TOK Presentation Help

    • Thread Starter

    Hey guys, I recently did my TOK presentation and I didn't get a good grade on it hence I would be re-doing it. I've decided to do my TOK presentation about whitewashing/authorities using their power to manipulate knowledge. There are many instances of this which I've learnt in history (eg: Sharpeville Massacre, Amritsar Massacre, manipulation of information in USSR). It made me question if the knowledge gotten from history can be deemed valid/true. Some questions I've come up with include:

    1. How much evidence is needed to validate knowledge gained from history?
    2. Under what circumstance is the manipulation of shared knowledge by authorities justified?
    3. How can the manipulation of shared knowledge by authorities be justified?

    4. How much evidence is needed before personal knowledge becomes shared knowledge? (This doesn't really relate to the RLS but is another question I came up with).

    Thank you so much!
