    If everyone was honest. I'm doing a thought exercise and I figured I'd see what everyone else thinks. I think im missing some areas.

    I'm not really that sure of that. I mean why does being honest and having integrity have to make you look cheesy and childlike? I don't see that it does.

    It would be a much better place.

    When you refuse lies your life is completely simplified.

    All people would be happier and you would know who you wanted to associate with rigth away.

    Some people are assholes and you would be able to spot them right off.

    They would state their real motivations with their every word.

    It depends on how you define "honest."

    See, I don't think it would be that dull at all. I think it would be invigorating, refreshing. I think we would see amazing progress in commerce, science, philosophy, art, music, etc. Everyone in the world would have food with tons to spare.

    Of course, living such a life isn't easy. I am just trying to get a clear vision of what the world would be like.
