Ignorance or indifference is bliss. If we access Wikipedia, there will be countless discussions that state how this term is often used by writers and singers as part of their lyrics. Created into poetry and various songs that are now spread in this beautiful world in the form of works of art.
Stepping into conditions when we were still a child, or in other words, was a small person. There are many things that make us want to know everything at that time. Until the problem of the unseen, is it true that there are ghosts, fear of walking at night, and various other things? But the desire to know things does not lead to the existence of adult ignorance and indifference. Where childhood ignorance and indifference is happiness in seeking answers, while ignorance and indifference is the joy of knowing the answers so that you want to create independence for yourself.
The technology that has now made the earth so small, displayed on the screen makes us instantly cross various continents. Even though it's virtual, in reality, some think it's real. Even though some have been edited, some have not.
A variety of information is created, available, and presented with a variety of different art forms. Creating a variety of existing knowledge. But unfortunately, the arguments and knowledge are easily created and available blindly from all the links that exist in the virtual world. Especially when it comes to social media, a place where a thousand links from unknown sites are found.
It is true that ignorance often gives peace and serenity. In today's borderless world, ignorance can be an important asset. At a time when people are competing to show off their establishment, and science is the capital to use the internet which is getting faster and faster, is it true that being ignorant can be a glory?
Even though it is an independent human being who has an elemental value, reason will be created compared to other creatures. And from there the word glory may be realized.
Indeed, Ignorance or indifference to things that are not too important makes our lives far from prejudiced. Because there are humans whose behavior is so eager to know all the events of other people in their lives? Maybe for them with a lot of knowledge it becomes useful for their lives. But when you know, you are even more burdened by that knowledge. And it is a pity that knowledge will know of useless things of existence. Will knowing these things change the situation or vice versa?
The birth of an attitude of being indifferent really needs to be trained. Don't let us become people who don't care about things that are important and at critical times. Because it is not this kind of indifference that must be cultivated in the self but indifference to ignorance that takes precedence. Like the problem of spreading fake news. On the values that are championed, democratic or liberal.
In a world full of imagery and all that media gloss it might be a good place to be indifferent. An example is not caring about the news that the President eats at a street stall, but there are still many poor people who scream out of hunger. However, from a point of view like this one can give birth to an understanding that a perspective is really influenced by the spaces of subjectivity. Abundant with an atmosphere where there is an obligation to be able to hear rather than to speak.
