Why a liar never wins.
A liar tells a lie. He then has to cover his lie in his mind with another lie should anyone ever discover or question his first lie. When his first lie is discovered and questioned, he then lies again and now has to create a third lie in his mind to cover up his second lie created to hide the first one. This is a multiplication of lies which become so many, that errors begin to pile up and expose the liar by the mere fact he cannot remember all the previous lies he made up to cover up the first one.
This is something children will benefit from learning at an early age, or it may never be learned as we are now witnessing in the self-incriminating behaviors of liars in media, politics, formerly trusted institutions and government bureaucracies the planet over. Once one tells a lie, the true "self" becomes covered in shadow. To the degree one lies to others is to the exact degree one lies to himself. Nature is a perfect mirror of truth. It is inescapable. Thus trust comes from truth. Without truth, no trust. And one who cannot trust in himself is as far away from truth as it gets. Thus, nobody trusts a liar once the liar is exposed, nor should they.
Liars create a path of destruction for those who are foolish enough to believe their lies. Those who see their lies are immune because they know the truth. The whole of lying is destructive because nowhere in this universe of truth has anything in nature ever been built upon even a single lie. There is no lie in Nature. Nature is true. That’s why it has unceasing continuity. We are all learning a great universal lesson on lying and the destruction that it brings.
