What the story really telling about?
One guy trying to teach people how to lie but they did not understand very well how to lie. The people do not know how to understand the men and don't believe what he is taking about (they thought he is crazy). They used the wrong way to lie and that caused a lot of troubles, like an example: misunderstanding, fights, and in the end also deaths.
