Telling the Truth September 15th, 2006

When we were children, we were taught to tell truth. Telling truth and being honest also become the criteria of judging a person. I do think that most people prefer to live in a world of pure truth and it is also the best wish of all kind hearted people. However, what we have to face is not the dream land. Telling truth all the time could only exist in our dreams. In another word, lies could not be avoided.

I certainly agree with this statement. However, in situations, it may happen otherwise. It depends more on one’s mental makeup and the opinion changes because of the kind of relationship he/she may have with people. If one wants a relation where he/she wants to be always in the good books of another person, he/she pretends to behave friendly and says and do things favorable to the other person. If, otherwise, he/she takes care of the other friend, he has to be himself and also correct the other person when he/she is wrong.

Leisure time is becoming an increasingly rare commodity in our society. However, this is not due to the failure of technology to improve our efficiency in our daily pursuits. In fact, improvements in technology have had a positive impact in our daily lives. We live in consumerist time savvy society that thrives on immediate gratification. Our lives depend on the convenience of technology in order that we may continue our busy lifestyles and accomplish simple everyday tasks faster and more efficiently.

I beg to differ with the speaker's contention which seems to imply that the goal of technology is not only to increase effciency but also our leisure time.
