What’s Missing From The Ten Commandments?

@curtdoolittle —“We could live only by 10 commandments refined.”–

The 10 commandments did not tell us how to speak the truth, only that we should not lie, steal, kill. That is its failing.

That the commandments (truths) were delivered to us by lies, does not help us either. Natural law says the same, but truthfully.

That said, we may state the ten commandments as natural law discovered by empirical research using common law.

But we must tell men how to speak truthfully for it is unnatural to them. Language evolved to negotiate, not speak truth

Western man needs no lies. Truth is our weapon, not deceit. Even deceit with good intent produces negative externalities.
