    Wisdom, What Is This Thing We Call Wisdom?

    When Did We Stop Expecting Wisdom In Our Leaders?

    In early societies, the elders with wisdom would guide/rule their people. Now it seems who ever has the most money has the power to rule and those with the ethics and wisdom are pushed aside. It seems like it has been a long process of brainwashing people into thinking what is...
