    Ignorance is a thing that is taught. People are taught to embrace ignorance. It is embraced when people are encouraged to give equal weight to fact and opinion.

What you're describing is anti-intellectualism. Which is related, but distinct from ignorance itself.

The influence I described is Anti-intellectualism, sure. The result of which is ignorance itself.

You say that ignorance is as simply as lack of knowledge, then?

More like false knowledge.

That definition does feature "lack of <..> learning", which might be the same as saying "living in a bubble". Do you agree with that?
