Yes, many ignorant people do cherish that ignorance; they are afraid perhaps of changing, they are afraid if others become educated it will highlight their ignorance, etc. But what is harder to understand are people like you who deny that there is a problem or just don't want to see what the problem is. Wherever you are going (be it education or helping the poor), you can only get there from where you are (by seeing the truth and finding solutions that use that truth).
Walter and Theodore are telling us where we are (the truth).
