Informed Ignorance

What is Informed Ignorance?


The seemingly oxymoronic state one holds after being briefed on an important issue that they themselves recognize as deserving of further investigation, and then having made the conscious decision not to learn anything more about it.

Example 1.

Dude A: Hey dude, wanna go to that lecture on the ongoing genocide in Darfur?

Dude B: Nah, no thanks dude. I'm happy with my informed ignorance.

Example 2.

Hippies often try to make you feel guilty about your own informed ignorance.
