Weaponized Ignorance = Army of Useful Idiots


We currently live in a world where the things that we do not know, or are ignorant to the details of, are becoming a detriment to American society. Allow me to explain by saying that the average persons’ lack of engagement and knowledge of current societal events has created mass ignorance that has reached the level of “weapons grade” This weaponized ignorance is being used to manipulate the mind of the individual through a campaign by our national institutions (Universities, Hollywood, Local, State, and Federal Governments, so called “Mainstream Media”) by exploiting this ignorance on a grand scale. This ignorance has been created and perpetuated by those that are interested in making us all property of the state, and taking the rights of the individual completely out of the picture. These institutions have set out to create a false premise in which to demonize the founding of America by accusing our founders of stealing from others and violating human rights by allowing slavery.


The history books are being rewritten and our children are being fed blatant lies about the origins of this country. This mischaracterization of what America stands for, along with narratives advocating class warfare, and a hatred for those that are successful and wealthy, creates world views that are based solely on a false narrative. This creates a view of the world that is wrong, not because it is a different opinion, but because its foundation is based on lies. This ignorance is a fatal flaw in our society as it allows for manipulation of Government, laws, and even societal mores and the cause/effect relationship that they have to everything around us. For example, how does one know an act that is unconstitutional if that person has never actually read the constitution?   How does someone know the role of the courts and the Judicial Branch if they aren’t familiar with the supreme law of the land (The US Constitution)? People are ignorant to the meaning of words like communism, socialism, fascism, treason, sedition, and the like. These terms are being used by people that do not understand the meaning or the context in which they are meant to align with historically. As a result, words tend to lose their meaning over time because they are thrown out there so loosely, and in so many different circumstances, that the meaning is watered down, and the context is completely lost.


Useful idiots parroting catch phrases and bumper sticker slogans with understanding the literal or symbolic meaning. Useful idiots was a term used by Vladimir Lenin, as he understood the need for these sycophants in order to retain and wield power and authority. Useful idiot is defined: “An individual that fights for a cause that he/she does not fully understand”. They do not understand because things like economic inequality and constitutional rights are complex issues and their world view is based off of an assumption that leads to a single finite conclusion. In other words, their understanding of an issue is an oversimplification of a complex, multifaceted concept with many intricacies and nuances. This perceived understanding of an issue, however flawed, makes the person feel intelligent. The problem here is that the individual does not understand “why” they believe as they do, so when their view is challenged, they are not capable of arguing in favor of their position. I am OK with people having different views on various issues, but I expect them to be able to explain why they believe it and put up a valid defense of their position. We have descended into the Twilight Zone, as this mass ignorance is perceived by the ignorant as being evidence of intellect. God help us.
