Ignore-Rant

Ignore-Rant

Ignore-Rant: A two-timing, despicable, and an undoubtedly dangerous word, vastly perpetuated, to the best of my knowledge, by humans.

It’s like a shield, some cover, a hide away from the truth that humans run under, when dodging glaring facts with the acquired illusion of knowledge that was seemingly bestowed by mouths that were scared of the unique difference existing among them.

In our laziness and complacency, we became incomplete because of our informed lessons, thereby choosing to go with the flow of what was passed down from ages past.

We have become uninteresting because we became uninterested in learning the new things that as a whole, built up spheres and communities. I mean, even with the Degrees and PhDs, we have become selectively endangered by a difference that existed of its own accord, of its own free-will.

We choose the easy way out, to Ignore first, then Rant second, thinking that this vile, despicable wretch called Ignorance is as good as the side-glance knowledge drenched in uncommon sense winding its way, effectively and tenaciously into the cores of walking Sapiens – dead and walking Sapiens – because we fail to read.

We became generic people, with generic knowledge, that give generic responses when asked generic questions because we fail to ask the right questions.

We fail to unlearn, and step out of the cocoon we created for ourselves. We have become frightful because our ignorance is always in motion.

The First Law of Inadequate Education is Ignorance. It is nonsense embedded in the arrogant impatience of the Confident.

Take heed though – because Ignorance certainly isn’t bliss. If it were, we’d all be happy.

But!

It is never too late to become young.

You probably don’t understand that.

It. Is. Never. Too. Late. To. Learn.

    Forgive me, I’ve been talking too much here – online generally – but I just want to add this to this brilliant article.

    Ignorance is a choice. But in the context of the interactions of this community with others, we (I) can do more to make it an informed choice by teaching others, stirring, fuelling and participating in conversations and honestly answering questions.

    Nature ordained us custodians of this kind of knowledge. Teaching is a spiritual duty.
