Hypocrisy is the ugliest trait

Hypocrisy is undoubtedly one of the most detestable qualities. It is in man's nature to accept happiness and freedom; and to upgrade itself to the highest degree of dignity. Yet when man becomes polluted with lying, violation of promises and breaching of agreements, hypocrisy finds itself a wide arena and is ready to penetrate such polluted natures. Hypocrisy advances in these circumstances until it eventually becomes an acute disease. Hypocrisy not only prevents individuals from reaching the truth or even attempting to discover it, but it also becomes an indestructible dam placed on the path of acquiring noble characteristics.Of course, all that stands in the path of sensible conduct and psychological integrity; and contradicts the life of happiness which relies on spiritual perfection. Hypocrisy is a dangerous epidemic which threatens man's honor and dignity, leads to irresponsibility and lowly traits, and replaces his self-confidence with suspicion, pessimism and anxiety. Those who reach the dangerous point in their behavioral misconduct convince themselves that they want the best for all people. When this troubled person (hypocrite) deals with an unharmonious couple, he presents himself as a dear friend and faithful advisor and then turns around and puts the other down, greatly criticizing him, while in fact he feels no spiritual or moral relations to either of them.

The defending False compliments, unconditional acceptance of other from ideologies, and refraining righteousness when it is essential, are all characteristics of hypocrites. According to a great scholar, “hypocrites are more dangerous than arch-enemies.” Enemies have the characteristics of being both covert and overt enemies; for animosity has just one color. I wish that friends were like enemies as far as pretence is concerned. Undoubtedly, friends that are hypocrites are worse than the common enemy. Because the hypocrite is unable to win the hearts of those he deals with or gain love and respect, his life is full of humiliation and disgust.His attempts to conceal the facts prevent him from living a secure, stable, and anxiety free life; for he is in constant fear of the inevitable discovery of what he really is. One of the elements of social sorrow is the way hypocrisy is spreading and the lack of honesty and sincerity among various classes of society. If hypocrisy penetrates the structure of a community and overwhelms the hearts of its members, then in addition to the deceit and lowliness which become apparent among them; such a community will face an inevitable downfall. The British scholar Samuel Smiles said: “The conduct of contemporary politicians is on the path of corruption and disorder. The opinions which they give in their reception rooms vary from those they give in public speeches.

For instance, these politicians praise the people for their patriotic feelings and then turn around and laugh at the same in their private meetings.” Fluctuations of thought exist in our era more than at any time in the past, and principles change and vary as interests do. I believe that hypocrisy will gradually crawl out of its lowly shell and eventually become a praiseworthy quality; for if the upper class of a society becomes used to hypocrisy, all other class will follow adopting the same views, for they derive their habits and conduct from the higher classes. The fame which is gained today is earned when the evil traits of the people are exposed; ignoring the noble qualities of ally. There is a Russian proverb that says: "He who has a strong spine can not be promoted to higher position."

The spines of men who adore fame eventually become weak and flexible so as to follow the tides of reputation by deceiving people, concealing the facts from the public and speaking exactly as the lower classes long to hear. Worse yet is to exploit the dissention and hypocrisy which might exist between the different classes of society. Such fame cannot be viewed by righteous save with disgust and resentment, and its advocates have no respect or honor.” Sincerity and honesty are manifestations of a pure conscience and are the most honorable traits of life.These traits which are found in those with truly pure souls, harmonize personalities and bring peace, unity and strength into the community. It is natural for man to love his faithful friends more than those he doubts, and as the love of the faithful increases, the hatred for the hypocrites also increases.   Hypocrisy: The Ugliest Trait Hypocrisy is undoubtedly one of the most detestable qualities.
