Today, I was writing a letter to Experian about my credit rating. Most of us lie a little. Some of us lie a lot. But we all know why people do it ... to cover up a shortcoming, to make us look good in the moment. When a person lies, somebody always gets hurt. The question is not whether or not lying is right or wrong. The question is not whether or not to harm. We will, inevitably, cause harm on this earth to other lifeforms. When we boil vegetables, we kill off the bacteria inside them. The question is what lifeforms are we harming? Are we creating a world in which harming others is an acceptalble solution? I choose to tread lightly.
