Where truth and honesty are concerned, there are two types of people….
The first is the small minority who believe that since truth has value, it is
necessary for successful and fair human interaction and strive to use
it exclusively.
The second group is the majority who mis-use truth as a
tool to manipulate others by withholding it, modifying it, using only
part of it, or replacing it completely with something less.
To my knowledge, there are no politicians or news media in the first group.
