This Esquire article discusses the author’s encounter with Radical Honesty, a philosophy that puts forth the belief that it is never right or proper to lie in any personal relationship. The literal truth must always be told. “Yes, you look fat in that dress.” “Yes, boss, I was planning on leaving the company to start my own business.” “I don’t want your mother to visit - I think she’s a bitch.” (The article elaborates a little more on the founder’s conception.)
The article, while humorous, did make me wonder: if you practiced Radical Honesty fully in your daily life, how would things turn out? What do you think the founder would say about any problems you encountered?
