A righteous man hateth lying: but a wicked man is loathsome, and cometh to shame.
Exodus 20:15 You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.
It is said that while the Communist ruled the Soviet Union that they would reward people who told on their neighbors. If they told on a neighbor in an apartment next to them they would get their apartment. Their neighbor would get sent off to die in the reeducation camps in Siberia called the Gulag’s.
According to a 1993 study of archival Soviet data, a total of 1,053,829 people died in the Gulag (not including labor colonies) from 1934 to 1953 (there was no archival data for the period 1919–1934).
People would often make up stories to get their neighbors apartments for more room. How hideous a person must become too damn their neighbor to death. Even children and parents would do it to each other. That situation was hell.
