Can folly be removed?

Solomon says flogging people is a good way to make people less simple-minded. He says you can cure your child’s folly by beating your child with a rod.

But later, he says no matter how much you crush and pulverize fools, you can’t remove their folly. After all, the Bible says witless people becoming wise is as impossible as a donkey giving birth to a human.

That would have been nice to know earlier, Solomon. You mean I ground my children to dust with a mortar and pestle for nothing?
