If torture has a chance of being unreliable then how can people be sure the information that is being acquired is accurate. When it comes down to torture people are willing to do and say anything in order for the pain to stop. According to The Economist, critics who have used and witnessed torture say that you cannot always rely on it: “Many critics of torture claim that it is ineffective as well as repugnant. Since people will say anything, just to stop the pain, the information gleaned may not be reliable” (Is Torture Ever Justified? 2007).
Self-deception and Sartre’s view of psychoanalysis on the conscious and unconscious mind tie together due to it all being a lie but seen as a reality in the host’s point of view. “To escape from these difficulties people gladly have recourse to the unconscious” (Sartre 303). These two concepts are relatable since in self-deception the person decides to lie to himself in order to escape his difficulties, but psychoanalysis takes it a different direction and instead say that the person puts it into their unconscious mind where one would have difficulties retrieving it from. “There is truth in the activities of the deceiver; if the deceived could reattach them to the situation where the deceiver establishes himself to his project of the lie…” (Sartre 303). The person does not generally forget about the lie when putting it into their unconscious mind but instead puts it aside so they would not remember about it unless it is brought up or something relatable occurs and jogs their memory of the event or the
Ericsson also states that groupthink would accompany by other lies such as omission and ignoring the plain facts, ect. Ericsson uses the Pearl Harbor as an example of the groupthink to addresses the impact or the consequences as a result of it. Out-and-Out Lies is nothing but all lie. A lie that the author is trying to make sense of it, because the person is being lying to is holding the truth. However, the person who is carrying it out still believes they can still fool the others.
In this way, he had lied selfishly. His lies benefitted only himself, allowing him to move on with his life believing he had done a good deed, when in fact he had caused the family the pain of wishing for something that never came. That day, he became a thief, not of property or jewels, but something more valuable: the truth. The truth is entitled to all who hear it, and when one is dishonest, one takes away that right (2). Critics argue that while lies can be told selfishly, the truth can also do the same.
This plays a huge part into why people lie. It often happens when individuals have a lack of problem solving skills and the capability to handle abrupt situations. From time to time, we admit to ourselves that we have done some mistakes, but we do not know how to solve them. In situations like this, we tend to lie as a quick escape instead of facing the actual problem. The truth may sure cause some conflict for the mean time, but lying instead of facing the problem would cause so much more conflict in the future.

The truth shall set you free” (“Tell Me Sweet Little Lies”). Lying has been a very prominent issue since the beginning of time, and it has progressively gotten worse since the first case thousands of years ago. To clarify, lying is the “the telling of lies, or false statements; untruthfulness:” (“Lying”). No matter what your opinion is on the morality of lying, no one can deny that they do it. Lying is always morally wrong because it is used to benefit one 's self-image, cover up one’s personal flaws, and it is used to receive some sort of personal gain.
Even though they knew the inability of the defeat device to show the desirable performance in the actual run, they have decided to proceed with the fraudulent plan due to higher cost in safety measures, neglecting the public safety.  Through their actions of pursuing the cheating system in spite of being fully aware of the discrepancy, they have breached the first section of the WFEO, which asserts that “the engineers are to refrain from fraudulent, corrupt or criminal practices.” Even if they made this decision because they had not known the threats cheating system that could bring to the public, they would still have breached the code of ethics because in that case, they failed to “keep themselves informed in order to maintain their competence” in their profession as the WFEO practice provision ethics clearly states. If they had decided to protect the environment before the company’s profitability in the first place, the scandal and its consequences could have been
I was naïve for not being able to cut my losses, and I paid the price. “At the moment it seemed like a good idea”, is what maybe goes through everyone’s mind after they come into their senses from our failed attempts in Escalation of Commitment. Persistence is not always a good thing, and it could lead people into their own demise. I learned that you shouldn’t ignore the subtle signs that are given to you, whether to continue trying a little bit more, or quit while you are
