Ok.

There must be a brilliant reason for giving us the right to not incriminate ourselves because the Founders were, pretty much, brilliant.

Hoping someone can explain it to me.

I'm in court.

I'm under penalty of perjury if I lie.

So they ask me something that I KNOW the answer to, and my answer would show I'm guilty.

Why under oath am I allowed to evade the question? If I'm telling the "whole truth" should not I have to say "yes sir. I shredded those documents and lit them on fire".
