A phrase used to describe the blind beliefs of any institution or state where someone is told to believe something without evidence or reason and where that ignorance is then passed on to others (because they believe the lies they have been told) and becomes self-perpetuating.
'Nationalism is a form of self-perpetuating ignorance where we are taught to hate the 'other' or outside group.'

'No you cannot convert me to your religion, I have no desire to be a part of your cult's self-perpetuating ignorance.'
