If everyone started telling the truth, after the chaos of the world adjusting itself was over, the world would be a perfect place. But there is too much at stake most of the time to tell the truth.
That's a wholly different topic...

The lying is a symptom of an epidemic. If everyone could handle the truth, they would be told the truth. Retribution makes being honest a punishment. The lying will stop when people grow up and welcome it, not condemn it. Lies are only told because of closed minded people.
