I’d like to know whether the use of “one” - as a gender-neutral pronoun — is used by native speakers often.
For example: “One should always tell the truth, if one wants to be respected.”
Is this a current use or considered old-fashioned?
I know we can say “Someone should always tell the truth, if they want to be respected”
However, I really want to know if the “one” is used nowadays for advice, general statements, or whatnot.
Thank you very much!
(Btw, I am looking for something current, but also formal in order for me to use this in essays or whatever.)
