    What Would the World Be Like If We Valued Wisdom More?

    Recently I've been talking with various people about some of the world's problems, and it seems to me like humans are complete idiots sometimes. (Note: I include myself in that assessment!). We do the most foolish self-destructive things, and the future for our children and all...
