    Maybe this is a chicken and egg thing. Desiring to know, (one must have an open mind) might make men good. Having a closed mind, desiring not to know might make men bad.

    Knowledge can be a very dangerous thing in the minds of bad men.

    And likewise, being satisfied with believing is natural to lazy and dull people...

    Good men want to know; crooked lefty wants to believe Fake News and ridicule knowledgeable dirt diggers as conspiracy nuts.

    Also, although good men want to know, I have met a considerable ratio of those who are AFRAID of too much information; a hobbled mind is the bane of enlightened mankind (although religion and political profiteers love small minds and hobbles).

    THROUGH DESIRE, a man having separated himself, seeketh and intermeddleth with all wisdom. A fool hath no delight in understanding, but that his heart may discover itself. Proverbs 18
