Ignorance is a choice. There is no excuse to remain ignorant. These days there are so many options to learn… classes, libraries, bookstores, magazines, newspapers, online articles, ebooks.
Read. Research. Question. Learn.
I feel I need to add, don’t just read and research things that support your ideology because you could wrong. Read lots of things from various view points. Try to have an open mind about what you are reading and learning.
Ask if this is really true and where is the evidence to support it?
