Imagine this, that we are all victims. But not victims of perpetrators but victims of ignorance?
Imagine also that from now on, we stopped blaming anybody or everybody for what goes wrong in our world. And we start blaming the ignorance, mine and yours, that has led to our problems.
This is a rather radical and controversial thought as it would mean that we would finally have to stop blaming such people as Hitler, Stalin and Pol Pot, our parents and ex-husbands for what they did and start attributing our past problems to ignorance.
If we agreed to this then, in my view, there would be a huge shift to reducing ignorance in the world.
I believe that my ignorance has a long way to go to be removed and maybe a realistic goal might be more about reducing it rather than perfectly removing it.
So from now on I will be focusing on reducing ignorance, especially my own.
