ignorance and malevolence

“Ignorance and malevolence are united in a single root; the latter benefits surreptitiously from the advantage it draws from the former. I do not know which is the more hateful. In itself, ignorance is, of course, no crime. It begins to be suspect when it pleads sincerity; for sincerity … is hardly an explanation and is never an excuse. And malevolence never fails to plead ignorance as an attenuating circumstance.” – Igor Stravinsky
