Truth

Truth is a divine attribute and aspiration like beauty and goodness. In the world of public service, trustworthiness, dependability, wise decision-making and solid relationships all depend upon truth. Is it in shorter supply than it used to be? How can it be recognised and where can it be reliably found? Is it justified for politicians to tell lies in order to do good, or does that lastingly undermine the public’s faith in political leadership? Is there such a thing as diplomatic truth?
