Could it not be the case that knowledge nowadays lost its value because of an ideology that puts feelings much higher inside of the hierarchy of values than knowledge? Sure, better apply it when you own it [knowlegde], but if that doesn’t have any effect you’ll be stuck with the same bookshelf that doesn’t have any purpose other than being yours. Knowledge should surpass a process of critical thinking before becoming real (truthfull) knowledge. This stage of critical thinking has been swept away by the stage of biased evaluation.
