Is Information Power?

by krishnamoorthyb


We have been living in a world where we believe that “Information is Power”. 

Kofi Annan, while addressing the Global Knowledge Conference at Toronto in 1997 said, “Knowledge is power. Information is liberating. Education is the premise of progress, in every society, in every family.”

I would like to live in world where information is NOT power. Information and knowledge should be shared and real power should lie in the use and interpretation of information.
