Same thing any time I watch or read news, I'm not sure what the information is good for besides context for understanding things. Very little of it changes my actions. I still believe that being well informed is a good thing yet it's hard to articulate why. The reasons are obvious for people who have power and influence, but less so for those who don't. I think trying to understand the world is fun for its own sake, but it doesn't necessarily lead to power. Sometimes it even seems like the ignorant tend to have all the power while the knowledgeable waffle about in obscurity or extreme specialization.
