25 "Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?
28 "And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. Matthew 6:25-34
Yes, ignorance is bliss. You think I don't want what you are proposing? You're damn straight I do. I just cannot do it in good conscience, in good faith, or in the spirit of responsibility that has been entrusted to us to maintain. And we have already failed, miserably. To take your route, although desirable, is indeed EPIC FAIL

On the flip side however (becasue we agree that taking a break is a good thing), I don't recomend walking around with blinders on pretending the world is in fine shape. There is things happening in the world that are worth paying attention too, and un fortunately the only outlets we have to find them is the net and the MSM. And when it comes down to ATS is pretty much tops for the alternative stuff.

It's time to wake up. It's time to look around. You had your fun. You had your ignorance and accompanying bliss. We either unite and do something about this cluster of a mess, or one day soon it WILL come crashing down around us. And when it does, at least we in the know will have a vague clue why it did. And some of us will even be prepared for it. I am in the firm belief that the next false flag operation will be so huge they will declare martial law and attempt to take every last weapon there is from the American public. And if it doesn't happen that way, then it will surely happen one at a time.
Good for you to those that can achieve a workable balance and still have fun. I am in envy.
