Foolishness by dlawale(m): 10:27pm On Nov 17, 2011
FOOLISHNESS crept into the 21st Century World and we all decided to embrace it,give it a personal assistant,Bentley and great big mansion to sit and rule, I'm not as old as most of you dear friends but i have also seen some foolishness under the sun. Man made the cars,now your brand of car determines how much of a MAN u r; man made the clothes,now the clothes u put on determines your financial status;We stoned and cursed prostitutes many years ago because they slit their tops to reveal their clevage,made thin straps over their shoulders;centuries passed and the outfit was named spagetti strap.Almost all females wore it,hence d pple they didn't like dictated their dress sense and fashion statement; Many yrs ago,we sent pple to prison to get reformed in mind,dressing, character and reflex.Well,these pple got into the prisons and most of them didn't get have their right prison outfit size for the prison clothes since the wardens only created 3 sizes and never bothered with measurements.In prison,the prisoners walked funny and often had their trousers falling to their butts cos there were no belts,2day,they have dictated and made a statement with the clothes.Many created carpenter jeans, others created their jeans but many sagged and placed it on their butts.That's what d large percentage of youth are doing.Even some adults dressed in suit do this.The big question is who reformed who's thinking.I guess they reformed ours, L̃̾Õ☺Õ̾Ô=Dcheesy=))winkÕÔ☺ÔÕ̾L̃̾. I have seen additional foolishness under the sun.Nigerian music artistes with head warmers,leather trousers and jackets in a hot climate like ours.The Americans are free to do this; , Man reprinted the two books called the Bible and Quran.Yet we see people that get angry because either book was placed on the floor or either book was burnt.Friends,they are just books made from trees if the words in them are not alive and at work in you, In Africa,paying rent,buying a car,getting a visa abroad are land mark testimonies celebrated with dancing.In Europe,these are simply responsibilities fulfilled.We need to upgrade our mindsets.Electronics are upgraded,phones are upgraded,cars are upgraded.Even human beings need to be upgraded. FOOLISHNESS Has been made a product of high economic DEMAND while wisdom
/intelligence remains SCARCE.Unfortunately,our CHOICES have made wisdom the OPPORTUNITY COST even though the SUPPLY of foolishness to our continent is not determined by QUANTITY but the PRICE we have placed on it, I sure do remember my economics :-)
