How can you or your society decide ethically which knowledge should or should not be pursued?Watch
I really dont understand most people's theories on knowledge, because they seem, well, outdated.
I dont believe there is a limit to what knowledge we should seek, as then there will be no limit also to what we dont know.
TOK is quite simply something that schools and society have with held from young people by censoring thinking from the curriculum. TOK is about asking genuine questions about claims that people make under the guise of it being the truth.
If you and a whole bunch more of the blinkered populace out there had the ability to question maybe we wouldn't have had cigarette companies getting away with murder for so many years, or Presidents and CIA's lying their way into creating global chaos by preying on some constructed notion of moral good.
what issues are there closer to home; do you dare think how you've been fooled all your life?
For your info, I didn't submit this TOK question to the IBCA in the end. I chose to write question 7 instead. Anyways, I end up with 3 bonus points, for which I'm quite happy with... (but that's about the only thing I'm happy with when it comes to my final IB grade, arg... it could have being better if I didn't get all stressed up...) Be strong, rock on you IB ppl, I'm oooout, lateeeerz!
