Lying, deception, dishonesty we see it in politics, board meetings, and even in our own living room. What's going on here? Psychologists assert it's nothing out of the ordinary. Most people lie once or twice a day―as often as they snack from the refrigerator or brush their teeth. Most of us could probably not get through the day without being deceptive. But when researchers refer to lying, they don't include the mindless pleasantries or polite equivocations we offer each other in passing, such as “I'm fine, thanks,” or “No problem.” A “real” lie, say researchers, deliberately misleads by conveying a false impression. Complimenting a friend's awful haircut and telling a creditor that the check is in the mail both qualify. Although we are socialized from the time we begin speaking to believe that it's always better to tell the truth, in reality society often encourages and even rewards deception. Lying may actually serve as a kind of harmless social lubricant and protect people from the consequences of being truthful. Show up late for an early morning meeting at work and it's best not to admit that you overslept, saying rather, that you were stuck in traffic. Think how often we hear of lawyers constructing farfetched theories on behalf of their clients or reporters misrepresenting themselves in order to gain access to good stones. While the picture of lying that has emerged in recent years is far more lenient than its biblical “thou shall not” status, many people continue to feel guilty about their behavior. It’s tempting to think that the world would become a better place when purged of the deceptions that seem to interfere with our attempts at genuine communication or intimacy. On the other hand, anyone who insists on condemning all lies should ponder what would happen if we could reliably tell every time our family members and friends were deceiving us. Perhaps our social lives would collapse under the weight of relentless honesty. The prevalence of lying is clearly a problem, but would we want to do away with all of our lies? Let's be honest.
補足説明 Although we are socialized from (the time we begin speaking) 人は(話すことを始めた時)から、社会化され（要するに人づきあい） to believe that it's always better to tell the truth, 本当のことを言った方がいいと思うようになるのだが この不定詞は「結果」を表す用法で、よく出る例文が Ｈe lived to be 90. 人生を送って、最後には９０歳の年齢に達した。 ９０になる目的で、生きていた、ではないですよね。
私的には結果というより、「結末」という言い方のほうがしっくりします。 この用法の場合、andを使って表現できるのが特徴です。 we are socialized from the time we begin speaking and come to believe～ He lived (a life) and became 90 finally. in reality society often encourages and even rewards deception. ここの説明は不要でしょう。
