A WORD OF WARNING

Nothing destroys a nation as effectively as the ignorance, apathy, and complacency of its citizens.

    ignorance comes in two forms . . .

    self-generated – when folk are too lazy/apathetic to take the trouble to learn what is happening in the world and what their government is doing in their name and . . .

    government sponsored – when governments deliberately seek to keep their citizens in the dark about what they are getting up to

    both are equally bad !

      I agree wholeheartedly.

      The first form is especially practiced in countries like the United States.

      The second form is especially practiced in countries like North Korea.

      Yet self-generated ignorance inevitably leads to government sponsored ignorance.

      In other words, ignorance, apathy, and complacency inevitably lead to totalitarianism–or total anarchy.
