Beware of blatant liars in human society!

According to circumstances and occasions, we might tell white lies among us, but white lies do not hurt the feelings of anybody. The blatant lie is told with no sense of shame. Blatant liars are the ones who do not comply the norms of human dignity and decency or ignore the moral values or ethical teachings of religions. The statement of the blatant liars always deviates from or perverts the truth. The blatant liars are in the habit of breaking their promises, pledge and commitment and hiding their malpractice. Their intent is to take opportunities for their personal gains dishonestly, selfishly and unjustly. They usually tell lies blatantly in response to the questions about the truth asked by the general public. In other words, blatant liars respond with falsehood to the query concerning political situation in the society. Some administrators or authorities concerned tell lies blatantly in order to hide the truth and deceive the public in some society. This means that they do not frankly or cordially tell what is bad or weak in handling or performing public services. Telling lies is used as their defensive shield or tool whenever they are accused of political abuse or power abuse. Moreover, they try to conceal their mismanagement and inefficiency as well. If the certain government or politicians or authorities concerned tell a pack of lies, the majority of people will be disappointed. As a result, people will not trust them whatever they say or promise in future. The blatant liars are extremely dangerous for the honest people who love integrity and truth. As for the blatant liars, they do not want to see or hear or face the truth. Normally, that sort of behavior or practice is exercised by dictators or despots in the world. Usually, the totalitarian regimes do not allow their lackeys or followers or minions to tell the true situations or true news about the country such as politics, social welfare, military services, economy, the expenditure of public funds and public wish. They never ever tell the truth pertaining to people’s wish while they are in power. Most importantly, they know that they need to hide their misdeeds, malpractice, biases and misconducts. The totalitarian regimes do not dare to have some interviews with foreign journalists as they are scared of potential questions about human rights, civil rights, and freedom of speech, freedom of press and political rights. In fact, they hate to hear these topics in interview as they are intoxicating with the state power that they have seized without the assent of the vast majority of people concerned. So, they protect their power by making unjust restrictions or constraints on all that stuff. Since they are being blatant liars, there is no mutual trust between the regime and the people concerned. It is normal that all the brutal and corrupt regimes in the world always tell lies to the alien observers or UN agencies or journalists or diplomats pertaining to the domestic issues and the outcome of socio-economic development of the society concerned. Due to their blatant lies, the trust of international community is lessening and these communities hesitate to contribute aids to the dictatorial regimes and their people concerned. Only the humanitarian aid has been provided to aforesaid countries by international community. This situation directly affects the people concerned who are in misery. The illegitimate regimes in the world normally ignore good reputation, fame, glory and human dignity. However, in world history, most of the brutal and corrupt regimes eventually encountered great downfall in tragedy.
The self-seeking politicians are also regarded as blatant liars because they usually play dirty tricks not for the sake of people but for their interests and benefits only. They are known as mealy-mouthed politicians. This means that they are not willing or honest enough to speak in a direct or open way. The general public must be aware of their blatant lies so that they might not select the wrong candidates for the parliaments. That type of politicians just pay lip service to the supporters concerned deceitfully.
These days, some of the shopkeepers or vendors or bazaar-sellers either at the daily bazaars or at the markets use blatant lies about hike in commodity prices. They usually say the illogical reasons for why they have hiked up the prices of commodity. Such illogical reasons are considered as an obvious-lie indeed. Actually, those vendors are blatant liars as they greedily want to take a huge amount of profit from what they sell. Especially, during times of emergency, they deceive their regular customers or buyers, telling that the goods are in shortage or in scarcity and the transport links are cut off due to flooding or bad weather or natural calamity in some areas in the country. In reality, the sufficient storage of commodities is available in the country and the transport links are not severely damaged. The sellers spread fabricated news in order to take advantage over the regular buyers or customers by increasing the prices of daily commodities exorbitantly and incredibly. In this case, ordinary people must be aware of the vendors’ usual words and illogical reasons for increasing the selling prices. Their inordinate or undue greed leads to economic chaos in the society. This is also an act of profiteering indeed. i.e the act of making a lot of money in an unfair way. They show neither compassion nor sympathy on the customers as they are overwhelmed by extreme greed. The customers should know or notice that the deceitful vendors or bazaar-seller or shopkeepers use blatant lies to take a large amount of unfair profit from the essential commodity items they sell every day. The customers should not believe their reasons for increasing prices of the essential commodity items. The authorities concerned are to be held ultimately accountable for the instability of essential commodity prices. In human society, the sensible and considerate people regard the act of blatant-lie as a disgusting or detestable behavior. Blatant liars can be found in business circle in every community. Among the businessmen they use to tell lie each other for gaining much more profit and winning over business competition. In this field, the blatant liars intentionally give false statement to other businessmen so that the blatant liars can take advantage the business opportunity. This is a sort of technique that they use it to deceive other businessmen who do the same business. They ignore the moral values and ethical norms for humans. Being selfish and materialistic, they cannot abstain from telling-lie while earning.  Some people use blatant-lie in social arena too. When they exchange conversation about their social status or background or earning, they exaggerate all that stuff and tell blatant-lies about personal affairs or educational qualification in order to hide their true nature or characters. The relation between them is just a superficial social dealing indeed. The hypocrites can be called blatant liars. The hypocrites pretend as if they have moral standards or opinions, but they are of complete blatant liars indeed. They normally use pretence and blatant-lie for their personal gain and benefit. A hypocrite is a rotten apple i.e. a bad person who has a bad effect on others in a group or a society. However much the hypocrites pretend or tell blatant-lie, they cannot veil their inner rotten characters or true nature for long. This happens because truth and justice naturally stand on the innocent people concerned. The vast majority of people bitterly discredits hypocrites and regards their acts as disgusting behaviors.
In conclusion, we, the ordinary people must make our own judgment about the discreditable or shameful acts practised by those mentioned above. All innocent, simple, honest and gullible people are warned to beware of those blatant liars in their society!!!!
