It is true for Bruno, because he 's pretending to be a jew to go with Shmuel. But no body ever told him anything about it, so he really doeesnt know any better. His father wears tht uniform and thinks he 's "all that", and he know 's what he 's doing, and that "it 's for the greater good" (even though it is possibly one of the worst things to happen in history, so i guess its true for him too). All throughout the book people dress up and try to be that person, pretending to be someone else. But they really are all making the wrong choices, the wrong desicisons, but they have no-idea what they are doing is going to scare our world
Don Pedro starts to trust his brother because he says he will no longer be the bad man he once was, and all Don John did was lie. Lies and deception are shown in more ways than one. Don John shows it more in his personality and the way he speaks then actually doing the lie. When he lies and bad things happen, everyone just knows who to blame. The foil characters Don Pedro and Don John suggest that the things that motivate people to lie are because sometimes people think that lying is the only way to fix problems or make problems.

Amir wondered if Hassan had made up his dream merely to solace him. He felt somewhat better, and they began to fly their kite. One blue kite specifically cuts a lot of its competitors, and Amir kept his eye onto it.
It is entirely true that Montresor was getting revenge against Fortunato for the insults that he has given him. However, the problem is that, we the audience do not know to what extend the insults were and how bad were they. We are left to wonder if the insults were entirely just horse play which usually occurs between two friends, or were they actually insults being addressed towards Montresor and his family. Some might even argue that he was insane, and the fact is that Montresor was not really on his death bed. But that he was actually gleaming and he was boosting his crime to somebody because he felt proud of the crime that he committed.
Looking back the reader might discover an astonishing thing, that Oedipus had to face more pain due to his blindness than Teiresias even though Teiresias has been blind from birth. Maybe Sophocles is trying to tell the reader that its better to be blind and to be able to see the truth than being blind to the truth even after having perfect eyes.

The word "see" can be used in both contexts here.

They see him this way because of the MASK he wears: as a “gentleMAN from sole to crown” (Robinson 3).
