Charles H. Green

ha ha, I love it, yup, serve your time.
The irony is, the reason we fall prey to doing the faking sincerity thing is that we're afraid. And in our haste to avoid "doing the wrong thing," we substitute tons of "not doing the right thing."

This just ends up creating more risk, which we thougth we were avoinding in the first place. Except then the stakes are bigger.

Fake sincerity gets you into the realm of "minimally socially acceptable," of "plausible deniability." Until some day you get called on it; and being called on fake sincerity is a whole lot worse than having slid your way through a few awkward moments.

Faking sincerity is indeed prison.
