I've been quiet lately. I feel like I'm in a trance some days, watching the world spin but not really comprehending how or why things are evolving as they are, seemingly oblivious to facts and reality. On occasion, it has struck me that willful ignorance within the world's population, somewhat akin to the lemming paradigm may have something to do with it. But then I drift off.
Today I was jarred out of my periodic apathy again by Jim Quinn's fine post entitled "Culture of Ignorance". He has eloquently put down in words what I've often begun to assemble in disjointed thoughts over the last 10 years or so (maybe longer) but never managed to output in a cohesive way. Well sprinkled by quotes from thinkers, I strongly endorse Quinn's "Part 1 - Culture of Ignorance".
