i've known people who simply believe that the world is screwed up, but there is nothing they can do about it, so they choose to not do anything about it.
if all truths are known, would it make the world a better place to live? i can think not.
my reasoning behind this is control.
control is needed, for what if someone were to be able to look up how to create a weapon using the truth available that could hurt a lot of people?
then again, i suppose it is about a level of control.
already, truth is beginning to become very much apart of society, where upon a lot of things are known that some people dislike very much. especially for those that are in power.
those that are in power, wish to keep secrets because not only could it hurt their reputation and has the ability to take away their power, but it also has the ability to cause chaos.
in a world where those who are in power dislike uncontrolled change, truth seems to be the enemy, atleast to an extent. this means that without change, accepting what is universally deemed unacceptable amongst most people, is actually acceptable for those in power because of their fear of change.
considering that with the advent of technology a lot of truth will be known in the coming decades, how much of it should be known, and why?
