Someone who disagrees might say that it is not okay to do that(to lie) and that it is not okay. Kant might say that lying is never justified or immortal. Some people would say that if you lie then you can ruin some relationships and friendships. What is wrong with this argument?What is wrong with this argument is that many people would not get evidence or proof that lying is wrong because most people lie and that means that they were taught to lie and that means that their parent or parents that that it was okay to lie.

What Is Right About Having Children? Some philosophers hold that having children is impermissible under any circumstances, call this view global anti-natalism. Among these philosophers, David Benatar (2006) introduces a famous asymmetry argument on individuals’ evaluation of pain, pleasure, absence of pain and absence of pleasure (30-31). Based on this argument, Benatar believes, “Being brought into existence is not a benefit but always a harm” (28); thus global anti-natalism (i.e. it is always wrong to have children).
According to Mill, lying is the worst thing an individual can do. In the state of lying it weakens a person ability to the the truth, the person is incapable of telling the truth in the future. At most time lying usually is morally wrong because it decreases overall happiness in the society.

For example it is reasonable to lie if you mother was in danger, you would lie in order to save her life, and in doing so one is outweighing the claim of justice
Cheating is something that is viewed differently by each person. Typically it is viewed as dishonest, untrustworthy, even immoral. The world around us has put a spin on cheating. The world tends to let most cheaters slip by (for example, Tom Brady in the Superbowl "deflate-gate" scandal), while some cheaters (Lance Armstrong) are disgraced, never to be seen in their chosen field again. Even as the world 's viewpoint on cheating may be evolving, mine stays the same: cheating is always wrong.
Within the context of the Ministry of Love, there is a room called Room 101 that holds a person’s deepest fears. Of it, Winston’s chief torturer O’Brien explains, “The worst thing in the world … varies from individual to individual” (283). Room 101, the most vital part of the Ministry of Love’s correction, is a changing object that helps the Party produce a perfectly conformed society. Even though conformity is one common idea, it also varies among people. For Winston, it was betraying his illicit lover Julia: “The one thing that matters is that we shouldn’t betray one another” (Orwell 166).
Guilt creates inner conflict as well as conflict within relationships and across generations which is seen as destructive. An example of guilt’s destructive capability is the damage that Michael’s guilt over Hanna inflicts on him. Michael’s resulting decision is to “never to take guilt upon myself or feel guilty, never again to love anyone whom it would hurt to lose” which makes him hard-hearted, sabotaging his relationships with others. Even though guilt can be destructive it also encourages people to take responsibility for their actions, to recognize their mistakes and wrongdoings, and to avoid them in the future. For example, the collective guilt that Michael’s generation inherits from the Holocaust emboldens them to accept their parent generations mistakes, know not to follow in their footsteps and condemn Nazi war

The seventh rule in the Ten Commandment in Christianity quotes that Thou shall not commit adultery from the Bible explains that the act of adultery is given a poor and immoral outlook by society, as it is known that having an affair is a sinful act, during a couple’s unity. However, it is well known that man and woman still commit this immoral act. Provided that, the movie "Match Point" directed by Woody Allen, conveys an overall message that one 's greed results in their unfortunate outcome. It is evident through Chris Wilton 's actions that he constantly wants more in life. Nonetheless, one is restricted from living a peaceful life as he or she tries to devote time to fulfill his desires.
So, it is never justified to use utilitarian morality in decision making.” (Source D). There have been many cases of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in people who have been subjected to torture, but beside the effects of the torture is the view we are given off when we torture a human being for only information. It makes our country look bad and the way we do things

Have you ever felt bad or good about a lie you told your friends or family members? Well in the article “It 's the truth: Americans Conflicted About Lying”, the author NBC News mentions that Americans say that lying is ok but It has to be a white lie. The topic sentence here is that It 's ok to lie, but It could only be a minor lie. A white lie is a lie where it doesn 't harm or lose others dignity. Apparently white lies are an acceptable, even necessary part of many lives even though we dislike the idea of lying.
Is lying that big of a deal? When it comes to lying everyone will argue that it 's either bad or good depending on the situation. One major question being asked is "Is it better to lie to get out of trouble than to tell the truth?" I am a strong advocate when it comes to lying to protect yourself from dangers and trouble. Of course, everything depends on certain situations, but if permitted, like the common phrase goes "gotta do what you gotta do" and if that means lying to save your ass then I say why not.
