A culture of liars

I have known ever since I became a teacher over 20 years ago that being lied to was just part of my daily experience. I think that was the biggest shock I had when I became a teacher. So, I have come to expect to be lied to at work. What I have noticed lately is that I am being lied to more and more outside of work. In fact I would say that we are becoming a culture of liars. Not only are more more people lying, more and more people are expecting to be lied to and accepting it. I think this will have a devastating impact on our society. How can our society survive when everyone is a liar? What does that say about us a a society when we think that lying is OK?

What do you think?
