The expectation of knowing

Sometimes it’s just plain stupid to expect someone to know something when you haven’t taught them anything and you brand the person idiotic and stupid based on what you know.

But then before you knew what you did know, you were taught about it from someone and at one point before that someone taught you, you were just as stupid as I was.

But you’ve forgotten, that you too learned what you know now from someone else. And you project an expectation of knowledge that I have not acquired based on you having learned it earlier and think you are brilliant.

Following this cycle though, the stupid person is not the one who doesn’t know but the one who judges. When you judge me as stupid because I don’t know, you’re judging yourself before you stepped out in the avenue of knowing.
