DISCLAIMER: To be perfectly honest, this is not going to be one of those blogs for the faint of heart and soul. Nor is it going to be appealing to those of you that are bleeding heart liberals. I never want to be considered to be on one side or the other when it comes to politics. Yet I do not now, never have, and never will, side with those that wish to take the worlds problems onto their shoulders and then babysit them. I am more of the “let’s figure out the problems and get them solved to strengthen the worlds resolve” type. I have mentioned sometime ago that I do not baby myself, nor do I intend to do so with anybody else. I would be the doctor that may get questioned on his bedside manner while being revered for his great results.
Now that I have that out-of-the-way here goes.
I was at work the other day and it appeared to me the question of the day should be; which is worse ignorance or stupidity. Just because I was at work does not mean I am indicating that I believe all my co-workers to be either. It is, however, a thought that comes to me while trying to do my job. Not so sure what that should tell you about me. I do seem to have higher expectations than most. Not considering myself to be God’s gift to the working class, I do have a problem with the work ethic of others. Not all others mind you, it is just more and more that list does appear to grow.
So, which is worse ignorance or stupidity. Ignorance it would seem breeds stupidity. The more ignorant a person is the more stupid he/she seems to get. For the record I view stupidity as: “the act of learning anything and not caring enough to let it soak in.” Whereas ignorance is: “not having learned anything in the first place.”
Disclaimer II: For the record nothing gets on my nerves more, and makes me angrier than my own acts of stupidity or ignorance.
