"I came to realize that there was no such thing as a monolithic government always striving to do the right thing, even if it did sometimes make mistakes. I understood all too well that a government was made up of many people with different, and sometimes venal, agendas. And sometimes those kinds of people hold high office and wield enormous power, simply to further their own ends. Many times in the years to come, I would wish for the earlier, simpler days of my blissful ignorance."The above quote got me to thinking about the good old days, when I was totally ignorant about politics and the inner workings of government, and how wonderful it was to be that way. Ignorance was indeed bliss. Anybody else feel the same when they got through reading the quote?
