    ignorance can also be seen as a mental shield from the truth

    We are talking about the Trojan horse, that the Greeks used to invade the city of Troy. Your post was an obvious example of attempting to troll, and was also irrelevant.

    I don't think that people are too ignorant about things that concern their safety. I think the problem is that alot of people believe everything they read that is mainstream then ignore conspiracy theorists etc when quite a few could actually be right. And even if we do know the truth there is not alot we can do about it! Oil america etc etc invasions 9/11 holocaust etc etc false information is everywhere the ability to think on your feet is where it is at.
    And still, no one has satisfactorily proven, that it isn't opposite day.

    I think possibly whaling is one of the best examples of people not being ignorant but not doing anything to help (except some awesome hardcore guys).

    perhaps they are being ignorant towards people that want to stop them and they know the consequences of over-killing the whales

    That is probabley true but I think there should be a reaction without knowing what would happen if all the whales were to die. People should simply react to the fact that whales are being killed in a cruel way, needlessly aswell.

    the people doing it don't see the killing of whales as needless but everybody else does

    If anybody watches the Gruen transfer you would have noticed that one of the ads that were supposed to be pitched wasn't? Well I took a look at the site and there was quite an interresting discussion about it. Point of view from anyone?

    http://www.antiprejudicead.net/ ok the ad will offend some viewers but the site has heaps of warnings about this.

    I like the Gruen Transfer... I can easily see how this would've offended many people. It makes a good point, but... hm. It's a tough call.

    Yeah I thought it should have been shown because people can appreciate even what he was attempting to do, however I believe the way he did it was wrong.

    Yes.. I think that telling discrimnatory jokes, although it does get the message across, is too confronting for Australian audiences currently.
