Do you believe government is necessary? 

If you do, why do you think you need to be told how to live your life? Are you just that stupid and dangerous to yourself?

Remember That Knowledge & Wisdom Are NOT The Same Thing

I've known more than a few intelligent people in my life who didn't seem to have a shred of wisdom. You can be intelligent and not very smart all at the same time.

I work with a lot of people with advanced college degrees. They have Ph.D.’s and all kinds of letters after their names testifying to their vast knowledge. And yet many of them are incapable of showing good judgment in some of their life choices. These people are perfect illustrations that knowledge and wisdom are not the same thing.*

Knowledge is the accumulation of information, while wisdom is the ability to make wise decisions. Knowledge can be lost and gained over a lifetime but, once gained, wisdom stays constant. Knowledge can become outdated, and new knowledge becomes necessary. However, wisdom remains timeless.

Although the pursuit of knowledge is an admirable goal, having knowledge without wisdom is pretty close to useless. Wisdom allows us to take the knowledge we have and apply it to our circumstances and make smart choices.

A little wisdom will get us a lot further in life than a lot of knowledge. And while a classroom might be the best place to acquire knowledge, the best place to gain wisdom is through our own personal experiences. So let's start becoming more 'wise' today.

When I say that, I mean it.  But I don't let men get close enough for it to matter. /shrug
