I understand what denying ignorance means now. Denying ignorance has two steps. Denying ignorance is knowing what's a lie and then in turn knowing
what the truth is. I have found that there are several ways of denying ignorance.
You can deny ignorance by not showing apathy to a topic of concern that is having an effect on the nation you're living in or on the world state. If
you act like you don't care about an issue you're not denying ignorance you would be perpetuating it.
I also have gotten in trouble with not denying ignorance myself when I've been surfing the web. Sometimes when I surf the web I come to a site and I
don't read the site carefully enough and I'll be ignorant about something that was said on the site. Not knowing that what was on the site was
false I might say something that isn't accurate. Denying ignorance is something that is really helpful to do when one surfs the internet. Cause, if
you run into a bad site and you believe every word of it for its face value, the chances are, that you're probably going to get scammed unless you
look at it closely.
I've denied ignorance about the way I talk. I find that it's important to tell the truth in every situation that I am in. I know that there are
cases where people can lie and lies can work. I also know that people that are unsure about themselves may lie because they don't want to say the
truth because they don't know what people will think about what they say. I've denied ignorance in this sense by making an effort to pay attention
to what I say and how it has an effect on other people. I am denying ignorance here by caring.
I am denying ignorance by not being ignorant myself about what I think is important and what I think isn't important. I may think that something is
completely irrelevant to me but if I deny ignorance say that irrelevant thing-- may not be so irrelevant to me-- if I realize what the impact it has
on me is.
We need to deny ignorance in our entire life. Not just here on ATS. But so we can stare society in the face, so we can overcome subliminal
advertisements that are pretty much everywhere, and so we can keep ourselves from falling into common pitfalls that other people happen to get into
because they are apathetic towards others and they don't deny ignorance.
I believe I now truly understand what it means to deny ignorance.
