"Ignorance is bliss." Before the storm of social media and news sites that are looking for as many hits as possible by trumpeting anything and everything grossly spectacular, we simply weren't bombarded 24/7 by so much negative stuff. In a very real sense, what we didn't know didn't hurt us psychologically. Now, if you watch the news 5 hours a day for a week, you're ready for antidepressants.
"The greatest obstacle to discovery is not ignorance -- it is the illusion of knowledge."
--Daniel J Boorstin
