Whoops! Maybe you were looking for Government, or Truth?

Lies are simple facts given to you that are untrue. Lies have the potential to be harmless (like saying you are superman). Whilst having the potential to be lethal (such as trying to prove you are superman by jumping off a building). If you tell a lie you are general considered to be an evil person, who is menace to society and must be locked up at all costs!

(Well that's my opinion at least.)
