Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Sometimes it is better not to tell the truth. Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.
In most cases, no one does not like to tell a lie, and everyone considers truth moral. Indeed, we have to be careful about our speech and try to not tell a lie as much as we can. But there are circumstances, mostly unpleasant. but they compel us to reveal a fact or an idea that is not true. So, in my idea, to avoid drastic consequences, sometimes we could avoid disclosing a fact. To make it clear, I will explore my reasons in the following paragraphs. To begin with, there are some events that describing for an audience is not easy, and it would make them shocked. So, in this case, avoiding revealing is a logical option versus disclosing it directly. For example, When I was a child, my grandfather passed away. At first, everybody was aware of this circumstance except my grandmother because she was suffering from several diseases. She’s doctor told us; that we cannot tell him the truth because it has a faithful result for her. So, this example shows, that even though we did not tell her the truth and it was an unwanted decision, we had to. Furthermore, also there are some cases in which telling a lie could consider a moral attribute. To make it understandable, For example, assume we are captivated by an enemy, and he tries to extract vital information from us to use that information in order to hurt us. Of course, in these situations avoiding to tell a truth could consider a moral character, and no one will interrogate us because of the lie. As a result, we save our country from huge damage, and it shows telling a lie could be beneficial. To conclude, I Indicated two reasons to illustrate why not telling the truth sometimes is logical. Firstly, For the situations where we want to tell the truth but the circumstance desire to tell it gradually. Secondly, sometimes we must not tell the truth in order to save others safe. So, I agree sometimes it is better not to tell the truth.
