... In other words, lying? Yeah, it's necessary. Case Closed.

Hi EpPolice
St. Augustine divided lies into eight categories, listed in order of descending severity:
Lies in religious teaching
Lies that harm others and help no one
Lies that harm others and help someone
Lies told for the pleasure of lying
Lies told to "please others in smooth discourse"
Lies that harm no one and that save someone's life
Lies that harm no one and that save someone's "purity"
Lies that harm no one and that help someone
Augustine wrote that lies told in jest, or by someone who believes or opines the lie to be true are not, in fact, lies.
I think dissimulation is probably equal to: Lies that harm others and help no one. Presumably the more higher up the list of types of lying the less we like being lied to. Maybe what seems necessary is also unacceptable?
best wishes
