What I hateThe anger it brings to me,The suffering it brings to men,In fables told, it brings bliss,In truth it causes amiss.It is ignorance I speak of,For I see it free and fro.In ideal, i wish it gone,For without ignorance,We are already free.
This was some poem that i wrote for some assignment, but with a new quote that i read from a really smart man, i have formed a thought! (surprising eh...)
Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.
I shit you not, that's what he said.
I believe i have traced all avoidable suffering, that we all bring upon ourselves to one thing, and you have guessed it - IGNORANCE, or to the laymen, stupidity
Just think about it.....
The poor suffer because they do not know the power they have.
That is a form of ignorance right there, and that is also quite a large chunk of human suffering.
The Afghans suffer, because they are mislead by the Taliban into thinking that they serve the will of God.
They are ignorant of what God really wants.
The common people are oppressed by their governments cuz they do not realize how many share their thoughts, and of the power they actually wield.
Ignorance, the only plague other than disease.
