The conflict between good and evil, introduced by Zoroaster, over 3000 years ago, is as old as the hills. Hypothetically, good and evil resemble a man and his shadow, in which evil reverses its position in accordance with the direction of light.
Accidentally, it seems that good or evil can simultaneously reproduces the opposite just like photography: negative image versus positive prints. Up to 1970s the fight against evil was universally accepted, in literature and business. Theoretically good men were in charge. The entire standing codes of justice around the globe are still written to combat evil.
As of 1970s, the sunrise of mankind seems to be over; sunset has already set in. Man is standing in front of a setting sun while the shadow of evil is getting longer and longer. Obviously, some invisible agencies have mobilized the rise of evil to challenge the good.
As stated earlier, Zoroastrian faith was based on the conflict between 'good' and 'evil'. The followers of this faith, mostly Persians, some 1400 years ago, gradually abandoned their original oath or their 1st commandment: Thou shall not lie.
Naturally, these new converts have refused to adhere genuinely to the new faith; while they have systematically altered the concepts of the new harsh odd ideology to suit their own taste. In their struggle, they have ended up with a faith which is neither Zoroastrianism nor the adopted ideology. In their conversion under duress, they have done damaging effects to their daily life i.e. telling lies.
As a result, from sunrise to subset, they constantly lie and cheat one another. Their motto has become 'Dishonesty is the best policy'. Virtually, they all live in a world run by a deity who takes bribes in the form of prayers supplemented by some financial donations such as free food to people who self-flagellate on a couple of days throughout the year and passing a form of tithe to ever increasing number of so-called foreign Princes, living in exile for 1400 year in their land, believing that these Princes can eventually ask the almighty to provide the donators with a suite in the paradise staffed with black-eyed-black-haired translucent skinned females!
Since couture dies hard, telling lies was formally considered inappropriate, but, in 2010, lying is legally sanctioned. Their religious leaders-turned-rulers have collected and interpreted all words and phrases registered in their script or quotes from their still alive dead authorities to back up the canonically practiced lying.
This formal conditioning has drastically affected their daily life: husband v wife; children v parents; pupils v teachers; shopkeepers v customers; doctors v patients and above all a bride who has lost her virtue before being married, a practice that calls for stoning to death or honor killing, now buys a $30 artificial virginal hymen, imported from friendly Maoist China plus some personal moaning at the wedding night to fake painful rupture of hymen.
