Aylmer also mistakenly believes that the birthmark represents Georgiana’s moral decrepitude and spiritual flaws even though she isn’t a woman prone to sin at all.

Paterson also argues that we usually justify our lies to escape punishment, avoid disapproval, or to spare someone’s feelings. At the same time that I believe it is acceptable to lie to spare someone’s feelings, I agree that those small fibs help society function.
