I got this question from this site; I may be using it as blog fodder for a while because some of the questions are really good.
- Would you rather be a worried genius or a joyful simpleton?
Well, I think we all know that I AM a worried genius (well, I wouldn’t call myself a genius, but I am not prone to false modesty; I am smart). Every once in a while, I wonder whether it’s worth it to know about all of the stupid and hateful and vile in the world when there are only so many things I can actually DO about them, but I decided a long time ago that knowing – even at the cost of great pain – is always better than not knowing. My answer is that I would rather be the worried genius; joyful simpletons don’t make the world a better place for anyone.
Happy Monday, Everyone!
