Buying Education; Missing Out On Knowledge (Ignoring The internet As An Important Learning Tool) [Part 2]
The truth is that not many believe that knowledge should be dynamic, some examples are some types of governments we have in the world. For example China and North Korea as communist states limiting the information her citizens should be exposed to, is a typical care study of stopping or trying to influence the dynamism of knowledge.
Of course they have their reasons; the influence of the outside world can create a chaotic situation with the citizens and the state, vendetta from other countries or they're stopping other countries from influencing the politics of their country. While these are totally substantial reasons, it doesn't change the fact that it might change the fact that people should change gradually with the influx of information that's always at their disposal.
Financially, this might not be the case, these Nations are capable of scientifically and technological create compartmentalized information, gadgets, equipments or even enhancements that are necessary for them to grow and develop or even follow the trend of the world.
The truth is, they will constantly observe the change happening around the world and try to mirror it. One thing is, they're financially equipped and not just that. They recognize the importance of being updated, this means that this knowledge allows them to utilize the latest technologies in either learning, mechanization, weaponry and otherwise. Without these knowledges, they'll be backward in so many aspects.
Let us not forget the fact that when humans activate the transactional application to how knowledge can be shared, they become socially superfluous. (Can also have a disadvantageous tint to it) This goes back to show how the internet is instrumental to how knowledge can be created and shared without any form of barrier to the extent or limit to how people can learn.
This is mostly dependent on the process of filtering. This is to show that knowledge is impacting on so many aspects of life. But the most important to me is culturally, socially and majorly FINANCIALLY.
Financially because, because with the right kind of financial power, more knowledge can be acquired. When people have come to learn how to make money, for example, they'll spend the money they have in a bid to even make more money. This is what I call investing instincts, which can be acquired by being financially inclined in the first place.
Furthermore, the economic development and breakthrough that so many states in the world have come to attain has been as a result of following the latest financial trends and developing that which works uniquely for them. For countries who want to spend money alone on political reforms, constitutional reforms or financial endeavors that only brings more wealth or puts more enablement into the hands of a few.
making advancements towards educational reforms to tally with the latest of current knowledge in the world would not really be a priority because this would eventually open the eyes of people to the mayhem, the embezzlement and the constant thieving. Plus, when you take away the access of information from people, you can use things like poverty to actually control them. Poverty can also be a state of ignorance apart from deprivation. It's being in a position where you're unaware.
During the #Endsars Protest in Nigeria, the internet was a useful tool in educating people as to why external bodies cannot interfere in the affairs of a sovereign nation, this same internet would also educate people on the fundamentals of human rights and so many other aspects. Nevertheless, I feel that Nigeria as a nation has not been able to tap into the financial education that the internet has had to offer, this is probably the same with some other African countries.
Crypto is one example. With how poor a lot of people are, they still haven't seen Crypto as a means to change. This is to show how financially inept the situation is. Knowledge on fashion, political systems and all is always translated, but it's always difficult for Financial knowledge to follow with the same velocity, and this is what I'll be discussing in my next post.
