Francois Joliot

Very interesting contribution. The contrast between the fact that we live in a society of information, and still it seems that people act if they are not informed has been explored by Jean-Francois Revel in his masterpiece "La Connaissance Inutile" (1987). Still the conclusion is not that information reduces wisdom and awareness, it is misused information and ideology which does that. And what was true from newspapers in the early 20s (People who criticize contents of blog and websites for their lack of quality or accuracy should have a read of the way the early years of the Soviet Union regime was reported in the leftist press - in the UK or elsewhere) stays true as of today.
