Judas wasn't fashionably late. And, the  account of thre knight's very interesting.

I am grateful for your compliment and 5-star rating.  I think it is the first time I ever got one of those!  Sadly, if I was a college professor,  the liberal colleges of today would fire me and condemn me,  for exposing one of their liberal forefathers as a dangerous idiot.

Don't worry about your exaggerations.  I am quite sure that you exaggerations are well-justified,  and I am also sure that when you decide to withhold information from certain persons,  that is also well-justified.  Information is power,  and some persons in our lives cannot be trusted with some information.  Kant did not directly address the withholding of information,  but I did,  in my rebuke of his absurd position of telling a murderer the truth.  Cheers

Re: TAPS

I did come back and read it.  All I can say is yes I do have to deal with this every day of my life because I am a person prone to exaggeration which involves lots of little white lies which are, after all, lies.

Thanks, those are excellent examples.  If Kant had his way, there would be no confidentiality, no privacy between a patient and doctor, or between a priest and a confessioner.  There would be no state secrets, no military secrets.  Our enemies would know all that we know, and how to defeat us.  I cannot imagine such a world, or how Herr Kant thought it was a good idea.

This is your interest. I can only think of the same oath of confidentiality, Hippocratic oath , and that of the clergy. Certainly it's soul searching. I know that in films and stories good must conquer evil. So, there are two sides. However, murder's  real mean and meaner than anything.

I am blessed and honored that you want to read this post.  So sorry to hear about your rough nignt with nightmares.  This post is mainly about a famous conflict between two philosophers, concerning the subject of lying.  Pretty simple, really.  Something we all have to deal with almost every day.

The title to this post sounds like something I'm going to have trouble with getting through, but I'm going to give it a try.   Woke up with a headache after having nightmares all night.  LOL
