Trust: Valuable & Fragile


A comment by philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche neatly encapsulates the repercussions of unethical communication,
“What upsets me is not that you lied to me; it is that from now on, I can no longer believe you”
(cited in Johnson & Phillips, 2003, p. 22).
While lying may be common and convenient, it critically undermines community between and among people.
