When ignorance gets put into practice, becomes weaponized, becomes a propaganda product, then it is no longer simply the state of unknowing. It is malicious, malevolent, a clear and present danger to us all. Ignorance can no longer be tolerated on such grand, sweeping scales. It is MALIGNORANCE, a word that sums up 2016 better than any.
Malignorance is on the Right. And it’s on the Left. And it’s in the Center.
It is not just the problem with your opponents and your enemies. It is a problem for your allies, and for yourself.
It is in Trump, and it is in Clinton. It is exploited by politicians, corporate hucksters, ideological gurus and religious preachers.
Don’t be malignorant.
