I see no black or white answer to is. If our loyalty is first and foremost to our family and folk, then if it means protecting them, then lie. Typically I prefer honesty, however there are times when we must lie, where honesty would be unwise. If an enemy asks you to betray your friend's whereabouts, you don't tell them! No, you lie.
But just lying because you can, or because you lack strength of character — well, no, I don't agree with that.

I value hospitality, but I would not hesitate to kill a cockroach. Humans, on the other hand, are complex. We need to be complex to adapt and survive.

That depends on whether you want to be known as a man who can be trusted.
