“Knowledge is Power” implies that “lack of knowledge” (or reliance on misinformation) is crippling, misleading and harmful.
Yet our country seems to be thumbing it’s nose at ‘factual knowledge’. I’m starting to wonder if having strongly held ‘beliefs’ (i.e., religion, politics, prejudices, etc.) are really the only problems we face. We create our own experiences, everyday, by the choices we make. Seems to me there are a lot of bad decisions being made by good people. Lemmings over a cliff anybody???
