    They way you illustrated the classifications of lying is really interesting. I had fun reading the diologes. You add a new classification of conservative lies, which is fair enough. You know what, I get so confused among protective lies, peace-keaping lie, and trust-keeping lies. All seem to me the same. By the way, the second example of conservative lies doesn’t seem to me as a conservative lie. In what way it is conservative?
