Lying is a technique of persuasion. Sometimes it’s justified (e.g., wartime propaganda), sometimes it’s not.
Think of a time when somebody lied to you in your workplace. (Don’t think about the lies of family members, friends, celebrities, or politicians.) Describe the lie, what it was intended to accomplish, what it actually accomplished, and its other consequences. Be sure to mention, discuss, and prioritize all the factors involved; for example, the liar(s) may have had several goals, and there may have been several consequences. Offer a complete, concise, logical discussion, using proper English.
