I do not see knowledge (as an accumulation of facts) in a positive sense. I think understanding, even wisdom, can survive without such knowledge.

But I do see knowledge as a safeguard and barrier against those who would seek to manipulate me, against all forms of propaganda, brainwashing, doctrinaire evangelists and so on.

(Obviously "knowledge" can be part of the scientific process but I am on a different tack)

Not asking a question, this can safely be ignored. But sometimes interesting threads come about in a random sort of way.

Any comments welcome.
