and see how far the rabbit hole goes...
A clique saying, I bet I and a few people have made threads about it, but it is easy to understand for most people.
Crazy thoughts, but, we often think of unaware or willfully ignorant people as living more "peacefully" than the overly aware folks (ignoring the people that just don't care about the pills.) At least, it would seem like the case.
Some things are better not known? Do you agree?
How about kids? Does one cherish them for their naivety?
In Plato Republic, there was a discussion that when kids are taught, one should not teach them everything that is wrong with the world while they are growing up, but only when they are themselves ready for learning these things because it infects their mind and the quality of life of the society if we teach them these things too early. (Somewhere along the lines.)
Some scholars even believe that one should use some manipulation and mind training towards society as it is something necessary for society, even if there would be people who would want to disagree with such decision.
Some dark stuff to think about.
For instance, is it better for children to learn the pledge of allegiance to have nationalism towards their country, or does one simply not force a child to know about the pledge because it is a "blue pill?" What if it makes people in society better in that the society learns to work with one another? Is that a reason for making people swallow the blue pill instead of the red pill? Is it really as bad as this video presents it? (Jokes aside, I agree with the message.)
EDIT: LOL I wanted this topic to be in the mature section because I wanted it to be a serious/deeper discussion, but ehh.
