"Liars are causing devastating problems. They are endangering public health. They are threatening self-government. They are destroying the reputation of good people - and inflating the reputation of people who are not so good. Nonetheless, falsehoods ought not to be censored or regulated, even if they are lies. Free societies allow them. Public officials should not be allowed to act as the truth police. A key reason is that we cannot trust officials to separate truth from falsehood; their own judgments are unreliable, and their own biases get in the way. If officials are licensed to punish falsehoods, they will end up punishing dissent. The best response to falsehoods is usually to correct them, rather than to punish or censor them. At the same time, governments should have the power to regulate the most harmful lies and falsehoods. In brief: False statements are not constitutionally protected if the government can show that they threaten to cause serious harm. Public officials should be able to restrict and punish lies and falsehoods that pose serious threats to public health and safety. To protect the democratic process, public officials should be able to restrict certain lies and falsehoods. They should be able to safeguard people's reputations. Private institutions, including television networks, magazines, and newspapers, and social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter, should be doing much more to slow or stop the spread of lies and falsehoods"--

The Liars (a bizarre Murder Mystery) ‘Lies, gossip, jealousy and a generous serving of bedroom undercover work fail to deter two of Scotland Yard’s finest in this entertaining mystery with an extra twist or two...or three.’ Pittsburgh Press When the battered body of fisherman Denis Kerkin is found hanging by one leg from an ancient stone gibbet, blunt cockney Detective Chief Superintendent Staunton and the talented and amorous Detective Inspector Wyndsor of New Scotland Yard’s Murder Squad are sent to the isolated fishing village of Crukenporth in Cornwall to investigate. Here they encounter Miss Trevose, an autocratic cripple who never leaves the room specially adapted for her requirements. It is a self-constructed cage for this woman who is old, vindictive and dying. Yet her brain is still active, confined in a maimed body as she is confined within the room, and she controls with feudal arrogance the lives of most of the inhabitants of the village. Denied personal involvement she experiences vicariously the emotions of the people she manipulates, nurses her hatreds, and plays her own specialized game with life and death. For her, the investigating officers are just two more pawns to be played as she decides. As the officers delve into the bizarre circumstances of the death and Miss Trevose plots to use the police enquiry to exact personal vengeance, it becomes clear that more than one person had good reason to wish Denis Kerkin dead. It is the 1970s and Bob Staunton and Leo Wyndsor, without the more sophisticated aids to detection available today, and in their own distinctive ways, strive to sort the truth from the lies before the passions, the hatreds and the greed they unearth explode into further violence, in this gripping novel of suspense and intrigue. The Liars is the second in the Staunton and Wyndsor series of classic police procedural murder mysteries set in various locations in Britain. The others are The Hunters, The Enthusiast and The Savages.

How does society function when you can't trust everyone? When we think about trust, we naturally think about personal relationships or bank vaults. That's too narrow. Trust is much broader, and much more important. Nothing in society works without trust. It's the foundation of communities, commerce, democracy--everything. In this insightful and entertaining book, Schneier weaves together ideas from across the social and biological sciences to explain how society induces trust. He shows how trust works and fails in social settings, communities, organizations, countries, and the world. In today's hyper-connected society, understanding the mechanisms of trust is as important as understanding electricity was a century ago. Issues of trust and security are critical to solving problems as diverse as corporate responsibility, global warming, and our moribund political system. After reading Liars and Outliers, you'll think about social problems, large and small, differently.
