Ignorance – Blog No. 20

ignorance-in-business-unethicalIgnorance is a choice.  As is refusing to believe a fact when it is irrefutable.  Fortunately facts abound in our world.  They provide stability, a framework.  Lay-people should not be so afraid of them, they are tried and tested – each one.  Facts can be relied upon.  They are there for you to use, so use them wisely.  It is pointless ignoring them.  That is choosing to be stupid.  No one should choose to be stupid.  Ignorant is not the same as stupid.  There is a marked difference.  Ignorance is curable.  Stupidity is often terminal.

Should you currently find yourself in challenging circumstances do not plead ignorance as to the whys or whens of these tricky situations.  You have brought them to yourself.  They have arrived because you needed to learn something new.  It is simpler to accept lessons when they come, trust that there is a reason.  Lessons occasionally bend you out of shape.  They push your boundaries.  This is not a problem.  Stretching through learning is worth every squeak and groan of the expanding infrastructure in your mind.  When you begin to eradicate your ignorance through deliberate effort you will find that your life opens up immeasurably.  You will find that you start to care more about the world in which you live because you understand it better.

Educate your children.  Then teach them to have patience with ignorance.  There are a lot of ignorant people on this planet and the children are the ones who are going to have to remedy this situation.  It is the next generation that is going to carry that load.  As a people we should think more about what we are consigning to our kids.  The society they are set to inherit is not looking good.  It is going to take a monumental effort on the part of those currently in power to make this different.  One would hope that those currently in power understand their responsibility.

  1. In 1971 I am in eighth grade. I do not know what the future is to be or not to be. But my principal who is a WW2 vet keeps me in school so I have a chance to use my education to do something, to make something. So here now forty years later, I pay to publish this book, Raise the Flag, about a journey for education. purpose, and career while overcoming duress, treachery, and adversity. But look look how education prevails and read book, Raise the Flag, made in USA.
