"While I am most definitely sympathetic when someone protests “It simply never occurred to me...” ultimately only slaves are not responsible for the language they use and the thought boxes they keep.
Precisely what is it you think you ‘know’ for certain? Exactly what
‘knowledge’ do you possess which is of such certainty and veracity that
it need never be seriously questioned or examined?
something never occurred to me it is simply because I decided the softer
easier way forward was to participate in groupthink and not question my
‘reality’. I alone am responsible for my curiosity quotient or lack
Since better answers do not come without asking better or different
questions, there is no one else to blame for our ignorance but us. Just
because I have been trained and conditioned to ‘believe’, rather than to
think, doesn’t mean I am incapable of thinking. What it does mean is I

own thought walls....
Knowledge, information, propaganda and belief, while all distinctly
different words with dissimilar meanings, are often conflated to mean
nearly the same thing. Or more accurately, the meanings and definitions
are blurred, combined and contrived in order to create a controlling
thought meme that is skillfully separated from reality and ‘truth’.
Herein is the problem as I see it, or at least a major issue that
greatly contributes to groupthink, the hive mind
and ultimately the
sacrifice of the ‘self’."...
