Will We Ever Be Wise?
Should collective wisdom replace conventional “wisdumb”?
The wisdom of the collective of all human beings would be a majority wisdom, which is not always better than being ruled by a ‘tyranny of the minority.’
The majority elects to be ruled, led and supervised to avoid chaos, violence and anarchy.This is not to say that wisdom is for the few or that those in power have it.
The imbalance of power is currently reflected in the displacement of human resources. The wisdom of humanity has failed to evolve beyond greed and fear. There are resources enough to feed, educate and heal.
What is lacking in this world is the commitment to care for others. Until we see our fate as connected to the whole, we fail to grasp a wisdom that would truly empower.
