Power of Public Opinion

Submitted by ub on Wed, 07/06/2011 - 11:15

What ever happened to ethics? Why do so many people resort to lies? Political figures, athletes scientists, church leaders and so many others have been accused of lying in the past. Just about everyone who chooses to lie for his or her cause eventually gets caught up in their own lies.

If history is an indicator, perjury and obstruction of justice cases appear to send ripple effects to civility. An old friend of mine tells me that as he gets older he sees society appearing to break down.

Credibility, or the lack thereof has become a popular issue these days. We see this in our courtrooms, and in our classrooms. Perhaps you are confident that you are a terrific lie detector -- you are extremely sure that you can separate the trustworthy from the slime. I can assure you that it is easier said than done. Many folks have different faces and some can be deceiving.
