Imagine a world in which honesty dominates everything. Would it be better? How would society change?

weirdbacon asked, If everyone told the truth and was 100% honest, what jobs would become unnecessary?

Submissions have been edited for clarity, context, and profanity.

More relevant today than ever.

Companies that do background checks, maybe?

Bye-bye F.B.I.

[rebelmouse-image 18354464 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Being a spy.

They're not actually channeling your granny.

[rebelmouse-image 18354465 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Mediums.

D.N.A. doesn't lie, but people do.

[rebelmouse-image 18354466 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Detective.

Sorry but... not much honesty here.

[rebelmouse-image 18354467 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Psychics.

"Tbh, our product is pretty mediocre."

[rebelmouse-image 18354468 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Advertisers would have it rough.

Buy our product! Because.. ummm... someone likes it?

Just leave exact change, please.

No shops would need to be staffed with cashiers.

Customers could go in, take what they needed, and put the money owed in a box or tray or something.

TV would never lie to me. Ever.

[rebelmouse-image 18354470 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

People who write commercials.

That's not bluffing, that's LYING.

Professional poker player.

"Why yes, our service is terrible."

[rebelmouse-image 18345699 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I don't know about unnecessary, but customer service would become very difficult.

Don't even get me started...

[rebelmouse-image 18354473 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Megachurches.

Now even though I'm an atheist, I don't really think of regular centers of worship as dishonest. They believe what they believe, and so saying what they believe to be true is not an attempt to be dishonest.

Megachurches ain't that. Megachurches are where giant lying charismatic scumbags swindle the poor and desperate out of what little they have, in the vain hope of a miracle.

In a world with no dishonesty, they wouldn't work out so well.

Wanna buy some knives?

Multi-level marketing (MLM). I'm sure lots people would be relieved not having to grind and lie so much for a position entirely based off of 100% commission pay.

Polygraphs become a thing of the past.

[rebelmouse-image 18354475 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Lie detector dude would be unemployed.

Wouldn't it be nice if they told the truth?

[rebelmouse-image 18354476 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Politician.

It sure seems that way, far too often.

[rebelmouse-image 18354477 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

This world is built on lies. Half of the jobs would disappear.

The verdict would be obvious.

[rebelmouse-image 18354478 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Juries in a court of law

Awful lotta witches on this hunt...

[rebelmouse-image 18354479 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Robert Mueller would be conspicuously out of work.

I paid my taxes, I swear.

[rebelmouse-image 18354480 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I'd be unemployed as an auditor.

They can't all be true...

[rebelmouse-image 18349114 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Either all religious jobs or all but one religion.

Acting would become impossible.

[rebelmouse-image 18346018 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Actors.

I don't see the appeal of these rooms.

Why would one enjoy being trapped in a room?

When you watch people trapped in a movie you cheer for their release.

But this activity has gotten super popular.

And people have gotten real creative in their escapes.

Redditor CaptainCatButt wanted to hear confessions from the great escapes. They asked:

"Escape Room employees, what's the weirdest way you've seen customers try and solve an escape room?"

Much of the nation continues to reel from the news that a leaked draft opinion indicated the Supreme Court's ruling on Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization will move to strike down Roe v. Wade, the 1973 landmark decision that protects a person's right to choose reproductive healthcare without excessive government restriction.

Many people remember what it was like in the days before women could seek an abortion; many innocent women died in the absence of proper medical care or were forced to birth children they could not afford, trapping them in poverty.

But could a ruling overturning Roe v. Wade signal the loss of other rights in the future, especially those decided on the right to privacy, on which Roe was hinged?

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor thisiscubes asked the online community,

"Americans of Reddit, what are your thoughts on Roe v. Wade being overturned by SCOTUS as per draft reports?"
