I wonder who is insulted perhaps them without knowledge but then who can know what is in a man except the man himself and God, surely i will not go further than that.
There is a saying kithi
Ukungakwazi kufana lokufa!!!!!!
I dare say that this holds true everytime always. The absence of knowledge is death itself.
dumas64 you are not making any sense or have meaning in what you say. What does it mean that you need Power to have Power. This is a meaningless statement.
Before you have any power it is necessary to have knowledge first surely it takes only reason and logic to see this. Even our ancestors said so " Ukungakwazi Kufana Lokufa!"
So then the Logical and meaningful step is to aquire knowledge or else you fool yourself and will never attain to any level of power beyond the state you are in.
How can you have power to travel to the moon without the knowledge of the means to this end its impossible. Inkomo ingamzala umuntu!!!!!
Manyathela ngithi mfowethu, Power is right standing in society in whatever environment you live in. It is when you are above the environment and strive above the challenges your environment may or throws at you. You can take this to the level of your own home, work, school, country and even amoung your freinds. If you have the knowledge of the workings of your environment then you are in a position of power and can wield influence to you advantage relative to those who are in the same environment without knowledge who cease to thrive as evident because they do not possess ample knowledge to stay above water and eventually sink and drown.
Yes this is the essence in a nut shell of what is meant by power.
Kambe can the blind lead the blind and not fall into a ditch? think about it, and reason or logic will tell you that you will not have power over the ditches unless you have knowledge.
Look at the stages of knowledge this is when those who dont know they do not know are blind and they are the ones who hate knowledge and they die eventually anyway for they have hated knowledge. They have non to blame but themselves and hating knowledge they perish with no power that leads to life.
