White lie is still a lie
Ever since the early age, we have taught that lying is wrong and hurts people including ourselves. Moreover, we also have educated that it is better to accept the consequences of my actions than to lie. However, the more we grow up, the more we know about using of lying because telling the truth cannot always solve the problem. From my opinion of view, some lying is adequate, some is not. It rest on upon what purposes that make people tell lies.
A white lie is supposedly one which is done for someone's good and which harms no one. There’s no such thing. The moral view that allows people to think that lies can be harmless is one which counts the self as nothing morally interesting.
The first point to note is that although telling lie is easy to get things in the short period of time, it will create a bad impression on the next generation as well as it does not give any benefit on long way. For example, if you tell some lies to the children such as smoking doesn't effect on everyone around, what will they learn in their future? It is unsafe for us too aware of wrong way because of mature. Another point I would like to mention is that if we always cheat others many times, one day our lie will befall upon us and will lose prestige in our relationships. The story telling about a shepherd rearing his sheep is typical example. He cheats residents many times that there was wolf on the mountain. When they ran to save him but found no wolf, they became angry with him. And then when the wolf really came, no one troubled him. Lastly, the wolf attacked his sheep and also killed him. It was due to his own wickedness that he got the kill.
A 'perfect world' is usually imagined as a world with no lies, but to many people's disappointment, the world can never be perfect. This is because the majority of the people in the world has lied or will lie at one point in their life, even...
