Can we live in a society free from prejudice?
Definitely NOT! As long as we are still living in this world full of material possessions and bitter people we cannot escape from people’s advance judgments. Why are people not rich with ideas? Instead they’re loaded with unnecessary buzz and rumors!
Prejudice is a negative word which also means prejudgment.Individuals who have high educational degree yet narrow minds are sometimes the very judgmental people. With the advanced studies that they had they’re expected to be more constructive when it comes to giving criticisms. Moreover, they should have wider understanding since they were able to go to school, educate themselves and become better individuals than those who don’t have the chance. It’s paradoxical because our expectation is not met. Instead, people who claimed to be educated ones are the people who are not observing and destroying the balance. They’re happy if they step on other people’s rights. They’re afraid that their power is overruled. People’s prejudices are sometimes the cause of conflicts and hatred.
Now my question is, if knowledge is not necessary for good judgment then what do you think it is? Leave it as a comment if you have an idea.
