Ignorance is not bliss,
Ignorance is ignorance. Being unaware
of what's going on around you
is a good way to get 'run over' in
life due to lack of awareness or of
what is going on at the time.
History is filled with whole societies
going extinct due to the fact that they
lacked information about what was going
on at the time.
The Mayans, the Indus, the Anasazi,
Easter Island, most of the Native American
Tribes of North and Central America,
who failed to understand the size, scope,
and nature of the threat that white man
meant to their civilizations.
Wait around long enough, and history has a
nasty habit of repeating itself...
