The Truth Will Set You Free!
Today I will be your guide as we embark on a quest of a lifetime, This journey begins First by Presenting a Kantian argument that lying is never permissible. After the presentation of such an argument I will begin to Revise the thesis, in the light of some objections by other philosophers , as well as my own personal opinion on this one philosophical argument and how it works. Kant presents two arguments why to never lie, First: we could not will a Universal law that allows us to lie, such a law would be self defeating(Book pg-130), Second: ”To be
truthful. . . in all deliberations , therefore is a sacred and absolutely commanding degree of reason, limited by no expectancy.”(Book Pg-131) The main discussion Through-out this debate will be understanding these two arguments and learning to applying them while we explore multiple scenarios. The ability to grasp the concepts of laws and Insistence on absolute rules takes a bold understanding and many will fall short of this sacred reasoning when confronted with “Common sense” for this concept is ultimately misleading it even goes as far as saying some lies are harmless. There are no such thing as what we call “White Lie”, because the ulterior motive for which these arise do not account for every expendance possible. Telling the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth takes a person with an impeccable capability this person must relieve themselves of all problem that occur from such honest, so help them God that they can forgive themselves.

For if you tell a Lie and the following events that happen are negative, you shall forever bear the weight of the consequences you set in motion. So the next time you tell a lie you're responsible for it!
