Was this calm statement made by an experienced political actress actually wise advice or folly for her followers? 

Was Hillary Clinton concealing or revealing her anger when she stated, “”You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about,” Clinton told the CNN anchor?

The purpose of this post is to question the wisdom of politicians making statements to intentionally anger voters to follow their foolish advice.

King Solomon

Make no friendship with an angry man; and with a furious man thou shalt not go: (Proverb 22:24)

Make no friendship with an angry man,…. Do not associate with him; contract not a familiarity with him; make him not a companion; take him not into an intimacy, or use him as a particular friend and acquaintance: a man should be courteous, and carry it civilly to all men; but he should take care whom he admits as his bosom friend; he should be cautious in his choice of a familiar friend, and not receive any; and, among the rest, avoid an angry and passionate man, one who is much given to passion himself, and stirs it up in others; for there can be no lasting peace and pleasure in such a man’s company and conversation;

and with a furious man thou shall not go: not take a walk with him, much less a journey; or shall not be frequently together. It may be rendered, “unto a man of wraths”, or of great wrath and “fury, thou shall not come”; not enter into his house, nor seek his company, and court his conversation, which rather should be shunned.(Source HERE)

What’s My Point?

According to the wisdom of King Solomon, it is foolish to make friends with an angry man or woman.

In a previous post, I explained the psychology of civility of politics to be a wise way to compromise and unveil opposing political views to lead to compromise.

In My Opinion

If you choose to vote for an angry candidate in the coming election, according to King Solomon’s wisdom, you are following foolish advice.

You Decide

Is Hillary a wise or foolish political actress?

Regards and good will blogging.
