The most hateful and despicable way of lying is by evading from the truth, burying it under the rubble of insignificant details. “Did I lie to you by omitting the truth? Do I really speak when I prefer to shut up?” – yes, you do speak in disfavor of what really is at stake: the unknown truth. That’s why I find gross not the mendacity of the kind of people who devise fictions of reality (but cannot hold on to their fake threads indeterminately), but of the ones who keep quiet about it. Their sly silence, their silent looks keep everything simple… they’re always trying to get away with a clean record as if their only treasure is the honesty they seem to enjoy on the outside.
