Are you an honest person? We are surrounded by falsehoods, exaggerations, denial, and sarcasm; that affect our judgment and shape our actions for better and worse. We must first examine what are lies, how are they used and viewed in society, and why do we lie. Is lying ethical, evil, necessary, or avoidable? Together we will explore lying and try to find the truest, most honest answer.
This event is free to attend, though RSVPs encouraged. More information here.
