Last year’s Dilbert desk calendar had things on the back of the pages, to do lists, fun facts, puzzles, qoutes, etc. This little gem by Laurence J. Peter showed up one day. He is the 20th century educator best known for creating The Peter Principal (“In a hierarchy every employee tends to rise to his level of incompetence … Work is accomplished by those employees who have not yet reached their level of incompetence”).
Ignorance is some strong armor. There isn’t much that can penetrate it; not logic, not data. Ignorance of a situation makes people afraid and paralyzes them to inaction or indecision. As another wise philosopher once said, “Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate…leads to suffering.”
The best we can do is to keep fighting the good fight and not let ourselves to get sucked into their dark, fearful world.
