9. White lies aren't really lying

 

"Liar" is such a harsh word. Let's just call it rationalization.

But yes. Fundamentally everybody who partakes is either delusional or else acting very rationally according to Pascal's wager. And I would assert that majority are in the latter category -- i.e. it is a good bet and it doesn't hurt anybody.

The interesting thing is that you can't demand evidence of that because you already admit that evidence is not important to you. You'll just have to accept my proposition as a matter of faith -- or not.
