Reader comments about this quote:
The good people of N. America suffer greatly from this disease. We remain wilfully ignorant because for some reason we actually believe what the main stream, corporate elite, media tells us to believe. Despite common sense. Everyone wants to believe out of a sense of patriotism. But the truth follows the money. Always follow the money.

    I would not insult the medical profession in saying that unethical behavior is a disease - if you are pretending then you know what you are doing, unless of course you are a pathological liar. Mind you, we have a number of those suffering from this disease in high places.

    One of the best compliments I ever got at work was when someone told me, "You're the only person around here who'll tell me 'I don't know'."

    That is why religion is a disease.
     -- Bert, Timbuktu     
    Bert, Timbuktu, please define "religion" then the disease can be exposed. Threskeia or Threskos ? A collectivist statist theocracy, whether church or state, would fall under the first.

    Most Do Not "know" the state of "know" they exist in. 
    Eido vs Ginosko, knowledge. Great point Ken, Allyn, WA.
     -- Ronw13, OR     
    Bert, knowledge of our Father's spirit is unique to he who has faith  the truth thereof heals. Religion outside truth, love, knowledge, etc., such as a pretend ethical / moral belief in socialism, is in fact, a disease, especially when ignorance of the spirit attempts to set forth pretend knowledge.
