TruTV has launched an incredible new show: “Adam Ruins Everything.” This is turning out to be a hilarious new series that’s educational and excessively fun. Not everyone will enjoy Adam Conover’s form of humor, although the format of the show is incredibly well done. Even during the first two episodes, the show already set the stage, demonstrating that it will dispel myths and provide education on the very serious and very real problems with our world. No one is exempt: companies, individuals, government, and others. And, while I highly recommend that each and every individual in the U.S. takes the time to actually watch the show (in order to help elevate the sheep to a higher level of existence), the title does present a quandary: Just how does knowledge ruin everything?
In a single word, that’s the answer. People like to live in ignorance. Why? Because the truth makes you accountable. It’s actually a very sad state of affairs to live in a world that actually accepts the apocalypse as an eventual fact. One might think that the concern of a world-wide disaster would motivate people to action – but it’s just the opposite. Reality isn’t easy – and that’s all there is to it. Politics and the media spend billions telling us how much we should be caring about the planet, but if you were to find out why the planet is in a state of despair – you would have to accept that it’s the fault of people. Our constantly allowing waste, abuse, and other horrors, has lead to the point that the state of the planet Earth is truly sad.
Overcoming these issues would take time, sacrifice, and work. People don’t want that. People don’t want to see the truth of their own world and accept that they’ve been responsible for all of the ongoing problems. But – it’s okay.
People can change.
Accepting the truth is always the first step to recovery. So – watch the show – see what’s really going on around you – and start to make a change.
Or … don’t. It’s said that “ignorance is bliss.” But, the one question you might want to at least ask yourself is: who said it? If it’s the people who benefit from your ignorance … then perhaps … it’s not so blissful after all.
