The dangers of being wise that no one will ever tell you
Are there any negative effects of being wise? Of course!
- Heard about Socrates, Jesus, William Tyndale, Giordano Bruno etc? They all died because they were wise. If you want to live long, keep your mouth shut and just pretend to be dumb. Now, if you are really wise you would't mind it so much.
- Try being wise with your teacher in a classroom. You run the danger of being expelled. Nobody can be wiser in a class than the teacher.
- Try being wise with family and parents. You risk getting recommended for psychiatric treatment for mental issues. Nobody is wiser at home than parents.
- Try being wise with your friends. You'll be mostly left alone. No party invitations, no hanging out at bars and clubs. Now, if you are really wise you wouldn't mind it so much...
- Try being wise with your boss. You get fired or accused for bullying/ absconding/ messing up/ damaging/ destroying office work ethics. Nobody is wiser in the office than the boss (and his associates and assistants).
- Try being wise with your colleagues. You will be shunned like corona infection. Now if you are really wise you wouldn't mind it so much.
- Try being wise with your spouse. Well, if you are really wise you won't have one in the first place. In any case nobody is wiser at home than one's spouse.
- Try being wise with your religion or religious head if you believe in them. No way. It is blasphemy and you run the risk of rotting or burning in hell for eternity. Nobody is wiser than religion/ religious head. Now, if you are insane you wouldn't mind it so much.
- Try being wise with society. You get black listed, boycotted, jailed, ridiculed, condemned or worse. Now, if you are really wise you would refer to point number 1.
- Moral of the story: Being dumb is so much better, easier, healthier, safer, normal and enjoyable. Stay dumb and enjoy your dumbness. There are less hazardous ambitions in life too.
Note: I don't know if I am being wise or dumb making this post but thanks for understanding my satire!
