When the cause is a lie, lies cause wars

Words like honesty and truth only exist because we crave a moral scale on which to measure error. We crave because we embrace their antonyms so readily in the face of adversity: error with a purpose, knowingly made, seldom has a purely good purpose.

If honesty and truth were the only kind of expressed information, we wouldn't have those words or understand their meaning.

And what then of the word "peace"?
