Voices on the Wind Voices of Protest
Hating ignorance by Lars Samson Life churns up contradictions and improbabilities so regularly, facts end up arguing and thinking stalls. Living gleefully upends certainties. Giggling at each new exception. Majority thinking doesn’t help. Spending less time thinking than ensuring everyone agrees. Ruled by fables our minds have whispered since before cognition. Purchased discourse is worse and priced the inverse of its likely truth. Its repeated repeated words no more true than their unknown speakers. Still, some “truths” seem possible. Like: Murder is wrong. Yet some disagree. Maybe frightened of any certainty. Or unable to hear over the chanted rites. Maybe it’s greed or simply ignorance. Neither open to reason and hiding their own. How can you hate someone you don’t know? How can you hate someone who doesn’t know? How can our hate hurt anyone but ourselves?
