no i don't believe its but i still try to follow it...
well.. honest people nowadays are numbered, I'm one of them and definitely believed on honesty is the best policy )
However there are certain times when a 'white lie' is required - like when children ask things they probably shouldn't lol.
Yes I do-always. Lying is unacceptable unless the situation is extreme, and someone would be injured because of the truth.
Yes there is no miscommunication when being honest, people know where you stand and that they can depend on you for the truth
I agree with the others - yes in most cases but sometimes it's more moral to lie (such as hiding people from genocide squads)
Just make sure you good at it. Most people know when you are lying and don't press the fact because it's not worth the effort to convince a person that the only person they are fooling are themselves. But if caught with a lie by somebody who is carrying a gun - then well - you're toast also......
i think it depends on the situation at hand yes iam bieng honest

Do you believe honesty is the best policy?

Do you believe honesty is the best policy?. . . .more. . Is it, in your opinion ALWAYS so? Would you stick with that maxim if the stakes were high and you had a good chance of getting away with it, OR do you think that is all hogwash and is used to control the naive ?

Is honesty the best policy?

Is honesty the best policy, when it comes to various things?If so, do we tell children about certain holiday characters that don't really exist and do we let them know to be honest when talking about such things to other children? Is being honest with others the same as being honest with yourself?...
