Why is knowledge power?


Knowledge is power, I hear this quoted often but would like a broader answer than just my own, please share your thoughts on this.

    Ha, ha, Mr. Happy, I might have known you would have something to say, for your information that painting is not a drawing, just joking around no offence intended, nice to know your about, I like the patterns of being, that's a good way to put it.

    Empathy is a knowledge of self and others I never thought of it as knowledge before and people who cheat often have great empathy of others which is also something I have only recently learned. Interesting new stuff for me thanks.

    Yes, simple to the point and a bit like my own take on it, that's why I asked the question because no offence intended but I wanted a bigger grasp of it. Simple is most often best because any fool can complicate things as somebody once said. Thanks

    Hi, unfortunately not a good position to be in but you do have a positive take on it, today's worries will not change tomorrows problems but they will affect tomorrows happiness if left unattended, a piece of reality from a real situation, thanks.

    In your context the idea that knowledge is only power if you use it is a nonsense really then because you have to use your knowledge to even have a life, otherwise you would be dependent on someone or something else to make decisions for you. Thanks.

    The bit about the upper hand by using the knowledge fits with something I came across. it said "knowledge is only powerful if you use it" otherwise it's just knowledge, for me that puts a different slant on it, Knowledge isn't power it can be, thanks

    Thanks, I agree with your points and also know that we all learn stuff all the time even without even trying. Just living our lives we learn stuff but it is also very useful to go to college if you can to get some direction and structure.
