Judging and Understanding -- Are these two mutually exclusive? I am more and more inclined to say they are. When I was managing my hostel in Montegro I wrote this.
|A Judge Who Doesn't Try To
In the United States it seems to be more and more common for judges to send teenagers to prison if they don't go to school.
A judge in Arkansas, Stacey Zimmerman, has been sending teens to jail for not going to school.
This is a very good example of judging, and punishing, someone rather than trying to undersstand them. Understanding why teens don't want to go to school, seems not to be a priority or judges in America With all their education, they were never taught the importance of understanding. Nor dd they learn much about psychology and human nature or human emotional needs and unmet emotional needs.
Major changes are needed in the foundamental institutions in the USA - for example the institutions of education and the so called justice system.

"It is easier to judge than understand. So why do we put such high value on judges!? Understanders have more value in society."
|Here is a link talking about judging and understanding
A large part of intelligence is the ability to understand. Yet we don't expect our judges in the court room to understand or to seek understanding. Instead, we expect and pay them to pass judgement. Do we then require that judges in society actually be intelligent? It certainly takes less intelligence to judge than to understand.
