Lying an Art?

In today’s world most of the feedback we get is from some entity trying to persuade us to take an action to benefit something they want. Our perceptions of the world come from our senses and feedback of other powers we are supposed to trust. ┬áIn the long run it is only our experience and evidence that weed out reality from manipulation.

Many children and adults never learn when people are lying to them or telling them things to manipulated their emotions. Most want their emotions manipulated and do not want reality, they want to feel as it is entertainment.

Just think how the world would be different if everything we perceived was true. The problems would all have clear solutions and there would not be misunderstandings. Would that cut down on poverty and crime?
