Becca Benjamin has posted an intriguing blog post over on the Coffee With Kenobi website and asks the question, Is honesty the best policy? On the surface you may say "of course!" Becca digs deeper and turns to Star Wars to find the ultimate answer:
Ah, the infamous line: “So what I told you was true, from a certain point of view.”-Obi-wan Kenobi/Ben
Ever since I can remember, this dialog has intrigued me. Even more after the Prequel Trilogy was complete.
It’s fascinating how someone could alter the truth in such a way, that they actually perceived/deemed it as “acceptable.” Not to mention, to pass it along without finding fault or accepting ownership in any wrongdoing on his part.
“You’ll find that many of the truths we cling to depend greatly upon your own point of view.” – Obi-wan
Let me just point out, this would not be permissible in a court of law. Modifying the truth, to your liking, would be considered a LIE (tampering with evidence) during a trial.
It's an interesting read and not to missed. Read the whole article over at http://www.coffeewithkenobi.com/is-honesty-the-best-policy/
