Hello y'all...! I need help thinking of examples where lying is beneficial because I'm trying to disprove the idea that "the truth is necessary for survival." Specifics examples from history, current events, literature, popular culture... Any of those work~ thanks in advance if you come up with something, I really appreciate it.

When going to sleep lying is beneficial because if you sleep standing up you're gonna end up on the floor anyways. Kappa.

+1 Being a spy. You have to constantly lie about a lot of things for the sake of survival and put on an appearance that you're telling the truth while at it.

If you're looking for examples, there are plenty from history (Juan Pujol Garcia if you need a quick one), or novels and movies that you may already know about.

+1 The most cut and dry response is whether you should tell Nazi soldiers whether you know were a Jewish couple is. Most people agree that not lying would be the immoral thing to do.
