What did the wise man do next to save the city?

In Post Two I stated I will explore what the wise man did next after resting 6calm to save the city.

The Purpose of this Post

 Is to relate an ancient proverb to what I surmise gives a clue what the wise man did to save the city from the events described as an analogy as I explained in Post One.

 King Solomon

Invest in seven ventures, yes, in eight; you do not know what disaster may come upon the land. (Ecclesiastes 11:2)

What’s My Point?

I surmise after restoring calm to the defenders behind the walls of the city by meeting with them to review plans how to defend the city.

 For example, the King of the City was wise and had been prudent to plan for the possibility of a siege or famine and stored a sufficient supply of food and weapons.

The city water was obtained from a deep underground spring fed wells which the invaders could not access to cut off from the city dwellers.

In My Opinion

This analogy compared to our contemporary experiences highlights the folly of USA leaders who did opposite the Ecclesiastes verse and the result is what we are now experiencing with the COVID virus pandemic.

Because past leaders listened to economist theories of globalism and outsourcing manufacturing of 90 percent of USA medical PPE and drugs to sources 8000 miles away, the result of shortages of these supplies and lack of planning and saving for because “you do not know what disaster may come upon the land.” has resulted in spreading the virus and resultant deaths and the need for huge borrowing to add to the National Debt.

In other words, the ancient King who wrote the above verse was wiser than USA leaders.

In My Next Post

I will explore what I surmise the wiseman did next to save the city.

You Decide

Would it have been wise for our leaders to understand the wisdom of Ecclesiastes above verse before they listened to the economists who convinced them that globalism was wise and the USA should change from a self-sustaining and reliant Nation with a manufacturing economy to a service economy explained in a speech given by President Obama?
