Socrates believed wisdom came not from what one knows, but from how much one
that one does not know. He therefore never entered politics, believing it
inappropriate for him to make the best decisions on others' behalves when he
claimed to be unwise and ignorant, knowing nothing except the path to wisdom.
Even the Oracle at Delphi agreed; it was not how much he knew or did not know,
Socrates' complete awareness of his almost complete ignorance made him the
wisest of all.
Seems like he would be best qualified for the political area, being that he was
right? Or is wisdom a hinderance to political action? Or is political
hinderance to wisdom?
I am interested to know this forums' members' thoughts about their own religion
and their own politics, how they believe they are or are not related, and
anything else in the
