  • T full quote shows the meaning in a different light: it reads "Where ignorance is bliss , it's a folly to be wise".
    The phrase, from Ode on a Distant Prospect of Eton College by Thomas Gray, is possibly one of the most misconstrued phrases in English literature.

    “If ignorance is bliss, there should be more happy people.” was Huxley's comment on its abuse.

  • No not really. Being ignorant just means you get it worse later, rather than facing the hard truths today. Or your just unaware of your exploitation, or how bad your environment really is.

  • Nope. If everyone stayed ignorant, slavery would still be in effect. Not to mention the holocaust.

  • I do think ignorance is bliss but you shouldn't always keep it that way. It depends on the situation.
