Maybe it's an audience assessment thing:

People live in a world of ignorance because their hand-held device is connected right to google. The "need to know" doesn't seem to be an interest, let a lone an imperative.

By this, I mean, they don't need to know anything since they can ask someone (something) to look it up for them. They take what they get - without question. That's the beauty of the system, a "closure" if you wish: the less you know the more you need them and the less capable you are to realize they're Elephant | [mastadon] ing with you.
