Great question, speaking out what probably every monk here feels now and then.

In earnest, The Importance of Being Socratic cannot be overvalued, IMO.

But on the other side, how many of us do have the talent to be really Socratic without looking harsh, annoying or rude?

It's a fine line there, and probably more often then not we do people less harm by giving them the fish and just telling them about the fishing rod then insisting on having them catch the fish by their own.
