Everyones heard the tale of the Boy who cried Wolf right? Sure, shepherd boy thinks he’s
funny, makes a fuss about imaginary wolfs, villagers come running – no wolf. Then when wolfs actually do come, he yells and screams, yet villagers weren’t about to play his game again, his sheep get nailed by the wolves. Moral of the story. Liars are not believed even when they tell the truth The reasons people are less than truthful are many, they do it because they lack the courage to say what they think, they do it because they are comfortable in their pretensions, and they do it because they are insecure.
I spent a long time asking myself why should people be straight up, what moral chains are there? It’s to easy to say because society expects it, or because history has presented its heroes as paragons of virtue. No, I believe the reason to be much more selfish, the need for people to be straight-up is that individually you become better people for it. But why? Why would you be a better person for speaking the truth? If you leave behind all the morality, all the chains of ethics, all the issues of virtue. What is it? If truth was an object or feeling how would you describe it? Is it a goal to strive for? A gut feeling? An instinct to pass on your interpretation of events without deviation? Who knows exactly? All I know is that I hold it high, and I refuse to abnegate this belief for anyone, better yet I expect people to follow suit. Never am I more disconcerted than if someone I trust has lied to me, to my face, how dare they? Why do we feel this way? because we just do?…Neh.. To easy, because society demands that we do? No, I don’t feel bad if someone’s lied to me because society says they shouldn’t. No, I feel bad because I’ve been betrayed. I trusted them to be straight with me and they weren’t. I trusted them to share the same set of beliefs that I do, and they didn’t.Its SOOOO much worse when your telling the honest to God truth,and you arent being taken seriously.DEAR GOD,im almost CERTAIN bullets dont hurt as much.
Christian Morgan English 112 Dr. Levinson-Brubaker 11 December 2000 Why Are We Afraid of Them? : An Explanation of Man's Fear of Wolves Wolf! What is the first thought that enters one's mind upon the utterance of that word? More than likely it is the image of a hairy, razor-sharp toothed beast awaiting the thrill of its next merciless kill. Unfortunately, this stereotypical image has been embalmed ...
The only way I can expect that of them is if I have a sure fire justification that my way is right…but I don’t so where am I? Who knows? Is honesty some common unspoken societal belief? Or spawned solely of a religious base? Or are people only honest because they fear retribution? Are they better people for speaking it out of fear, and not obligation? The questions have been answered using words like nobility, integrity, and virtue. Yet none of them fit, none of them completely explain why people owe it to each other to be honest. This is because they don’t owe anything to each other, they owe it to themselves. People that lie go against the grain, they are frowned upon and rightly so. Deep inside everyone knows that if they lie its wrong, a little fib here, embellishment there, whats the harm?
WHATS THE HARM???!!!! Im writing this note because a little while ago,someone said something that really jarred me. ”EVERYBODY LIES” he said.It hit me like a ton of bricks. WHATS THE HARM????!! Imagine living in a world where everyone you know and everyone you cared about was so busy telling you half truths and falsehoods that at the end of the day you sit down and realize that you dont know them at all.Imagine being so wrapped up in a world full of lies that you couldnt tell if that sister you love so dearly is being honest with you.That the person you worked with everyday was trying his or her best to deceive you.Imagine being in a relationship and KNOWING,not suspecting,KNOWING that your partner is constantly filling your ears up with SO MUCH BULLSHIT (pls excuse the language) that you dont know why it is your even in the same room with them anymore.Imagine living your entire life like that,EVERY SINGLE DAY.Do i really need to explain what the harm would be in that?……………………………………………………………………Didnt think so.

EHEM-EHEM, bottom line:
Morality consists solely in the courage of making a choice. Wickedness is always easier than virtue, for it takes a short cut to everything. But over time you learn, you can’t make wrong work.
There are always two choices, two paths to take. One is easy. And your only reward is that it’s easy. You cannot do wrong without suffering wrong.
Work joyfully and peacefully, knowing that right thoughts and right efforts will inevitably bring about right results.
You can never lose anything that really belongs to you, and you can’t keep that which belongs to someone else.
You always experience the consequences of your own acts. If your acts are right, you’ll get good consequences; if not, you’ll suffer for it. Its just that simple.
Sooner or later everyone sits down to a banquet of consequences. Let us all work to make sure that all our individual banquets are tasteful.
