Epistemological efforts throughout history have all concluded that knowledge is essential to the progression of societal ethics, but in today's world there seems to be no knowledge that is sacred.  There is, rather, a disconcerting declination in common knowledge, and the freedoms we have are threatened by this factor, as one must know what freedom is in order to have it. The distractions this world has manifested in recent years have given rise to the slow extinction of rational thought. People no longer need to think or learn when a devise can simply answer any questions posed. Knowledge holds no relevance anymore, thus its importance to the future is sacrificed, along with this current generation.
