Is there anything more important for humanity, and its long term survival, than knowing the "truth"?
I think the question is clear enough, although general. Sometimes we take for granted why we always want to know the truth, and my answer is because it helps us survive better, at least in the long term. Even gossiping and curiosity about other people's lives I believe come from that fact, that knowing the truth, and less secrets helps us survive better, more often than not. But this instinctive truth search sense we have developed in old and different times, to me seems as needed as ever today. I wonder what other people think, how many of us have thought of this, and the media, or the paparazzi, etc. in that way, and is there anything more essential for humanity's long term survival, in terms of values than knowing/seeking greater truths?
