    Default The Truth!

    I'd love to make it illegal to lie, prevaricate, obfuscate, exaggerate or mislead in any way.

    Can you imagine how our politicians and public bodies would cope with that? And advertisers and manufacturers would have to do a major rethink with hype and fancy terms being banned.

    For instance, does the average female shopper actually know why 'Ginkgo Biloba' is a good thing in cosmetics and shampoos? Of course not, it's misleading hype.

    And when it comes to cars and fuels, well there's a whole quagmire of advertising tripe!

    You could spend a lifetime digging out all the dishonesty.

    I can't see a real downside to the truth though .
    Conspiracy theories are only perpetuated because people go looking for them!

    I totally agree!

    Didn’t Jim Carey make a comedy film about this?

    The HiFi industry would go bust overnight if they told the truth.

    White lies are told by those who think others can't handle the truth.

    I can't think of any situation where I'd want to be lied to.

    In the case of a dying child.....maybe.

    Holland & Barrett is full of stuff like that - expensive extracts and oils etc., which probably do very little good and possibly, if used too much, will do harm.

    No you didn't - I was the producer of the film, so would know.

    I personally can't be doing with people who lie, I have no time for them. Being truthful is so easy, doesn't require any training, and makes life so much less complicated.
