Wilful Ignorance

There can be no excuse these days for not finding out answers to some difficult questions. I have little patience recently for people who are finding themselves living in a whirlpool of rapidly changing and deteriorating circumstances if they didn't at least take the time to try to understand the world in which they live and how it works. If we had all done that a few decades ago, we wouldn't be in this mess - so whose fault is it??

Rant Off.

Correction: this message does NOT apply to people who live in the developing world who are working 12 hours a day just to make ends meet, nor to people who don't have electricity or running water. It applies to people in the West who have squandered their free time, their intellect and their money on mere distractions, and continue to do so. It will be difficult to have a lot of sympathy, when their own world starts to shake and crumble, as it has done for so many others around the globe already.
