Ignorance is arguably one of the the biggest threats to our world.
It leads to misinformed judgement. It leads to cowardice and prejudice and jealously and hate and greed.
I do not wish for all people to agree with me or with one another. I do not wish for people to share my views or my beliefs. What I wish is for people to think for themselves, for people to use the phenomenal organs nestled inside their skulls, instead of blindly following the narrow-minded, short-sighted stereotypes presented to them in various forms and guises. Everything is a choice. You can choose. There is always a choice, always. It is true that every choice has a consequence. Be brave enough to accept responsibility for each decision, be brave enough to choose your own path.
You do not have to be submissive or obedient in your own mind.
