is global ignorance the most insidiously treacherous threat to the continuation of human life?
If you think "not," what do you think is?
I have many thoughts on the subject. Do you?
If yes, what are they!
I don't contribute it to just ignorance alone, because each of is ignorant in some aspect of life.
I do contribute it to "chosen" ignorance, as I've already written about. Those who "choose" to remain to be ignorant instead of continuing to learn more about themselves and life in general are the ones who are becoming detrimental to growth and expansion of humanity, as a whole.
I agree that is one aspect. Self imposed ignorance is the choice of many.
Education tho, is a rarity amongst the majority of existing humanity.
It is just not available and human population is burgeoning.
The potential to become "educated" will diminish to an even greater degree.
I'd like to read the "hub" you mentioned.
Can you cut and past it for me? thanks
I would agree that "education" is diminishing, but the only way to fix that problem is make people more consciously aware that others are actually stunting their development.
Once you open one person's eyes, it begins a process that will not be easily reversed. The problem stems from those in power and usurped positions, because they need illiterate people to control.
Here is the hub:

What is your take on human ignorance?Two examples:The Seeker escaped from a dark and cold perpetual cave. He goes out to the sunlight then returns to his friends still in chains in this dark cave. He speaks of the Light and encourages them to follow him. They refuse. Would they have done so if they...
