Ignorance Is Not Bliss

 Are you ready to have this primary season over with?  I think the only ones who are not are die hard Hillary fans because she is still plugging along pulling out all the stops including use the fear factor to try and get people to vote for her.  The other day Hillary said she would be willing to use nuclear weapons on Iran if they become a threat in the Middle East.  Wow that really shows ignorance as far as I am concerned.  Is She as cold hearted as the Bushites?  That to me is just a plain unconscious thing to say, as if the lives of people don’t matter.    This thinking is the good old big stick of centuries of male dominance and the ego determination for power.  

When are we as human going to evolve past killing as our major weapon for resolving issues?  Do we have to kill people who we disagree with?  Or could we talk and find common ground?  There most be something each side needs from the other and that could be worked out.   The thinking that threat is a good way to control others has been around for centuries.  Isn’t it time to sit down and figure what is best for everyone?  Nuclear weapons are for people who don’t have the intelligence to figure problems out.  I guess they think bombing the life out of them is a solution.  It is a solution only if you do not truly value human life.

When are we going to think from our heart, from a higher knowing than the ego and greed level?  Are you with me on this that we need to evolve to raise our consciousness?  We are all on this tiny speck in the giant universe and we can’t even get along.  What a sad example of humanity war is and it just seems to be always brought up as if it is a viable option.  It is as if we can’t see any further or act any wiser than the ego driven, power hungry war mongers from the past.  

I trust we have greater wisdom than that.   What do you think?  Are we doomed to kill us all or is their light enough in the world to save humanity?  I think there is more than enough light.  

I say we tune out everyone who talks of hate, enemy and war.  If they have to we could give them a small island where they could all go beat the crap out of each other and maybe they would eventually wise up after getting hit in the head enough?

Sorry that isn’t really a good idea but frankly there is a serious need to wake people up and a 2X4 on the side of the head lacks the humanity and consciousness needed.  What will help wake people up?  

I think having a heart and compassion for others is important.  Also asking questions, become more aware and conscious of our higher knowing and the innate goodness of your fellow humankind.  There are many more common needs, desires and concerns across cultures and belief systems than there are differences.  We are all much more connected than different.

Your thoughts and ideas are valued.  Positive change is needed and we are the architects.  What designs do you have in mind to make the world a better place for everyone?

The ignorance of one voter in a democracy impairs the security of all.

We allow our ignorance to prevail upon us and make us think we can survive alone, alone in patches, alone in groups, alone in races, even alone in genders.

The highest form of ignorance is when you reject something you don't know anything about.
