Safeguarding Wisdom/Martin Rosenfeld, JD

Posted on July 2, 2017


Kathleen Parker wrote about the last tweet-storm of President Trump. She referred to the “fine art of disregard”. When under verbal assault, one needs to learn how to ignore certain comments. The “disregard” allows important work to get done. Not everybody who disagrees with us is our enemy. A successful mediation is often sparked by timely disregards. Perhaps the Talmud, 2000 years ago, said it best:”The way to safeguard wisdom is through silence”. Learning when to talk is of great importance. Learning when not to talk is a greater accomplishment. It can help in mediations and in life. Mediate don’t litigate.
