On a supposed right to lie by Kant

It is our duty to tell the truth. Truthfulness is a duty that must be regarded as the basis for all duties. It should be sacred and unconditionally commanding law of reason. It is not just a right it is a duty. Lies always cause harm. If it doesn't directly harm someone it still does harm to humanity. If you do choose to lie, the consequences must be paid. Telling the truth is an inconditional duty which holds in all circumstances. When we lie we are doing wrong which is unjust.
