The rate at which conflicts are breaking out in different parts of the world these days is alarming. The consequences of these conflicts are deaths resulting from outright war, protests, and manifestations. Political instability, bad governance, and insurgency seem to be killing more than any pandemic has ever done. It is becoming difficult for philosophers and political scientists to fold their arms and watch this global political mayhem. In this article, we try to find out why it is becoming increasingly difficult for people to live together in peace and harmony. We argue here that the cause of this chaos is the dominant presence of lying and intentional deception in political action across the world. Political actors have gotten so used to the system of misinformation and distortion of facts that they have not noticed that the world has evolved such that it is becoming relatively easier to carry out fact-checking. Even from the comfort of one’s bedroom, one can painlessly verify information that is given in public space and debunk it with ease. This means that lying no longer has a place in global politics. When people find out the truth, they are bound to revolt, and the result is conflicts and deaths. Here we suggest that lying is no longer effective in politics, and so politicians should be realistic and adopt the ethics of truth, which demand honesty, respect for human rights, and responsibility.
