Abstract

The story may or may not be apocryphal but we all seem to have heard how George Washington, as a boy, had a beating off his father when he told the truth about the fate of the family cherry tree: “Father, I cannot tell a lie. I did it with my little hatchet” The moral of the story is, of course, that telling the truth is imperative whatever the consequences. Truth is good and therefore lies are bad - quite clear, black and white - but is it? Can a lie bring about a good result?
