It seems that since the great recession of 2008, lying has become more acceptable in America. Little lies, big lies, the size or significance does not matter. We currently have an American President and many members of his administration, habitually look into the camera, and lie directly to the American people. It is not only insulting, but also embarrassing, to see our leader not caring that he is talking bullshit. Of course, some politicians are slimy creatures, but President Trump and many members of his crew bring fabrication to new a subterranean sewer level.
What has happened to truth?
What has happened to dignity?
Society has many aspects that as individuals we do not like. When we grow accustomed to these unsightly characteristics we eventually bring them home. They will quickly be found at our dinner table with our children, and in our bed with our spouse. Lies will corrode society from its core.
