Description

Lying, defamation, and lashon hara are clearly harmful and negative; their prohibition is not surprising. Why, though, is wasting words so severe that is warrants specific mention? It appears to be neither harmful nor evil, simply unnecessary. The question we must address then, is why are wasted words both so enjoyable and so spiritually harmful?
