, there are many cases in the first several stories of Arabian Nights when women are disloyal and evil, but there are also stories about the wrong of men. This is because Shahrazad wanted to balance human wrong and she attempts to expose the wrongs of both sexes equally. According to feminism, the women's and men's rights are equal. So, she tried to explain that women can also make mistakes as men and it is not right that they take into account only women's mistakes (Smith, 1).
Why We Lie There are many reasons why people lie. Some have ulterior motives while others plainly lie with the sole intention of deceiving someone. In Ericson’s essay “ The Ways We Lie” she lists several examples of the different kinds of ways people lie, like innocent white lies. She also explains the different ways people deceive, such as ignoring the plain facts and leaving out major points to the story. When I read “ The Ways We Lie” it made me think of all the lies I produce without even thinking twice about the effects my lies have on people.
Alexa Neumann Everyone is Selfish Humans are mysterious creatures. We do things that sometimes even ourselves cannot understand. It baffles me that as a species, we seem to be okay with not knowing why we do the things we do. Surely some people do try to break down human nature, such as psychologists and behaviorists and such. But our society as a whole seems to not care about how we as humans act towered each other.
Lots of women have been describing these injunctions as prejudiced as they are not able to apply for them. The law court say that it is usually only men that need to hide themselves, and that they are more likely to be able to pay for them. If word gets out that someone has been granted an injunction, the editor of the newspaper will be prosecuted. Is it right that celebrities, editors and politicians are granted super injunctions as acts of secrecy? Well, yes it is.
Tell The Truth… Friedrich Nietzsche once said, “Belief in the truth commences with the doubting of all those “truths” we once believed.” This quote talks about how we hear so many lies that when it comes to the real truth we just don’t believe it anymore. In two particular stories they talk about the same thing. Not only do they talk about telling the truth they also talk about how it can affect us and others. In the story “Like the Sun” by R.K Narayan and in the poem “Tell the Truth but tell it Slant-“by Emily Dickinson are both similar and different in many ways, by having consequences or foreshadowing what’s going to happen, how some people say it, and the way people handle it. In the dictionary consequences is, “An act or instance of following something as an effect, result, or outcome.” In like the sun, Sekar tells the truth but he tells it how it is and that gives him a bad outcome.
Politics, Religion and Media are true forms of deception. Deception is differed from individual to individual, for some people deception has different theories and different measures, like in a relationship when one partner is cheating on other for one person it might prove to be a deception but for other one this is just might not wrong. Well we face so many emotional deceptions during our lifetime, which has no material value and cannot be framed as artful deceptive in nature. Deception has different measure and different levels based on individual. The deception or forge or fraud stories which we know are meant to be known for us, the people who did it they want us to know about their artful intelligence worldwide.
Helene Cioux: The Laugh of the Medusa The Laugh of the Medusa is about how women shouldn’t be afraid to express themselves through literature. The article is written from a feminist’s point of view. According to the article, women are afraid to write in a world that is controlled by men. I chose a paragraph from the article to summarize: “Men have committed the greatest crime against women. Insidiously, violently, they have led them to hate women, to be their own enemies, to mobilize their immense strength against themselves, to be the executants of their virile needs.
