Proverbs 1:5 A wise man will hear and increase in learning, and a man of understanding will acquire wise counsel,
Proverbs 8:17 I love those who love me(wisdom)
And those who diligently seek me (wisdom)will find me.
The book of Proverbs has over twenty admonitions to seek wisdom from others. The obvious truth would be to seek it from wise people not fools.
I spend a lot of time reading and listening in my pursuit of wisdom. I read when I am sitting and I listen when I am moving. With a Smart phone that bluetooths with my hearing aids it is easy to listen a lot. I listen to sermons, seminars, podcasts, and audiobooks. Many of the authors that I read and speakers I listen to have been censored by Twitter, Facebook, and Youtube because they are writing and saying things that go against the mainstream accepted information and therefore get labeled as ”false information.”
It would seem evident that if dispensers of information and knowledge like Facebook restricted some information claiming that it is false because it doesn’t fit the agenda being championed, it wouldn’t be an excellent source for real wisdom but instead an excellent source for propaganda.
I regularly get stuff from people in response to my blog or things that I have read and shared on Facebook that contradicts what I have written or shared. What I get is almost always stuff that is in the center of the accepted agenda of the media. Organizations that give advice, opinions, and mandates that are driven by money are seldom driven by science though they claim that, but they are the accepted source of accurate information by most.
As I read and listen I know the difference between a kook and someone who is an independent thinker who is driven by a desire for truth rather than riches. The people I seek wisdom from often get labeled as kooks. That is the method of dealing with people who don’t agree with you nowadays, call them a kook or worse.
I just finished listening to a presentation on the negative effects and consequences of ”lockdowns”. Just a few on the list was a dramatic increase in suicides, depression, domestic violence, alcohol consumption, drug use, failure of small businesses, divorce, and probably many thousands around the world starving shortly because of significantly reduced production, and the overall rise in fear.
I knew all that before listening to the speaker by just talking to people in my life. So, why do we have these lockdowns?
