Ignorance is not bliss

My previous post was about a bunch of really stupid people that signed a petition to institute a taxpayer-funded Nazi police state in the U.S.      
If you missed it, here is the link:    One of the responses I received was “ignorance is bliss”.

The saying, “ignorance is bliss,” is what is known as an idiom. It refers to the refusal to acknowledge the reality of a situation.  Some people prefer to hide in “ignorance” because the truth is too unpleasant or they just don’t want to worry about it.  They prefer someone else take the burden of dealing with whatever the issue is.

The simple truth is, ignorance is NOT bliss; ignorance is ignorance.  Stupidly may be bliss, but certainly not ignorance.  Ignorance is best described by this Robert Browning quote:”Ignorance is not innocence, but sin.”   My favorite however is this anonymous quote:” Never forget public ignorance is the government's best friend."  Ignorance is not necessarily a reflection of lack of intelligence; it is rather a lack of education or incorrect education.

Intelligent adults should know that government handouts are not truly free.  Being adult means that you know that the fictitious “free ride” eventually ends, that the money eventually runs out if half the people take without contributing, that if you do not have a strong military freedom is eventually taken from you and that if you have a press that is aligned with the government, ignorance is the result.
History shows us that the ideology of socialism has torn nations asunder or rendered them defenseless. The alarm bells to warn a free and self-sufficient nation of Americans have long been sounding.  Many have chosen to ignore the reality at hand.

What has kept the American people in the dark of things to come, is lack of knowledge. What is coming quickly is a change that the people, their families, their neighbors, their employers and their clergy are ill-prepared for or they simply choose to ignore.  Those who remain cowered behind “ignorance is bliss” will have a rude awakening.  The thought of the coming hardships, regardless of political differences, that will be imposed on all Americans is deeply distressing.

Millions of Americans cast their vote to receive from the government hand-outs.  What that vote delivers is a temporary micro impact with macro consequences.  Promises for free contraception to life-long welfare to cross-dressing in the workplace distracted voters from the bigger picture.  An already in-play strategy involves, in due course, sacrificing their money, their health, their rights and their freedoms to a force at work beyond their limited view.  They have become willing targets.
Never under estimate the ignorance, and in some cases the stupidity of the American public. 

Dumbed-down by the public education system over the last 40 years, they learned nothing of 20th century Soviet Europe, or of those who would chance 90 miles of shark-infested waters to escape Castro’s Cuban utopia.

Obama never denied that he would bring down capitalism and weaken our military industrial complex.  Those who bothered to read his two books knew he, like his father and grandfather sees America as the last great neocolonialist powers who exploit third world countries through the use of their economic and military force. 

Do Americans care about the corrupt politicians who are bankrupting the country through out-of-control spending without any accountability to voters?  Does it matter that our laws are no longer enforced and our borders are wide open to illegal invasion?  Do we care that our sovereignty is sold to the United Nations, piece by piece, treaty by treaty? Do we care how depraved and immoral our society has become, following the narcissistic Hollywood “role models?”  Does it matter that our families are destroyed by immoral minorities, our faith attacked and religious rites and traditions forbidden by invading intolerant religions who scream discrimination, hate speech, and racism?  Do we care that so many elements of our public and private education have morphed into a Socialist indoctrination machine?

Are the false doctrines of communism and the socialist economy going to prevail because people care more about job security with the state, any job with tenure, insurance, and pension at least until “democracy” is finished with its “useful idiots” who are lulled into a false sense of security?

There is something wrong with our country, a generalized malaise, when no one questions injurious acts and policies committed in its name and is happily self-destructing morally, socially, militarily, and economically.

Can the decay and eventual demise be reversed?  If we can stem the tide of the liberal PC police, restore healthy family values to include a mom and dad, control illegal immigration, stem the tide of victim-hood and entitlement mentality and replace it with a sound work ethic, wrestle education from the clutches of nefarious educators and administrators bent on fundamentally transforming this country in their twisted vision, if we throw out United Nations, the myriad-barbed octopus that strangles the globe with its third world “programs,” and all corrupt politicians in Washington, only then the American faith-based family, “borders, English language, and culture” can be reestablished.
