So-called Knowledge based society

I am observing a catalytic change in people around me these days. As they are becoming more knowledge savvy, they have started to debate just over anything. And most of the time, people do not have a concrete argument to make but since, the topic is close to their heart, they argue it out. I conclude two things out of this. Firstly, most of them lack objectivity. This means that a point that can be explicated in two sentences takes ten and still, the point remains unclear. Secondly, people are becoming more conscious of the fact that knowledge is very important (read:essential) for survival in this so-called knowledge society.

I just read a news article on and it talked about the e-diary of a Delhi girl and her experiences of an adventerous trip to Goa last fortnight. I was unable to comprehend of why the article was there in the first place and even wrote the following to the Editor, Times of India:

The Editor,
Times of India,

Respected Sir,

I am very disappointed to see that the contemporary journalists these days
have a freewill offering and are publishing things like a Delhi Girl's
Diary. This gives an impression that the journalists do not have anything
concrete to post on the newspaper and that, they lack objectivity.

Warm Regards,
Anant Arora

The question one should have at the back of their mind while deliberating upon an issue is: Is there a reasoning behind your argument or an argument behind your reasoning?
