I was reacquainted with a very useful word today: "Foolishness".
The person was using it in the Biblical sense.
According to Proverbs, a fool is someone who:
- Has no wisdom.
- Is incapable of obtaining wisdom.
- Who hates wisdom.
- Who resents who demonstrate wisdom
- Seeks to poison those with prudence and wisdom.
The wise person is tainted even when they attempt to correct a fool. Strife is like oxygen to fools. They court it.
To quote Remus, "Stay away from crowds."
