Knowledge Vs. Wisdom

This is a provocative speech given by Google with their guest Ralph Nader.

There is a question he is asking these people, whom are the amongst the best and brightest in the world.

With Google, you have at your fingertips more knowledge than you could fit in the Library of Congress. Yet, here we are, in a campaign season, and this country is facing some serious problems. With all of this information available, why are we not able to fix the problems we have in this country, alone? Why is it, in schools we teach students to learn facts, but what are they doing with those facts?

This is why we have this disconnect between knowledge vs. wisdom.

What can be done to help resolve this problem, not only in our schools, but in our homes?

Your thoughts?
