The topic : Knowledge is about discovering how much ignorant we are.
The characters used in the evidence are fictional and they don't exist in the real world.

Knowledge isn't an innate faculty in people's minds. The society as a one unit has been debased by the fallacies of the term knowledge. Most people think that they know everything. Mere readers read for the pleasure of adding another book to their reading lists in order to brag about them. Only pragmatic knowledge seekers become more humble whenever they knew something new. They don't have predilection for any field of knowledge. But is it necessary to have formal settings to get knowledge?  The answer is definitely no. It's gratuitous. Universities and schools aren't regarded as a main source of knowledge. There is a myriad of ways to gain it far from formal settings. Dania Husam, a lecturer at Al Zaytouna University, Tunisia , asserts that : "the problem with educated people is that they lack respect towards the outcome of their knowledge. They think that knowledge is an innate faculty.". Confucius has a famous maxim: "Real knowledge is to know the extent of one's ignorance.". People have to appease with the fact that what they know is just a drop in the bucket. Even people who lived for a hundred years couldn't achieve a huge amount of knowledge. Seldom have people applied what they know. And that's another issue concerning knowledge. Someone can read a dozen of manuals about how to drive a car,  but still can't drive a real vehicle. Applying what you know will engender a better quality of life. Sameh Sadeq, a 70 year old writer says : "I've read a hundred books during my life. And I still tremble whenever I open a new one. Only then have I known that I need to be immortal to get the entire fields of knowledge.". Since knowledge teaches us how to be humble, it's not surprisingly shocking to see people with high degrees who react in an erroneous way towards someone who corrected their mistakes. And this indicates that it's plausible and rare to see humble knowledgeable people. That's why highly educated people should galvanize others to stay humble on their way to gain knowledge. Only such people craft communities advantageously .

Well said. --- And might I add that stupid people didn't invent weapons but tend to use them in social settings more than the educated do; war being the exception.
