Truth -- 98 percent of you had no idea who the hell he even was before a few days ago, and all but one or two of have been largely ignorant of the diplomatic situation between the United States and Iran for at least 39 years now.
Excepting a few false factoids and buzzwords like “Benghazi,” and “ISIS” and “Muslims,” 98 percent of you are almost entirely clueless in regard to the intricacies of the geopolitical situation in the Middle East as a whole. You can claim otherwise all you want, but you simply haven’t been paying attention, and the bottom line is, you haven’t given a shit.
Proof is, if you actually gave a shit, and if you actually understood what's going on, you wouldn’t be so sure in your convictions, whatever they are.
If you gave a shit, you would understand that you might be wrong — or the false prophets you parrot might be wrong.
You’ve now seen a bunch of memes, and maybe even some hastily-composed semi-factual articles in the last few days, and a cloudburst of bullshit propaganda has been dumped on top of them. About 98 percent of those creating the memes, articles and propaganda also have no idea what they’re talking about — just like you don’t.
I’m asking everyone to take a few breaths and shut the hell up for a while and try to observe and learn something from non-reactionary sources. After digesting that information — and also taking a look at the immediate and potential long-term unintended consequences as they unfold — then perhaps you can present a reasonable, thoughtful, educated opinion.
My guess is most of you won’t, you’ll simply go back to your natural default position of not giving a shit. And that is OK with me, as long as you shut the hell up about things you know nothing about.
If you're not going to take the time to educate yourself, at least be considerate enough to stop mis-educating everyone else.
Knowledge is earned. Ignorance is contagious.
