Well? Why does it happen?


I understand that if we keep ignorance uncheck in society a lot of danger would ALSO be unchecked with that, so in one way it makes sense to give people a backlash for the ignorance of others so that they can avoid deceiving others in the long run, I mean that's obvious for anyone with common sense

But I am talking just about simple comments on i guess topics such as history, religion, politics or science perhaps

Like I am not saying not to encourage the other person to research more into whatever base of assertion they're basing that opinion or comment on, but there is a BIG difference between correcting someone and then getting all TRIGGER-happy like if they did something morally or legally wrong.

But why does this happen? Is it just another way to show tough love to the person who needs to learn more on a certain subject matter about that particular statement or comment? And if so, are there alternative ways to convince a person that they need an education on that rather then going ape **** about it?

From your title:
Why crime should trigger people happy?
But back to your topic - some people are ignorant about such universally accepted basics that they can only trigger a head shake and rolling eyes. It's almost embarrassing to believe that such people actually exist, would find and register to Internet forums to ask such dumb questions, but have not a miniscule of common sense to just search for the answers alone.
There are seemingly "legit" questions that people on forums are happy to discuss, and there are questions that make everyone else stop and think: it is real? Is that a troll? How come that a person couldn't know that?
It's even worse when such persons come here and instead of asking makes just a bold statement and insist that's the truth...

While ignorance is defined as a lack of knowledge, education or understanding - motivated ignorance is when others choose not to educate themselves out of fear.
Motivated ignorance can be simply defined as when people don't want to know the facts.
A self-deception occurs when individuals believe false things with complete conviction.
Often, it is difficult to judge whether somebody is willfully ignorant or truly deluded, though.

Well why did I exemplify that a crime should happy trigger people?


Well because either it could have involved endangering someone or if we are talking victimless crimes, because it just cost the police more taxpayer money and wasted effort?


So motivated 'ignorance' I guess is the key here, huh?


But my question is, even people who don't know such universal concepts, is being hard on them still the key? Imo I wouldn't want to always be that way, it could do dis-service and provide the person who is trying to learn with more doubt or it is more likely to make them I guess overconfident

And by overconfident meaning that the person is more likely to feel like they're still right or correct and make themeselves feel like they're just being mobbed or ganged on.

According to officials crime happening makes people 69% more trigger happy but saying something dumb only makes them 62% more trigger happy so the question isn't even valid.

That's probably the correct equation lol


Anyway, do you have a theory regarding this? Could it also be that some people don't appreciate that it took them sometimes sacrifice to learn something properly and probably way more effort while someone thinks they immediately got something off the internet?

So may I ask what's the difference between motivated ignorance and intentional ignorance?
