Science & Information
Amount of information available grows at an exponential rate, but most of this is highly unstructured, unfalsifiable, unverifiable, fragmented, polarized, plagiarized, and inaccurate. As such, most information is the antithesis of scientific prose.
This is why it is important for society to promote science and teach its citizens to think scientifically, such that they can find the diamonds inn the rough. We otherwise risk the full emergence of informational relativism.
