ignorance is bliss
is being ignorant to the strife, problems and basically all other critical issues a load off your mind?
Our education is the only thing that divides us from being mindless drones like in North Korea. Education is what creates progress, and education is what solves problems. If we did not know about this privacy thing then we would not know about this breach of our rights, we would be blind submissive slaves, exploited and used for the purposes of others. For while we do not know about these issues, some other people, those that created it, do. This divide would give advantage to others, because knowledge is power, and if we do not know and someone else does, then we are less powerful and at a disadvantage.
@legionofthedamned, but those who live in ignorance of it all are not burdened by those issues they do not know, sure someone can take advantage of this but seeing as a person does not know it they technically arent affected by it :)
Ignorance is bliss, but bliss isn’t everything.
ignorance is always going to be bliss. That does not mean bliss is what we should desire and certainly does not mean that bliss is what we will benefit from.
The people of North Korea are just like us. Don’t matter what the media tells us. Don’t matter what their gov does. We are all the same no matter where we live. We are all souls in this world, all the same, seeking for the truth of ourselves.
TRUE Bliss has nothing to do with bliss as what we think it is.
@aeiouwstd, and Australia is the most blissful country on Earth!
@aeiouwstd, sorry man, but in my opinion ignorance is madness,
Ignorance IS Bliss…..it is it is it is of course it is and how could it not be compared to knowing the “bad” news? Your Mother is dead and you see her dead body and it hurts and and you struggle and hurt and wonder why and what does it mean and it hurts hurts hurts and your not happy OR Your Mother is dead and you don’t know it! That’s Bliss compared to when you find out. It’s a relative thing. ..not a question of deciding “hmmm, should I be ignorant and happy or informed and feel the consequences of what I know?” It’s just an observation of the fact that not knowing or needing to think and worry and accept and be responsible for etc etc …like a young child in it’s mothers arms…is blissful.
