I am a weird person who loves weird things, and I sure know how to write optimistic descriptions.
…or offensive, but sorry, I can’t help but believe the majority of the population are truly, happily ignorant. With that said I’ve felt this way while thinking about and discussing several subjects and in the cases of discussion it’s usually mutually implied that such people have it better and are to be envied. The subjects that have got me thinking most about this are the drug war and the rise of consumerism (of course my nihilism towards religion counts as well, but there’s no rush to convert people with that). And now I think maybe being content and ignorant is the problem. However, while the more radical-minded would easily agree that blissful ignorance is the problem, the thing is the majority of the blissful ignorant also agree, they just tend to believe they’re the ones in the minority and the others, which would include me, are ignorant of other issues that said “minority” see as their big priorities in life. So everybody’s goal is to get everybody else out of the perceived “happy bubble” to get their ideas out there. Either that, meaning everybody’s unhappy about too widely varying things to make a difference, or the bubble of bliss really is out there. Well now to be consistent with myself I would have to believe that my ideas are more important than others, or at least are important enough to listen to. Well I think they are. If the drug war is just an elaborate joke to spend as much of our money as possible to restrict our own freedom, while simultaneously brainwashing us to think that freedom is dangerous, then people should know and be unhappy about it. If ad agencies and big business really do see us as sheep unable to make our own choices, and regularly herd us with fear, then we should be aware of this. That’s how you change the world I guess.
