Ignorance

A lot of people see ignorance as an insult, a word with negative connotations. I don’t. I see ignorance as something perfectly natural. We are ignorant before we are educated about something. Before knowledge comes ignorance. In other words, the solution to ignorance is fairly simple, it is knowledge usually best achieved via education. The reason I feel this simple truth is worth harping on about is that a lot of problems in life, I believe, are mis-understood as problems when in fact they are just examples of ignorance (which we’ve already established is nothing negative, it’s just a state … Read The Full Article …
