A world beyond ignorance

Ignorance: a lack of knowledge, understanding, or information about something

It somehow sounds like ignorance is a condition that we are unaware of. It’s accidental. Being ignorant is no one’s fault.

I say bullshit.

Ignorance isn’t bliss, it is dangerous. You see, ignorance isn’t passive, it isn’t something that just happens to you. Ignorance comes from the verb to ignore: to intentionally not listen or give attention.

Intentionally!

Ignorance is intentionally choosing not to want knowledge, understanding, or information about something. Ignorance is looking the other way because something doesn’t fit into your worldview. Ignorance is dangerous because it turns people into liars. Ignorance breeds people that believe in alternative facts. Ignorance makes it okay to build a wall to keep others out. Ignorance supports the Muslim ban.

I’m just so tired of people defending ignorance.

Ignorance should no longer be ignored.
