The Ignorance Bubble
Date – July 17, 2012
Lately, I’ve noticed a trend. And like every negative trend that I can’t help but notice, it involves my generation…
When it comes to a debate or argument, I’m open to the fact that I may be wrong. I truly am. Don’t get me confused with the kind of person who would try anything even if there’s an obvious abundance of evidence to support why I shouldn’t even be debating the topic at all. For instance, I’m not gonna try coke or narcotics if some drug dealer stresses his case to me. Don’t be silly.
To get straight to the point. I have two scenarios involving two people who are afraid to see the truth because they’re young and they know that simply observing the truth would be the downfall of their ignorance bubble?
“Yes, Ignorance bubble.”
I’m sure psychologist and philosophers world wide already have a more concrete and orthodoxed term or phrase for it. And when I find out, I’ll think about putting it in.
But we’ve all been there. In that ignorance bubble. Let’s get real. Have any of us really suspected that Santa Claus’ existed and put presents under the Christmas tree on Christmas Eve. Did anyone really believe that a fairy walked into our rooms at night and replaced our idle teeth with petty change? Sure you may have acted or pretended to believe in such tales, but the realistic logic was always instilled in us. I think…It must be that or I may have been the most miserable child on earth.
