What is one reason why someone would keep another person ignorant to the truth?
There are many reasons. But fundamentally it comes down to control. People keep information from each other because of control and the power that it gives. Now this may be done unconsciously without the intent of gaining any control, but essentially control is what is being harnessed when keeping people ignorant.
Think about it, you have invariably kept truths from children because you want to control the outcome of how they are raised or maybe want to maintain their innocence for as long possible. Whatever the intention may be, likely for the better, you have probably one time or another have manipulated, withheld, and/or told lies to children. Why? Again, to control the outcome.

What have you been arguing for this whole time?
Why is there segregation between that religion, this religion, my religion, your religion, when they’re all the same?
For one, it’s pride. Another reason, control. Yes, control…(More on that next time)
“…The strongest part of our religion today is its unconscious poetry.” – Matthew Arnold

People have many different opinions about religion, beliefs, and spirituality. Throughout history, and still to this day, people have fought over those differences. But with just a little understanding of how our beliefs aren’t all that different at all, it would make the world of difference on how people view the world. It would perhaps bring more peace rather than drudgery.
Here’s a video on The Naked Truth on religion. Watch it with an open mind. If you are capable in believing what you currently believe in, you can believe that the differences between different religions are all just an illusion. Continue reading “The Naked Truth On Religion”
