First: Welcome aboard!
Second: I agree with you. No one wants to question anything, these days.
I've learned the hard way to question everything, pretty much. Things are seldom as they seem, and most people are apt to simply swallow whatever
explanation they are given first. This applies to a lot of things in life, I'm discovering. When something doesn't sit right with you; question
it. Ignorance may be bliss, but it's still ignorance.
As far as being an intellectual person; if society says being intelligent is bad...then to hell with society. If that's where we're headed, I'll
want no part of it. The few of us with the capacity to love and learn can stick together while the rest of the planet goes to poo-poo.
And these days...I don't want any part of the majority of society. It's sad, but I do agree with you.
Keep searching for answers, my friend. If you dig deep enough, you may yet find what you're looking for.
