How can you discern if an activist is wise or foolish?

When you listen or read the issues of an activist, how can you discern if the activist is wise or foolish? This question is not to answer whether the activist’s leader cause is right of just, rather only to discern whether his or her methods are either wise or foolish methods to resolve their cause or issue.

For example, were the disruptive methods used by the activists leaders to voice their opinions a violation of the First Amendment Rights of free speech of opponents opinions?

King Solomon 

Their purpose is to teach people to live disciplined and successful lives, to help them do what is right, just, and fair. (Proverb 1:3 NLT) 

In My Opinion

You can discern whether the activist leaders are wise or foolish by the lawful methods they use to persuade followers to their cause or belief.

For example, two wise activists were Martin Luther King Jr. and Mahtma Gandhi.

A wise activist resolves issues in a peaceful manner, whereas, a foolish activist acts OTHER..WISE
