What is the difference between arrogance and ignorance?

Arrogance is the exaggerated sense of one’s own importance or abilities. Ignorance is the lack of knowledge, information or education. This is actually the definition of arrogance and ignorance in the dictionaries. But if you ask me, I will tell you with no hesitation, that there isn’t any difference between both adjectives. I will explain why…

There are many people who are sick with this “I, ME, and Myself” serious disease. They have this blown swollen “I”, every time they open that big mouth of theirs.

When you express an opinion of yours in the frame of a certain issue, and you talk very politely and you try your best to sound like a civilized person, based on the respect of an opinion and other opinions. Also based on the difference in opinion, doesn’t spoil the friendliness case. This is how a discussion or the freedom of speech should be based on, even if all parties disagrees.

Freedom is a great thing, but there is still a red line that freedom cannot cross and should show some respect, because Freedom means responsibility. The responsibility of each word coming out from your mouth.

You get into a discussion with a person, and once your opinion doesn’t match or copy paste his own opinion, he turns to a blocked toilet explosion in your face! And with all the arrogance in the world, he tells you: “Don’t you know who I am?”

I am the one and only expert in this universe in religion, politics, economics, medicine, engineering languages, et cetera, et cetera. et cetera… I and only I am blessed in all spheres of life and the universe. If you want, come and I will smash you with my general knowledge!

Hey Hey hey Mr. uncle knowledge, no smashing please…who are we to claim that we know every and anything in this life? who are we to provide information about stuff that we have no clue about? And what are we made from, to allow this sickness of arrogance and ignorance to attack our hearts and brains?

God raises the humble man; The same God who created you and created us, doesn’t love those who are arrogant, even if you were a scientist and you are guiding the world to a better life, but with arrogance because you think that your knowledge will make you ride the back of the people, then the hell to you and to your knowledge.

It doesn’t make any difference when you have the knowledge and you are arrogant; or you are ignorant and arrogant too. Both meanings lead to the same ugly result.

Life is simpler and shorter than all this false arrogance. All of us on this planet earth from the doorman to the King, we all go to the toilet and we sit on it to pee and shit. It is as simple as this!
