  1. Gosh, this is fascinating.
    Lying is telling something untrue to intentionally deceive someone. Omission is intentionally leaving out details to deceive. So on the topic of half-truths and omission, I think they can be just as bad as lying if the intention is to deceive. I personally think situations, like when Irena Sendler lied, are justified. But it’s not an easy topic and a multi-dimensional one. This is definitely something that has piqued my interest. I’m going to be looking into it further. Thanks, Phil Lollar for that 😀
    ….But tying this back to Morrie, he is still 100% in the wrong IMO. But I’m very excited to hear the whole interview.

  2. Literally studying a book called The Prince by Machiavelli and come to the question of “do the ends justify the means”….
    just can’t get away from this topic😂
    Don’t think my teacher will understand if I use Morrie as an example tho lol
    Incredible how this kids show has sparked such a deep debate about good and evil, can’t wait to hear the rest of the Morrie, Suzu, Emily arc!

    1. Exactly! I love that Odyssey has dared go this way and started these discussions!
      Machiavelli certainly believed that the ends justify the means. However, Phil doesn’t. He believes that the ends were good and the means were good. There was no need to justify them. That’s a slightly different topic and is more eerie in a way.

      1. That’s definitely what bothers me the most about these episodes is Phil trying to tell us what Morrie did was right…..
        I can kinda get on board with Morrie acting for the right reasons but justifying his actions goes too far.

  3. Have you ever heard Lamplighter Theater “The Hidden Hand”

    The main character sounds like Connie. One of the lines she says is “absolutely not.” So the answer of “was Morrie right” Capitolia comes crashing in on her hose shooting peas out of a gun saying Absolutely Not!!
