Overview
In every society, a malicious camouflage hides dishonesty in plain sight. Everyone deceives, and everyone hates being deceived. But, at best, that is only half the story. The most seductive and virulent deceptions begin with lies that we are never told and do not see: the invisible lies of omission. "Mission Omission" sees a commodity trader turned financial-fraud hunter combine provocative thought experiments with examples of true crime in American History. Readers are shocked and intrigued when they learn how suppressed truths drive world-changing events. Examples include: - Thanksgiving traditions - The Vietnam War - Watergate - The Great Recession - Suppression of the Civil Rights Movement. Despite the relentless ethical plague, this book provides a guide to good news. The scourge of omission surrounds all of us, but not all of us need to be scourged. By reflecting on compelling examples, readers learn how to avoid the snare of ethical camouflage in their day-to-day lives. With this phenomenon demystified, readers can detect and withstand invisible lies that sabotage families, relationships, and careers.
