The question is asked here in different forms. When will people learn l-o-a or why isn't everyone enlighten. We often quote "When the student is ready the teacher will appear"
Shouldn't we teach/preach that stupidity and ignorance are wrong ?
Yes, why not? If someone wants to be that way, then why do you want to stop them.
If you want to, then go right ahead. But, I have now met enough people in my life to confidently say that what Abraham Hicks have said has proved to be true again and again.
"Words don't teach, it is life experience that teaches"
People seem to learn and listen when they make mistakes and get it wrong. So, unless someone has really given up on their stupid ways which has not achieved anything for them in life, then they will not be ready to listen to your words of wisdom and integrate these words into their lives.
The other very important point that Abraham Hicks make in relation to teaching others is that the best way is to:
Essentially, if people see that you are thriving and living a life where you are getting everything you want and you are always happy, don't you think that they will start to follow your footsteps and then maybe even harass until you teach them the key to your thriving, in your case, not being stupid...
What i often realize is that generally happy people don't care much about who is stupid or intelligent (no offense here to anyone). As i had depressions many years ago i always talked about how stupid humanity is and made sarcastic jokes about it in a George Carlin style. And i felt a bit of relief in me like when i do the abraham processes today to feel good. But it was not anywhere near the vortex feeling that i feel today. I still felt bad back then.
Now i realize that wanting to judge others and saying they are stupid is just wanting to be superior and wanting to compensate the own unhappiness and insecurity. It's the same as if i believed in one religion and wanted everyone to believe what i believe.
Imo that comes from a scarcity mindset. Someone like that fears that the own belief and faith could turn out be false if someone had very good arguments and convincing charisma. So he judges and hates to ignore and protect his own belief.
After all who is to judge which person is stupid and which is intelligent? One could say that IQ determines the intelligence of a person. Someone else could say it is something else like EQ (emotional intelligence). Also one could say that pigeon-holing someones intelligence is stupid.

No, we shouldn't teach that ignorance is wrong, because that would be equivalent to not believing in the Law of Attraction anymore.
As mentioned before many times on this site, sometimes it is better to ignore what is going on in the outside world so that it will not be able to negatively influence you. For instance, if there is a war going on in another country or natural disaster happening, as long as you do not focus on these events, you would be less likely to attract something of similar nature. If you choose not to ignore these events and focus on them instead, then you would need a very strong willpower and belief for these events to not affect you in any way at all.
For the other questions, I don't have much opinions on them so I shan't comment on them.

Stupid is as stupid does. some times stupidity can be an experience of lack of caring, and if the soul needs this, then it is valid. So it is not that we should praise stupidity itself. But praise ALL experiences.
love n light
I want to answer this question with a quote from Abraham. To me, it says it all.
Let others vibrate as they vibrate and want the best for them. Never mind how they're flowing to you. You concentrate on how you're flowing. Because one who is connected to the Energy Stream is more powerful, more influential than a million who are not.

what you call stupid is simply some one that is at a lower level of understanding and truth. or it is a judgement from your part, and if it is a judgement from your part you will be judge to the same mesure. so make sure that it is not a judgement. because if you are passing judgement and you know you should not judge, and you are not in the truth then are you the one that missed something? then should we call you stupid? you judge by humen standard. in that case you probably see only the outside of the cup. who is with out sin to cast the first stone? why do you have a heart of stone? what do you think stone represent? is it not judgement? for anny of you that judge and have a heart of stone,here is my advice meditate go with in and lift that stone and properly split that pieces of wood and you will find me there. will also add every one as free will and are responsible of it. you probably would not like being called stupid because you do not do as someone else does or because you do not see things in the same way that someone else see things. yes move from ignorance to truth and understanding. so let there be light be the light that you can be experience and enjoy.
You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye. http://bible.cc/matthew/7-5.htm
"Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You clean the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of greed and self-indulgence. http://bible.cc/matthew/23-25.htm
Split a piece of wood; I am there.
Lift up the stone, and you will find me there."
57 Jesus said, "The Father's kingdom is like a person who has [good] seed. His enemy came during the night and sowed weeds among the good seed. The person did not let the workers pull up the weeds, but said to them, 'No, otherwise you might go to pull up the weeds and pull up the wheat along with them.' For on the day of the harvest the weeds will be conspicuous, and will be pulled up and burned."
He said to them, "Anyone here with two ears had better listen! There is light within a person of light, and it shines on the whole world. If it does not shine, it is dark."

in both the original quotes the refer to actions take out of ignorance that harm others, so in that context no, it is not ok to be happy while you are a Nazi killing Jews out of ignorance. it is ok to be intellectually stupid as long as you are not harming others with your actions.

You're swinging double edged sword here. You will cut people with one edge, yet you will fall on the opposite one yourself.
For sake of understanding I'll become a hypocrite now.
On this stage of world and in this play of life, everybody's on their own. They have always been and always will be. Why then should you bother about groups of any kind.
You are a free soul. But apparently you let yourself into slavery of attachment of your current situation in hopeless attempt to belong, and this illusion of conformity that society creates provides just that. Sense of belonging, appreciation.
You know, I, just as anyone but with a bit more of specific and clear realization in sense that I can call the name of things that bother me, want to be loved. In my reality, during the day, this desire is not getting fulfilled, so I sometimes feel distressed. Sometimes I compensate for feeling of sadness by making counter decision. It's a temporary relief. And most of the time regrets follow even seemingly good decisions or I create a situation of much worse proportions.
But sometimes it happens, that during the time I sleep, I dream a dream where this desires gets fulfilled. And quite interestingly I can let go all the superficiality that I live with by day.
My dreams have showed me that what I know from 'real life' is no more real than what is in my dreams.
The point is, you should not worry about whether any group of religious, political or whatnot community influences anything at all. It takes the focus away from YOUR life. If you let go of all these nonsense bonds that only creates emotional turbulence you will know taste what freedom feels like. No situation, no community or family members will hold you prisoner through various emotional ties. You will only feel what you want to feel like.
You got starring role in the movie called 'your life', enjoy it. Be whoever you want, maybe someone, maybe a little bit of everyone. Be a hero, villain, background noise and the guitar solo, be the actor and the observer and most of all, enjoy it. And should you not like it, you can always ascend.
And as for feeling appreciated and loved, nobody else, no society or group of people can provide. In sense, that you will never have enough this way. It's just like drugs, once you taste being loved, you can't get enough. But this love, as anything after all, has to be yours. Your of own appreciation of yourself. Anything else is bound to fail at some point.
Let stupid be stupid, it's the role they wanna play. Let everything be. And enjoy the show.
