Once upon a time "Knowledge is power" was true, but it's not anymore.
The world we live in is run and designed by morons. Idiots that had enough money and influence to hop in the pilot seat before they had even flown with an instructor.
These data breaches where millions of accounts are 'hacked' aren't some result of super sleuths and cyber criminals breaking down fortresses. More often than not, it's just some idotic person peeling back the wallpaper that wasn't put up correctly in the first place; they just found a corner that was starting to peel up. If people knew how broken this world really is, they would rise up as an angry mob, drag their idiot taskmasters into the streets, and put them out of their misery for the good of themselves and their children.
But no. The machine keeps on moving. Destroying lives, grinding up the people it rolls over. Just keep consuming and reproducing. More bodies for the fire. The complacency of people makes me sick.
