I have been in my many studies, trying to assess what the greatest evil is among our people. I have studied us internally and externally...consciously and subconsciously...historically and culturally....scientifically and spiritually, and I have finally reached a pretty sound conclusion concerning what it is. In as much as i have taken all things into consideration in coming to this conclusion, I am sad to have to report that the greatest evil among our people is "INTELLECTUAL IGNORANCE". This sounds like a contradiction, but it isn't. "It is our ability to defend, justify and rationalize our own ignorance or state of not knowing". We have become masters of this from an intellectual perspective, and as such, it keeps us immobilized and stagnant in our existence collectively and personally. Anytime we can justify or make where we are at and how we are, and what we may or may not be doing sound logical, rational and have the intellect to defend that position and justify that position to others and ourselves..."we have no reason to grow, to change, to open our eyes and see, or our ears to hear so that we can change." There can be no greater evil among our people than this; for if we don't know, we can defend, rationalize and justify our not knowing. If we're not doing, we can defend, justify and rationalize our not doing. If we are or are not a certain way, we can defend, justify and rationalize our position on that. This takes INTELLECT TO DO...AND SINCE WE DON'T KNOW, I HAVE COINED IT AS "INTELLECTUAL IGNORANCE"...a very deadly and supreme evil among our people to not grow, to not change, to not hear, to not see, to not do...but to simply be as we are with the intellectual ability to defend, rationalize and justify our position. Yes, this is truely the GREATEST EVIL AMONG OUR PEOPLE TODAY...AN EVIL THAT MAY VERY WELL FIND OUR EXISTENCE TO BE ONE OF NON-EXISTENCE BECAUSE OF IT. Is there a cure or remedy for this? No there isn't. There is no known way to combat or fight this evil. For no matter what one may present, reveal, say or produce as proof of a truthful reality, the ability and power of intellectual ignorance is such that a person is able to RATIONALIZE, DEFEND AND JUSTIFY THEIR POSITION NO MATTER WHAT. THEREFORE MAKING THIS THE GREATEST EVIL OF ALL...AND AN EVIL THAT WE HAVE MASTERED LIKE A FINE ART.
