Clueless: (adj) having no knowledge, understanding, or ability.
No knowledge: Hardly seems likely. In this information age, a decision to go without knowledge has to be a purposeful dodge to avoid it. It’s feasible, but even if we’re trying to escape, some of the volume still pierces our defenses. Therefore it’s difficult to use “no knowledge” as an excuse for avoiding responsibility.
No understanding: The ability to interpret the circumstances around us and come up with a suitable solution does require engaging our souls. If we’re just looking into a pool of self-interest or trying to ignore becoming connected with the people around us, we can certainly pretend we did not understand the severity of the situation.
Yet if you’re around someone who’s crazy and they threaten to do something drastic, it is unlikely that you can claim ignorance of the crime.
No ability: We might lack expertise. Expertise is achieved when we take the ability we have and teach it to be useful.
The concept of “natural talent” is humorous. The idea that our ability arrives intact and ready to go is mind-boggling.
Ability demands an obstacle course before it can be classified as capable of overcoming obstacles.
Clueless is a choice.
Attempting to remove oneself from knowledge, understanding and ability might temporarily give us the free pass of grace, but ultimately exposes us as charlatans who run away from the heat of the battle.
