If other measures prevent harm, lying would certainly be unnecessary. To your credit, this is a valid argument.

If A then B: If other measures besides lying prevent harm being done, then lying is NOT necessary to prevent harm.
A: Other measures besides lying do in fact prevent harm being done
Therefore B: Lying actually is NOT necessary to prevent harm.

Mea culpa.

I highly commend you for being so open when reading what I wrote. Only on the very rarest of occasions do I get understood, so I thank you profusely for taking notice of what I write. I am only learning how to write and communicate, and the way you responded to Me previously helped me to better express. I commend you for that and commend you more for acknowledging what I wrote and being so honest about it. Thanks again
