Is it smart to be deceitful?

SHAFAQNA – Imam Ali (AS) said: O’ people, faithfulness is accompanied by the truth which I do not know of any other stronger protecting shield. The one, who is aware of his /her return to the Judgment Day, is not involved with treachery and the practice of deception. But today we live in a time and a place where most people consider treachery and deception as being smart and clever; and the ignorant people think these type of people as prudent and wise [1].
