I’m afraid it’s ever the case that people see what pleases them to see and avert their eyes from what does not please them. To put it another way, they live in a state of denial about things they don’t want to face or think about.

But even so, it seems to me that more and more people are coming out of this state of denial every day, which is a source of hope for the future.
