Knowledge is not a Competition
Not all men (and especially the wisest) share the opinion that it is bad for women to be educated. But it is very true that many foolish men have claimed this because it displeased them that women knew more than they did.
- Christine de Pizan (1364-1440)
Step Back from the Ledge - Knowledge is Westward
Knowledge is not a Competition
Inspired by Christine de Pizan (1364-1440)'s quote, "Not all men (and especially the wisest) share the opinion that it is bad for women to be educated. But it is very true that many foolish men have claimed this because it displeased them that women knew more than they did." The titled responsion is not competitive in nature, it's about assessing the virtues and values in a society that is compatible with a future worth living.
The death toll alone disqualifies the ideology.
Be a Defender, Not an Offender
Inspired by John Locke's (1632-1704) quote, "The only fence against the world is a thorough knowledge of it". The titled responsion is cooperative and eusocial in nature.
To say that we live in an age of uncertainty is not far off the mark. We can never be completely sure about anything and this includes our lives. But we cannot afford to live with uncertainty as we have little control over how our lives unfold.
One of the main reasons why people live lives in which they are unsure is because they have no real control over their destiny. For example, if you do not have a definite plan of action, you cannot be sure of the outcomes. This is because in the absence of a definite direction, you will never know what your options are. For example, if you have a particular goal, you will be able to set a definite date for achieving it but will not know exactly how it will happen.
But you cannot predict the course of your life without knowing how these important decisions will turn out. Only by having a clear vision of your future prospects can you develop plans to ensure you succeed.
Fences are also very important to people. If you are living in a state of uncertainty, you cannot be sure that you will get what you want from life. And this is one of the reasons why many people choose to live in a state of uncertainty.
There are times when you are sure of where you want your life to take you, but there are also times when you are unsure of where you want it to go and this uncertainty can lead to a feeling of loss. We all know that some of us are more successful than others. But if we are uncertain of what success looks like, we may feel that we are not on the right track.
The only fence against the world is a thorough knowledge of it. A person with a strong knowledge of what is going on in the world around him or her will never allow himself or herself to live in a state of uncertainty. For example, a person who believes strongly that the United States dollar will not suffer due to global economic problems will be better equipped to deal with his or her financial needs in the future.
But the most important part of having a strong knowledge of what is happening is having the courage to face those who doubt you. There is no need to argue with people you do not know; instead, just tell them that you are confident about their assumptions. and they will likely not doubt you.
It is this kind of courage that can transform life because it can make a person feel more secure and confident in the future. And when you are sure that you have the answers to all the questions people in the world, you will have nothing to fear about.
Fences are very important for many people. It is for this reason that they seek the help of professional counselors who can help them develop their skills so that they can build their own security fence. As mentioned earlier, some people choose to live in a state of uncertainty because they fear losing control of their own lives and the lives of their loved ones.
You will never be able to fully control everything that happens in your life. But with the help of a good counselor, you can gain a strong sense of control over your life. In fact, it is the only way to become an effective and reliable leader in your life.
In order to build effective leadership, people must be motivated. So, a person who has an accurate view of how their lives work will be in the future will be able to motivate people and make them do the right things.
So, it is important that you learn to build your own fence and take the steps necessary to build it today. And remember that if you truly want to build a good fence against the world, you must first start from within yourself. and from your core values.
And That Was Yesteryear...
Inspired by Nikolai Gogol's (1809-1852) quote, "You can't imagine how stupid the whole world has grown nowadays". The titled responsion is revolutionary in origin implying that our Western cultural outlook was so last year!
I am not saying it is so, I am just trying it out for sizes despite the perversion of sorts. Imagine, for a minute or two that the cherished western democracy that our current luxuries offer were to come under threat. To say this isn't a possibility would falacious and revolutionary despite the contradiction.
