In keeping with the attitude in my post about short attention spans, I’d like to suggest that the willfully ignorant needn’t waste their time reading this blog page. We live in an amazing age. We have the whole of human history and the sum total of human wisdom available literally at our fingertips, and yet, so few of us avail ourselves of this great blessing. This is especially true when it comes to educating ourselves. Heck, I wonder how many people even know what the word, ‘education,’ actually means. I bet they don’t — because they’re ignorant. The sad part is, most of us have been made ignorant by the fruits of our parents’ labors; and now, the same people who made us ignorant are using the fruits of our labors to keep us ignorant. We have sold ourselves into this deception so well that we have actually become foot soldiers in defending the world of ignorance they have built around us. Thus, they have made the vast majority of us into their slaves, and we embrace it as liberty — because we are ignorant. It’s how people could read, “Arbeit macht frei,” and believe it’s true!
The Truth is, we live in a time unlike any other in human history. This is truly the golden age of information. Sadly, however, too few avail themselves of the availability of this information. For the majority of Americans, we literally have the whole of human history, and the sum total of human wisdom in our pockets. But what do we do with it? Do we use it to better ourselves? No, we use it to entertain ourselves. Even when we use our cell phones to watch the news, we are just distracting ourselves. Why do I say this? Because too few of us have used that phone to learn about what true journalism is and what it looks like. So, when we watch the news, we believe we’re informing ourselves when — in fact — we are gobbling up misinformation and deception. We have followed down this path for so long now, we have actually become active participants in our ignorance. We consuming lies out of ignorance, then we eject Truth for the same reason. Both are the work of willful ignorance.
This is the crux of our problem: you cannot enslave the mind of an enlightened person, and you cannot free the mind of a person who is willfully ignorant. ‘They’ know this. It’s why ‘They’ work so hard to keep you ignorant: so you won’t revolt. Well, in this day and age, if a person is ignorant, it is because they have chosen to be that way — period! Therefore, if a person is a slave out of ignorance, they have chosen to be a slave. This is why the willfully ignorant are not welcome here. I will work myself to the point of exhaustion to help a sincere person learn, but I will no longer waste a second of time on a person who has chosen to remain a slave. What’s more, I will be openly hostile to those who seek to force me or others into slavery with them. There are only four lights — 4! I will never tell you there are five, so you might as well get the cage and the rat out, I am not going to join you in your ignorance. If you think that sounds harsh, fine; but the type of people I want following me will not only understand that I’m not being a ‘hater,’ they’ll know I’m actually writing out of an agape love for those who are trying to find The Way.
