Hitleresque Ignore-ance

The absence of two words in the English language hide knowledge and power from their inherent responsibilities to mankind. They are ignore-ance, ignoring things you already know, and hitleresque, not referring to the bad guy, but the failure to stand up for the victimized.

Ignor-ance usually implies a lack of due diligence. The driver of a car speeding through traffic is ignore-ant of the consequences. People who are over worked, over stressed, over stimulated, or under appreciated have an increased tendency to be ignore-ant of their circumstances. These people are at risk for hitleresque behavior, which has destructive economic consequences.

The use of Hitler’s name in this word is not for the purpose of vilification. Those who died in the holocaust left us a gift, the graphic knowledge of our responsibility to treat our fellow humans with dignity and respect. Hitleresque behavior is ignore-ant of that human connection, the idle disavowing responsibility for opposing subhuman behavior. Hitleresque behavior didn’t begin with Hitler, but this word gives the behavior a name. The name identifies a behavior whose disappearance will be a boon to humanity.
