The Folly of Wickedness Mrs. Blessing S. Yaede in her glorious praise song, Sor Nee doh Poro, which translated from Khana, an Ogoni dialect means when a person does evil, or basically when a person is wicked. As in the song, wickedness never goes unpunished. Quite often you start to wonder why a person would choose to be wicked. Why would they want cause mischief. Well, using economic reasoning, a person usually does what he or she does in pursuit of some gain. People donâ€™t typically pursue what will be harmful to them. A wicked person may not see his mischief as anything for himself. Although he may see the pain inflicted on the victim of his enterprise, he may actually be proud and happy, believing he has done something good. Even in sports, when a player who has been fouled retaliates blatantly, he is often doing so to achieve some measure of satisfaction. But this is clearly full of folly. Folly in the sense that the action obviously lacks good sense or normal prudence and foresight. It is folly, because, often the offender thinks he would not be caught. This folly in wickedness can sometimes be criminally or tragically foolish, because the odds are that typically you get caught, especially if the wickedness is perpetrated where the rule of law prevails. It is therefore easy to see why lawlessness and open wickedness can prevail in underdeveloped communities and countries. In such environments, the rule of law is weak and immediate or easily linked punishment rarely follows some obvious crimes. Even so, punishment is guaranteed to follow in one form or another. The Bible and the Koran confirm this. Somehow, nature if thatâ€™s how you choose to look at it also firms that punishment will ultimately follow crime. The curse of underdevelopment we often see about us can be traced to pervasive wickedness in society or to tyranny in leadership. And so, let us not continue with any march of folly in wickedness. Our hidden economics for you.
