More than you realize, Double D. I fear this disgusting event is representative of the sickness in society in general. From the cowardly ganging up on a single person, the behaviors of male and female Karens, and ever-present projecting of misconduct onto the victim. Utterly refusing to be responsible for ones own conduct, criminal and otherwise. We're sick, and severely need an outside remedy, whether heavenly, or extraterrestrial. As humanity has proven to be too stupid to self-correct. We seem to insist on repeating the worst attitudes and behaviors over and over. Thuggism comes in all sizes, shapes, hues, and forms. Along with excuses for it. Seen it all, and all across the country.
Woodsman, your 'wisdom to know
understand wisdom' description seems good, and ^ that statement is profound ^ --
Here's something from the Bible (written approx 2500 years ago),
book of James, Chapter 3 (notice how this NIV emphasizes the wrong kind of wisdom as " "wisdom" " (in quotes)) :
Two Kinds of Wisdom
Who is wise and understanding among you? Let them show it by their good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom. 14
But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts
, do not boast about it or deny the truth. 15 Such “wisdom” does not come down from heaven
but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. 16
For where you have envy and selfish ambition
, there you find disorder
and every evil practice.
17 But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere
. 18 Peacemakers
who sow in peace reap a harvest of righteousness.
5Get wisdom, get understanding
; do not forget my words or turn from them.
Do not forsake wisdom, and she will preserve you; love her, and she will guard you.
Wisdom is supreme; so acquire wisdom. And whatever you may acquire,a
Prize her, and she will exalt you; if you embrace her, she will honor you.
She will set a garland of grace on your head; she will present you with a crown of beauty.”
