Intelligence is not Wisdom

It was Thomas Edison who brought us electricity, not the “Clean energy council”. It was the Wright brothers who got us off the ground, not the Australian Aviation Administration.

It was Henry Ford who ended the isolation of millions of People world wide by making the automobile affordable, not The Labor or Liberal Party and especially not any socialist politician of the time.

Those who have helped the poor the most have not been those who have gone around loudly expressing 'compassion' for the poor, but those who found ways to make industry more productive and distribution more efficient, so that the poor of today can afford things that the affluent of yesterday could only dream about.

We need to fight against the ideology of intellectuals trying to push social agendas. It’s time to start teaching our children how to think, not what to think. Intelligence is not wisdom.
