Question: What is the origin and function of a lawyer?
According to Wikipedia: Under the heading of the; …
The earliest people who could be described as “lawyers” were probably the orators of ancient Athens… However, Athenian orators faced serious structural obstacles.
First, there was a rule that individuals were supposed to plead their own cases, which was soon bypassed by the increasing tendency of individuals to ask a “friend” for assistance.
However, around the middle of the fourth century, the Athenians disposed of the perfunctory request for a friend.
Second, a more serious obstacle, which the Athenian orators never completely overcame, was the rule that no one could take a fee to plead the cause of another.
This law was widely disregarded in practice, but was never abolished, which meant that orators could never present themselves as legal professionals or experts.
They had to uphold the legal fiction that they were merely an ordinary citizen generously helping out a friend for free, and thus they could never organize into an accepted profession, with professional associations and titles and all the other pomp and circumstance, like their modern counterparts.

A lawyer (is), or can be a double-edged sword, as he or she can advocate for another, or (they) can prosecute another.
Question: What is the purpose or value of a liar?
A question that, (at least in my opinion), deserves thorough examination…
The purpose of a lie, (again), for those of us that don’t wear our rectums as hat bands, is (a mask) worn by insecure and inadequate individuals in order to cope.
A liar (is), or can be a double-edged sword, as he or she can protect you, or (they) can destroy you.
Question: Are lawyers and liars synonymous?
Question: Can you give me an example of an advocate and an example of a prosecutor?

According to Webster: “pros·e·cute,” (in context) To pursue until completion.
Example; “You’re twelve years old throwing an iridescent red Frisbee with your friend Aaron at Lincoln Park.
Your mother went to the mall with her friend Margaret to buy a pair of shoes and charged you with the care of your seven-year-old sister Annabelle.
Annabelle wonders off across the park to watch a group of boys flying bright colored kites.
Three teenage boys with gang tattoos wearing dark colored hoodies appear and began molesting Annabelle.
You run to Annabelle’s aid, identifying yourself as her older brother and demanding in no uncertain terms that they take their hands off of her.
You are (in this circumstance), an advocate.
The boys ignore you and continue molesting Annabelle, so you rip a low hanging branch from a nearby tree and thrash the boys into understanding the error of their ways.
You are (in this circumstance), a prosecutor.
Sounds completely reasonable to me, can you give me an example of how lying to someone can be a good thing?
As “good,” like evil, is a relative term, we first have to decide what (good) means?
According to Webster: “good,” Being positive or desirable in nature.
Keeping in mind that nature, or the nature of a person, place or thing, is paramount in coming to a conclusion.
Traditionally, in matters of State and National Security, the folks that work for us in Washington D.C. constantly lie to us via the supposition, that; “what we don’t know won’t hurt us.”
Politicians, (for those unfamiliar), are “categorically” a special breed of individual that immediately upon (election) to a post of any description transform through (metamorphosis) from the guy or gal next door into the “categorical” King or Queen of their respective post.
According to Webster: “e·vil,” adj. That which causes harm, misfortune and destruction.
Liars are unequivocally “evil” and are of “Zero” value.
