On Apathy And Ignorance…

Hello loyal fans. Apathy. That is the subject. Can one write about apathy, I wonder? Is that the opposite of apathetic?

Why is there so much apathy? Why do people simply just not care? What has our society become? The “I don’t care” attitude is everywhere. It is everything. We indulge ignorance. We accept obliviousness. Apathy and ignorance walk hand in hand. Ignorance is a product of apathy, and apathy a product of ignorance.

The inquisitiveness of our society seems dead. Where is the thirst for knowledge? People choose actively to live uninformed lives. I suppose that means they are not apathetic after all. But, is choosing to not do/care/learn anything truly not apathy? If nothing, it is certainly active ignorance. We must remove the support system. As we accommodate apathy and ignorance we destroy our society. People have no ethos, only ego, an ego based in ignorance.

Quote of the Day:

“I mean, say what you will about the tenants of National Socialism, Dude – at least it’s an ethos.”

– Walter Shobchak, The Big Lebowski
