Ignorance vs. Stupidity, My Personal Observations of Morals

Whew, this is a hard one. (Definitions are not from a dictionary but my own observations)

Ignorance is the lack of knowledge of a subject or idea.

Stupidity is the inability or willingness to learn about a subject or idea.

Morals are the personal beliefs, rules, and laws that govern our behavior.

Sound straightforward right, well not exactly.

There is Moral Ignorance and Moral Stupidity.

Then there is Ignorance of Morals and Stupidity of Morals.

So let’s apply my definitions to each.

Moral Ignorance- The lack of knowledge of subjects or ideas, due to personal beliefs, rules, and laws that govern out behavior.

Is this making sense?

Moral Stupidity- The inability or willingness to learn a subject or idea, due to the personal beliefs, rules, and laws that govern our behavior.

I know you’re catching on, right?

Ignorance of Morals- The lack of knowledge of subjects or ideas, namely the personal beliefs, rules, and laws that govern our behavior.

Aha, now I know you know what is coming next.

Stupidity of Morals- The inability or willingness to learn a subject or ideas, namely the personal beliefs, rules, and laws that govern behavior.

Whew, that was a lot.

 So, okay we know the definitions but what does it mean in the greater scheme of life?

Well, what is worse?

Ignorance or Stupidity and when it comes to Morals does it really matter?

I think if Society took the time to think about it carefully they may find themselves defined differently than they thought.

So if any of the above defines you which would it be?
