America Has Too Much Intellect But Too Little Wisdom

I often wonder what makes America tick and what makes America the leading country in the world, a country so attractive that humans are willing to risk their lives and limbs to get here. I have figured the answer to it lies in all the best brains in America that have made it the most lucrative land to be in.

So why then is America also failing miserably in many areas?

Again the answer lies in the same argument, what we have is just pure intellect with little wisdom.

Would you want your daughter to go under the knife to play to the male gallery? Do you want her to feel pressured to have to constantly live up to an impossible beauty standard and suffer low self-esteem, anxiety, and depression as she can no longer keep up the facade?

In the east, women are treated as property by men and their needs and emotions are stifled. In the east and middle east, the most prominent message a woman gets is her sole purpose in life is to obey and serve a man.

Why individual Choice is a Myth
