Puzzle through the ethicaldilemma of lying to a friend, and decide: is lying always wrong or can it be justifiable?
Your plan to set up your friend Carey with your acquaintance Emerson is finally coming together. You’ve made them a dinner reservation, but suddenly realize that there's a problem: Carey is always late. You really want this relationship to work— what if you told Carey dinner was at 6 instead of 6:30, so they arrived on time? Is it okay to lie? SarahStroud explores this classic ethicaldilemma.
