the lie.

The lie.
By Joshua Sim

To lie is not to make an alternative claim on truth
There can be no truth in this world.
But that never necessitates you lying.
Lying doesn’t require the truth.

To lie is to cheat on one’s interaction with another.
It is political.
When you lie you usurp the power in a relationship
by not allowing the other person to react to context.

When you lie you manipulate.

There can be no truth in this world.
But that never necessitates you lying.
Lying doesn’t require the truth.

 
Bet you never saw it that way! But then what constitutes not lying then? Anyway this is really good. :D

  1. Did you watch the Golden Compass?
    I love the movie.
    It says so much in so little.

  2. i just watched! it’s good! but…as in the picture is good but the story isn’t well elaborated in the movie. i guess they have a lot to squeeze in abt 3h. like if you dont go read the book or search online, u wont know exactly what dust is. but i like how they made it a complex thing, both sides can actually justify the good of their position
