“The saddest aspect of life right now is that science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom.”
American writer and professor Isaac Asimov
I was only able to catch brief glimpses of the opening day U.S. Senate’s impeachment trial of Donald Trump, but based upon what I did see, the proof of Asimov’s quote was on full display for anyone who was tuning in to watch it.
I think the actions on the part of Mitch McConnell and every single Republican senator showed not only their unwillingness to gather knowledge, but their inability to exercise wisdom.
