I think I am getting tired of people's ignorance. I can understand not knowing things, but not _wanting_ to know? I've seen a post in my other blog by someone reading about Chinese 'cultural revolution' and its horrors... and a commenter in that post saying that she finds all this hard to believe. I'd tell her to go and google it up, but I don't particularly want to talk to her.

This is a complicated issue for me - a bookish child and a google-happy Internet user, I was always well-informed in peculiar areas of general knowledge and also picked up a lot of stuff as general knowledge, without studying it specifically, merely because I find it easy to pick up knowledge. And I always felt apologetic when someone I talked to did not know what I was talking about... and I also felt kinda guilty and rushed to google stuff when _I_ did not know what people were talking about. Maybe I should stop feeling guilty both ways, especially in case of Internet communications - Google is but a click away; I may know more about a thing, but if you have _no foggiest idea_ what I talk about, then you don't want to know.
