Today's WORD on Journalism
‘Ignorance Is Power’
“[A]gnosis, [from] the neoclassical Greek word for ignorance or ‘not knowing,’ and ontology, the branch of metaphysics which deals with the nature of being. Agnotology is the study of willful acts to spread confusion and deceit, usually to sell a product or win favour.
“I was exploring how powerful industries could promote ignorance to sell their wares. Ignorance is power . . . and agnotology is about the deliberate creation of ignorance.”
