anarkandi.

I'd respectfully submit you have incorrectly titled this thread -
Ignorance is lack of knowledge which can be rectified with the intellectual learning process.

Fascism, on the other hand is NOT a matter of ignorance. It is primarily a matter of lack of empathy. Empathy isn't learned at the intellectual level, but at a more fundamental level than the intellect. Additionally it is a political ideology/system and the overarching attribute is control. Control of others, specifically.

Nucky, Nice link, I wasn't aware of the history.

I knew about the Woody Guthrie connection, but I didn't know that it originated in the Spanish civil war.

Hmm. You could argue for that, but really, I'd say fascism is often a result of lack of knowledge as empathy is also a form of knowledge and a state we achieve when we understand others around us and see that they reflect good things, gifts that we both share that are valuable. Pens have decreased fascism and violence and ignorance, the written word makes people care more about how they phrase themselves as they have to think more before they write, so the message becomes more logical and the person writing has to listen more to his/her own thoughts since they appear right in fron of him/her on the paper.

Machines don't kill fascists...people kill fascists. Wink Or maybe spiritual awakening kills fascists? I don't know of any fascists or former fascists to ask?
I love the pencil.
