“…, then if they [the rulers (commanders) & judges] are acting foolishly [ܡܲܣܟܿܠܝ̣ܢ: offending], be ye reproving (showing to be wrong, convincing, rebuking) them justly, … & these shall be corrected (reformed, amended) that they should not again be being guided by the will of their souls.” (Addai 45:24-46:3 ). The Aramaic word masc-lin also means: "going astray, causing to fall; being offensive, injuring, doing wrong" or "sinning" (Roger Pearse Translation). Since we are in the computer or digital age, you can also do this easily by saving your rebukes and then copy and paste them to individuals, the President or members of Congress. You just may need to edit the message a little for each person or situation.
