Ignorance is bliss.
We don't want to know about this kind of thing, don't want to believe it when it's shoved in our faces, and have so much invested in our support of God, King, and Country that to admit their faults is to admit our own. The battle lines have been drawn so clearly in the past decade, we've come to identify ourselves by our political identification, it becomes who we are. "Who am I? I am a [insert political party here]." And we
can't be wrong, not when we believe so fervently in our convictions... therefore, whatever our Country does is right, no matter how vile or reprehensible it is.
