MANASSEH’S FOLDER: The undiplomatic diplomat and

Manasseh has made his point. He has made so many valid points and the criticisms and lavish of praises that follows are also to be expected just that I would have wished that good people on this platform would make their point without raining insults. My confusion and question is, is respecting the elderly or if we like our leaders negotiable ? Must we respect them because that is what we have been taught by the sacred books to do or must they always earn our respect by exhibiting decent behaviours only ? Some of us on this platform are either parents or potential parents and I ask this question, would it be fair for your kids to disrespect you for misbehaviour as an infallible being? Dont we make unpardonable mistakes consciously or unconsciously? must we be disrespected because a human being has commited a blunder?
