The only one true and (sadly) missing Commandment: YOU SHALL NOT LIE !
For the record: The term “Lie” includes actions like deception, omission, half-truth, false framing, undisclosed clauses, etc.; for sure !
That’s All – It’s that easy !
And, No, the 9th commandment (In Luther’s terms it’s the 8th commandment) about bearing false witness to your fellow man doesn’t say this !
You simply should Not lie – Never – Never Ever, not “about” others and not to others and not even to yourself – that’s in fact where all the evil always starts.
The rest of the 10 commandments is either Bullshit and Falsehood or (the sensible ones) already included in the task to Not Lie !
Nobody would steal and rape, kill and plunder and deceive and secretly start wars or go after the wife of another man – if he/she would adhere to the rule of not lying, right ?
It’s obvious ; is it not ?
No war ever started with one party declaring : ” We are power-hungry and so now we come and take away what is yours !”
No, never – it’s always under the pretext of a false flag event , a lie, a distortion of reality, a false narrative, claims and media propaganda and such. Always it is “needed” to twist reality in such a way that the evil criminal liar can blame all the guilt on the other one – the (more or less) innocent victim – Always !
Similarly, no man ever goes to another man and says: ” I gonna fuck your wife or steal your house or deceive you via this contract or sub-prime-mortgage or gonna murder this or that guy or any other evil action !”
Sure, because then the crime wouldn’t really work out – it is only working in combination with the lie.
Nope – it simple works like that – the criminal and evil one always includes the lie into his crimes – without that lie (in a civilization where everybody adheres to the law/taboo of not lying) nobody would dare to commit these evils – because it is clear that the law, the public opinion and thus the entire force of mankind would stand against the evil, criminal liar and they wouldn’t dare to commit the evil deed.
At least 99% of it – which is fairly a great number for a start, is it not ?
Now, we partly have some kind of laws that will punish you for lying – But only in very specific cases and NOT ON A GENERAL BASIS !
So, if you lie in court and they catch you, you will be punished; although mostly the punishment is ridiculous compared to the damage done by it and all of the rest of the life in society they all can lie without any consequences.
Just look at all the media and politicians and scientific studies and public relations, mega corporations and Intelligence agencies reports and NGO reports of the like of “The White Helmets” and their Own False Flag activities, the ridiculously WRONG climate models (carbon dioxide human induced global warming which is wrong on so many levels !) ON PURPOSE and so much more:
All without legal & lawful consequences – but with tremendous, dire and evil consequences for the People, Earth and Mankind and Society at large.
In fact the lie has eaten itself to such deep levels into our societies that we have reached a point where the Judicial System and Courts and Attorneys and Judges are Liars themselves !
Yes – I say it :
Our civilization is Rechtsbankrott – Legal/Lawful bankruptcy or Bankruptcy of Law !
The sad but logical consequence of many centuries of tolerated lying !
Think about it !
How could one ever expect a sane and peaceful world like that – it’s impossible !
So, let’s get moving and let’s get it done – it will be fun ; we just have to start it !
PS: And please keep your childish examples of “So, would you not lie, if the bad fascist slavemaster would come and ask you to betray your fellow men – is it not better to lie in such situations?”
That is a stupid and theoretical question for silly idiotic theoretical pseudo-intellectual scholars to muse about like the idiots who are discussing for centuries how many angels you can place on the peak of a needle.
If someone is threatening your life and you have no option of saying “No” without heavy and probably lethal/violent consequences it is NO LIE but self-defence, stupid.
In the same sense you are not talking about “what a lovely thing it is to make love with a beautiful woman” when she has not had the right to say “No” but was forced to make love.
We call that RAPE, right?
