Ignorance is Bliss?

Being ignorant of these realities is better than knowing them. -- Sadad al-Husseini
Do you agree?

Here is a seven minute clip from the Association for the Study of Peak Oil (ASPO) about Peak Oil
regarding the importance of acknowledging the reality that will change your life more than any other.

One of the speakers, Sadad Al-Husseini, suggests that the reason governments (READ OBAMA) are not telling us the truth is because they don't think we can handle the truth. We are just too fragile and too precious and too freaking thick-headed. It is better for the masses to remain ignorant.

Al-Husseini doesn't believe this of course. He is offering his take on the baffling situation of the world's ignorance of the most significant event on Earth.

Despite our leaders, people are waking up. We must.

That is why I am annoying the crap out of you by posting on Peak Oil every day.
