We are all born with the heart of a fool. Just observe children and their foolish love for things they should be weary of. We must be guided down the path we must go. We cannot go it alone. Else, we will just grow up to remain as fools. The predominate forces of society are based on lies and deception. Leading people to believe falsities about themselves and of others. They do remain foolish. But are oblivious to that fact because of their ignorance. Educational institutions do not remove foolishness from a person. They add additional knowledge that is destined to be used by the fool. Ultimately recklessly. The bottom line for society is to keep a population of easily duped people who are compliant and foolishly conform to the ways of society. This is what the richest people in the world want in order to remain rich. TO build consumer cattle out of the unsuspecting population. Wisdom is not generated amongst the masses. History has more than demonstrated many times over that wisdom only exists absent of financial wealth, power, and vanity. Those three things dominate modern traditions. Thus, explains the common foolishness that is now woven in society. To find wisdom, one MUST be in touch with virtues, such as humility, modesty, self sacrifice, and peace. By no coincidence, a person who is aware of the importance of these virtues will have no interest in money or vanity. They cannot co-exist with virtues. There have been many rich persons who found virtues and suddenly gave away their wealth. They found their way, knowing that the virtues conquer all.

So while your neighbor, your brother, or anyone else continues to live the credit based lifestyle, and without virtue and wisdom, YOU can change the way you live yours. Deny your lust and desires. Live with a real purpose in life that is much needed in this world. Living for one's self is easy. Any fool can do it. But it takes a real human to sacrifice all those things for the sake of a force of good that exists outside themselves. Humility and modesty do not boast about themselves. They do not tell others about their good deeds. Only a fool with lust to self satisfy will go and tell a friend about the good they have done. Shut your mouth. Keep it shut. And set the example for others to interpret. That is how good functions best.
