If Knowledge Is Power, Then Wisdom Prevents us from Abusing it.

Absolute power corrupts absolutely!

So, if Knowledge is power, then wisdom prevents us from abusing it.

Those who have financial and governmental power often abuse theirs and that is why it is so important to understand that wisdom is what keeps us all from destroying things.

Without wisdom that comes from hindsight, from experience and knowing good from evil, right from wrong, leadership in the world will be more likely not to abuse it's powers.

Abuse of Power

The idea that knowledge will give us power, then the pursuit of knowledge for the sole purpose of gaining power over others will lead us into abusing it. Should information be limited to only those with the foresight and compassion to only use it for the good of all mankind?


Most prayer comes from those who rely on God's power to intervene in times of trouble and turmoil in our personal lives.


Dreams may haunt us. They may disturb us. We may try to find meaning in them. But what about the dreams of Martin Luther King Jr.? Were they ambitions? I believe this is so.

Lord Acton said something very important there. There must be no absolute power. I like the MLK quote, "Hate is too great a burden to bear", on the page you linked to.
