"The most violent element in society is ignorance" is one of Emma Goldman's most famous quotes. A quote so muddied in American history - and perhaps now more than ever - which might be worth revisiting in the post-Trump era where the highest levels of ignorance resulted in shocking violence against American people.
Goldman was a political activist and writer who emigrated to the U.S from Russia in 1885. She was ahead of her time, playing a pivotal role in the growth of political philosophy on anarchism. Far from ignorant at a time when women were expected to be so, Goldman's quotes and writings live on with such relevance over a century later.
Violence is caused by ignorance. Ignorance is caused by lack of learning and education. Knowledge is power, and education is key.
