In the political world, using the “lie” as normal, is accepted, but philosophically is it ever justified?

Evanescent Truth

Like snowflakes on warm roadways
    Water drops on hot frying pans
        Teardrops on a movie set
            Actuality seems destined
                To live by its chameleon nature
                    Knowing veracity's impression
                        Often creates unwanted consequences

"they" just spew the facts they were given five minutes before they were allowed to speak. They can't be lieing , Odin, they probably don't know any better ;)

I think I get your drift. Next time, I will speak less truthfully about the security at the London Olympics. and I will do it with veracity.

Actuality is a creeper. An in-your-face confronter. Unwanted consequences or not. Maybe a little singed around the edges, but . . .
Reviewed by Lily of Lough Neagh C. Dennis-Woosley 7/27/2012
Not morally, ethically, or philosophically justified. I know, I have had one too many Chameleon's in my life.

Written lovely
