The Importance of Ignorance

Ignorance serves a purpose.  Without ignorance there would be no power. Without ignorance no one would be able to be taken advantage of without their consent.  For centuries ignorance has played a role in allowing a few to gain control of the majority.  It is true even today all over the world. Those that want power must depend on the ignorance of those that they want control over. Look at today’s events and the role that the media plays in distorting the truth as well as the pundits that assist in this distortion.  A good friend of mine once said that the truth is always somewhere in the middle.  Which is why we should avoid extremes.  Can truth be subjective?
