How hard can it be to buy a plane in the internet age? Everyone now has access to information at their finger tips. Perhaps this excerpt from T.S. Eliot’s essay “The Perfect Critic” for the literary journal Athenaeum in 1920 will shed some light on the subject.
The vast accumulations of knowledge—or at least of information—deposited by the nineteenth century have been responsible for an equally vast ignorance. When there is so much to be known, when there are so many fields of knowledge in which the same words are used with different meanings, when every one knows a little about a great many things, it becomes increasingly difficult for anyone to know whether he knows what he is talking about or not. And when we do not know, or when we do not know enough, we tend always to substitute emotions for thoughts.
Mr. Eliot would be amazed at the information overload of our times!
