Is a Lie Ever Justified? To give good reason for lying, the person doing the deceiving must be able to explain his lie in such a way that other reasonable people would agree with him that a lie was the best solution to a particular dilemma. This is the “publicity test” whereby the reason for the lie is judged to be reasonable by reasonable people.
