Lies, they come in different forms and shape some of then are little lies, big lies or white lies. However, I believe lying, in all forms, is bad. After watching the film it made me agree even more with the fudge factor concept. When we lie we are doing something that it is considered awful, unacceptable, dishonored and incorrect. However, all of us had lied before and we still view ourselves as good people.
There are rules they must follow and if they break a rule then they get released and trust me, to be released is a bad thing. One of the main things are that they can’t lie, but I think everyone should lie occasionally, so they can protect themselves and sometimes lying is important, it just depends on the situation. In the community it isn’t a safer place to be than reality, because when everyone is the same they can’t be who they want to be. Also, you can’t feel pain but feeling pain is a good thing because if you can’t feel pain then you’re not real, well that’s what I believe. Feeling emotions are amazing and why would anyone want to take that away?
However, the person who is carrying it out still believes they can still fool the others. Ericsson calls it the “bald-faced lie”. Dismissal is the lies when one shuts down the other person’s idea or thoughts and gives them a fault believe. Ericsson states that this lie is often practiced by authority figure like parents. For instance, a child is telling his parent that the man he/she met is weird and he/she doesn’t like him.
When is it ever okay to lie? Under what circumstances is it okay to lie? In some situations, I think it is okay to say “white lies”, but before lying to someone/something he/she needs to ask himself if it is worth the lie. C.E. Ayers, once said the famous quote “ A little inaccuracy saves a world of explanation.” In my opinion, the meaning behind his reasoning is that lying is a part of our everyday life.
Why do we lie? This question isn 't whether we lie or not, because we all do, and if you disagree, you guessed it, you 're lying. This question isn 't about how good it is to sometimes lie or the urgency to, this question is about knowing the right moment to actually tell a lie where it will benefit a relationship. Lying cannot necessarily be great, but there are times when not telling the truth can actually be a good thing. It is in our human nature that we lie, we do this for many different types of reasons; parents to their children, to keep surprises and secrets and lastly, to protect themselves and others.
Baba lies, and Amir and Hassan are influenced by the deception, and Amir’s life is changed as a result. Deception leads to immense suffering and unintended consequences; Hosseini harnesses character’s internal conflicts to showcase the suffering and consequences the character’s had to cope with as a result of deception. Baba was very self-conscious about his image, and as a result he chose to lie to Amir and Hassan about their true fathers without thinking about the possible consequences. Baba thought he was justified in lying because he wanted to protect his Pashtun pride. In lying, Baba contradicted his beliefs; as he had told Amir “There is only one sin….. that is theft” (Hosseini 18).

There are many scenarios where lying is varied: parents lying to children, friends lying to friends, criminals to judges, and many others. The question arises: is lying necessary, considering how it is corrupting one of the most important aspects to our society: communication?
In the end proctor says “ let rebecca nurse go like a saint; for me it is fraud” and “it is evil and I do it.” (miller 138) This quote furthermore proves that he knows he is responsible for where he is at and for his actions. Based on this information proctor meets all the characteristics of a tragic hero and therefore is one. Proctor does have goodness in him, but he tends to keep it hidden. He has some superiority because if he didn’t he would not be so feared. His tragic flaw that he suffers from is being lustful and he even admits it.
Huck lets the two lie and cheat because allow them will give him less trouble than if he were to confront them. Since he let them continue, they put on fake plays, such as Romeo and Juliet, and lie to strangers to earn money by saying they are a “changed man because of God” during a camp meeting. Twain shows how twisted the world is by using these characters to show how being morally wrong can take you farther than being a good person. As shown previously, Twain expressed his opinion on morality in various ways in Huckleberry Finn. He showed how the stereotypes during this time were not accurate at all, and how they can be broken.
“Words cut like knives, and it’s easy to bury your relationship with the verbal cuts of a truthful tongue.” On the other hand, Jamie Turndorf mentions that telling a truth without thinking can flush relationships down the toilet, so she considers that being honest is not always a perfect policy between the relationships.
