What’s My Point Questions?
When will we wise up and realize that every new generation keeps repeating the same folly of the past generations over and over, again and again?
When will we wise up and think before we make bad decisions or actions to repeat the folly rather than wisdom learned from the past?
When and how will we teach wisdom to our children to prevent them from “rediscovering” by repeating the same follies, or learning to emulate the wise decisions discovered in the past?
