In Part I, Chapter VI, Gulliver describes many of Lilliput's laws, telling the reader that dishonesty and false accusations are punished more severely than theft and other terrible things are punished in England. If someone in Lilliput accuses another but is proven to be wrong in the accusation, the accused is punished severely while the falsely accused person is rewarded. In this context, people who falsely accused would be far less likely to make those accusations. In a world where people accuse others unjustly simply to make a point or gain revenge, this form of punishment and reward might possibly eliminate lies pointed at people out of spite.
