Periodically, I get called a hypocrite by one person or another because I don't always live up to my own standards. It has proved impossible to explain to people the difference between "the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak" and machiavellian plotting to deceive.

I wonder if people would understand a different perspective on hypocrisy: it is aspirational. Check out this article.

Everyone's a hypocrite.

Anyways, hypocrisy doesn't bother me nearly as much as it used to. It is far from the worst sin a person can commit.
