I loathe willful ignorance, particularly when it’s propped up as being somehow preferable to the alternative. Ignorance — moreso even than the exploitative use of power by those who amass it — is the single greatest obstacle to having a world worth living in.

I’ve acknowledged that the love of simplicity and the aversion to big, difficult things is sufficiently great a part of human nature that we’re never going to make it past that obstacle. That we, collectively, will fuck ourselves until the very end of our existence. And I’ve accepted that as best as I can.

But it isn’t so unavoidable for us as /individuals/. And so, where the deliberate avoidance of comprehension we collectively display depresses the fuck out of me, when I see it happen individually, with people I care about, it makes me feel angry and desperately helpless.
