Effectsof Ignorance on Society “Nothing in theworld is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.” -Martin Luther KingJr. Lackof experience and education caused by ignorance causes conflict, this resultsin social differentiation.
Ignorance effects society because of peoplesreligious perspectives, what they truly know about their own religion and howthey look at other people that believe in different religions. Ignoranceaffects people by differentiating them by their education. Last but not leastignorance of the people put a cultural gap between the individuals that areraised by their older generations who were between educated and not educated.It is a parent’s responsibility to teach their children on separating betweenwhat is moral and immoral, but when one is questioned about their beliefs,division truly starts to form. First of all, when people are misconceivedby their religious beliefs, many but not all are made by those who don’t knowmuch about what they are talking about. Ignorance is dividing humanity byreligion because of that’s what they have heard from their surroundings. Forexample, when a Christian man judges a Muslim man because of the falsehoodthings he heard such as, “Muslims don’t believe in Jesus”. That’s not correct, Muslims believe thatJesus was a prophet who was given a special message—injil, or the gospel—toconvey to all people (Farina 49).
He probably doesn’t know about this becausehe has never looked and read the Quran before. Knowing nothing but judgingeveryone is a result of ignorance. Secondly, when there is ignorance in thepicture, it is probably because of the ignorant ones who think that they arebetter than everyone and they know everything but there is a problem there. Infact, they almost know nothing. Because they think that they know everything,they don’t need any education. This makes people who are ignorant and smartdiffer.
For example, think about a Professor in a University and a person whodropped out from high school. If one puts them in front of a court everyonewill listen what the professor says not the guy who dropped out from highschool. The fact that they think they are smarter than everyone else makes themlook deficient on other people’s eyes. That’s what makes them antithesize fromother individuals. Lastly, the cultural difference betweenpeople who are raised by different types of parents is because of the ignoranceand the education level of the ones that are raising the children. If the adolescentsare not raised correctly because of their parents are high in ignorance theywill have a lot of cultural gap between other children who were raised by parentsthat were educated. For example when one goes to meet the two people who wereraised by different family’s, the one can see that the person with educatedparents has more knowledge in his or her speaking but the person who was raisedby ignorant parents has small word capacity and repeats himself or herself. “Wefollow Jere Behrman and Mark Rosenzweig (2002) and assume that a child’seducational attainment depends linearly on the educational attainment of eachof their parents (Edmother and Edfather), plus some unobserved pre-education’endowments’ (Ermish, Pronzato 6).
While it is hard to be specific about theconstituents of these ‘endowments’, thinking about them is important becausethey are likely to be correlated with parents’ education” (Ermish, Pronzato 6).The first of these are earnings endowments of each parent (Endowmother andEndowfather) that affect their hourly earnings, which in turn have income, timeallocation and bargaining effects on their children’s education, as isdescribed in the discussion of the effects of parents’ education(Ermish andPronzato 6). As defined here, earnings endowments reflect genetic inheritanceand pre-education environmental influences (Ermish, Pronzato 6). The educationlevel of the parents affects their kid by creating their point of view, culture,and responsibility.
To conclude, the ignorance of individualseffects society with differentiating them from the educated people. Ignorantpeople make their self’s look smaller next to the educated people with their poorjudgment. Ignorance causes poor a point of view in religion, people judge eachother by their belief before knowing anything about their nor other one’s denomination. Ignorance makes peoplethink that they know everything and they don’t have anything left to learn. Theydifferentiate other people that are educated by telling them they don’t knowanything and calling them dumb because they are still trying to learn new things.
Parents have a really conspicuous impact on their child’s life and their kidsinherit their lifestyle and their point of view. The individuals differentiateby their parent’s education level or ignorance.
