When we forget of prudence or simply leave it to the side of the road we get into the intricacies of recklessness, which leads us to the indiscretion to the unfortunate outputs and unnecessary tangles that put us in difficult situations. A reckless, when you visit the sick, he says without anesthesia: you must be careful. That have killed four people this week and that way your hospital visit leads to a contrary to the expected result. But much caution, prudence in excess can be harmful because it often leads to undesirable inaction, questioned negligence or sin by omission, contained in Chapter 4, Verse 17 of the book of James: who knows to do good and do not, commits sin. Prudence is, therefore, good counselor, but ceases to be a virtue, when there is the need to act and we take all the time in the world without a decision, which is another way of making a bad decision in the long run. Being prudent is a human expression and a way of opening up space in the world of chivalry, decency and healthy coexistence between all the occupants of the planetary spacecraft.
