from the mind of critic-1/3/18

From the mind of critic: “If we really hate something but don’t know anything about it, are we ignorant? If we know some things but not the whole picture, are we ignorant? If we espouse knowledge to evidence our hatred, but that knowledge is based on false claims and assumptions, are we ignorant of our ignorance? Does new knowledge scare us, or because of low self-esteem and low self-worth , are we afraid to admit a lack of knowledge? Are we afraid of the phrase, I don’t know? Some of us grow out of the teenage know-it-all phase, some don’t, and some of us are stuck in the middle. They say the more we know, the more we find out we don’t know. If we don’t allow this natural evolution to take place, where we absorb knowledge throughout our journey, negatiivity will grow, which will fester into hatred of anybody or anything that’s different, disagrees or challenges us. This happens specifically because we think we know everything, and the other person doesn’t. Hate groups always sprout amongst ignorance, as do despotic and facist governments. Are we ignorant of this in 2018, enough to defend child molestors, abandon moral beliefs and treat others like we would not like to be treated? What about in 2020, when it comes time to re-elect the ultimate physical example of that ignorance?” 🙂
