Honesty is an essential foundation for personal and communal integrities --- because if we cannot trust each other to be open and honest, we cannot effectively cooperate or engage in mutually helpful collaborations. True lovers trust each other because in their sanctuary communities they know that they are safe, and they truly feel safe, in taking many risks together with each other.
Domineering people's unilateral efforts to achieve security are counter-productive, because they try to achieve security for themselves at other people's expense.
