    Anyone worth his salt will take it with a pinch of salt with what he hears.

    how true the statement, and how much trouble has gotton people into when they seek to pursue the truth and what they believe in.

    look at what the world is happening around us, and sometimes even if you know the truth, what can you do to change it?

    in this case, being ignorant and indifferent allows you to appreciate the immediate things infront of you.
    ignorance is not always bliss. for example, ignorance of the law is no excuse.
    in this case and in my view, being ignorance is not bliss. be in the know and consciously chose to ignore it, is better.

    Good example would be history books, who really saw the merlion and why did it disappear when Sir Raffles saw it? Who can prove it exists? Myths & legends?? I think these history books were created to give us more homework, so should we believe everything we see/hear?

    Ignorance is indeed bliss for some.

    Look at the villagers in Nepal, the people in Pakistan, and you understand why they are so happy despite many troubles around them.

    We are a nation and a society shaped by the media and all the tonnes of stuff that we read. Of course its depressing, with world coming to an end wth China's rising pollutions, oil prices increasing, Middle east coming to a tense stand still, America in chaos, Africa still okay lah, Kilimanjaro's ice caps melting within the next 30 years.

    If you are an Indian farmer waiting for the next rain to come so your crops can grow, isn't that just one worry on your mind?

    hmmm... i do agree with you to some extent, but I also feel thats imposing your standards on others, which i am also guilty of.

    I am only airing my viewpoint. How can it be read as 'imposing .... on others' ?
