Ignorance is not bliss, it is a void of thought and reason. Ignorance leaves room for dogmatism and misguidance. Baring the burden of intelligence is not a burden at all. Information is what allows us to come to a decisive and informative decision. Instead of wishing we never were, we should learn about the issues that haunt our existence. We as a society need to come to a realization of what the problem is, and address that issue accordingly.
