Is Nikki Haley’s advice to the anonymous OpEd wise or foolish?
The Chicago Tribune Perspective titled, A rebuke to anonymous when I challenge the President, I do it directly, reports her advice to the anonymous White House intriguer.
This same wisdom advice was given 3000 years ago by King Solomon in Proverbs along with a warning of what will happen to him or her when their identity is revealed.
Debate thy cause with thy neighbour himself; and discover not a secret to another: (Proverb 25:9)
Debate thy cause with thy neighbour himself,…. Between thee and him alone; lay the matter before him, and hear what he has to say for himself, by which you will better judge of the nature of the cause; try to compromise things, and make up the difference between you,
Lest he that heareth it put thee to shame, and thine infamy turn not away. (Proverb 25:10)
Lest he that heareth it put thee to shame,…. Or, “reproach thee” (c) with treachery and deceit. Either the person of whom it is told, or the person to whom it is told; who may make thee ashamed, either by fixing the odious character of a defamer, a whisperer, and backbiter, on thee; or by making a retaliation, and in his turn make known some secret things concerning thyself, which before were not known, and, now published, will be to thy disgrace;
What’s My Point?
Niki Haley explanation is wise advice being given to the fool OpEd. Her wisdom appears to me to be the same wise advice given 3000 years ago.
In My Opinion
The OpEd, as well as millions of others, need to read up and spend some time learning the meanings of wise advice. The OpEd apparently did not, and when found out, will be put to shame and turned away in disgrace from the company of the wise.
Same will happen to the NYT Editorial Staff in time for their foolish decision to publish a statement from a fool.
Regards and good will blogging.
