Cognitive Dissonance

Cognitive Dissonance "protects" us from learning more, especially things that could change your life dramatically. But why?

We are all driven a lot by fear and it is this fear that stops us from undergoing change and without change, well, nothing changes. It is this kind of thinking that stops us from reforming modern society more effectively and quicker. Today we still live in a world that thinks chemo therapy is an effective answer for cancer and that money makes you happy. Neither really being the answer.

Cognitive Dissonance prevents scientists from seeing the importance of spirituality and it prevents religious people from asking the important questions.

Why is it like that? Is the world supposed to be divided or can a world without division where everybody agrees exist? That sounds almost impossible so maybe we are supposed to to kick against living in a perfect society.
