Knowledge alone is not power

Knowledge is power.” [“ipsa scientia potestas est” (‘knowledge itself is power‘)]
~ Sir Francis Bacon

Forgive me, Sir, but I disagree. Knowledge in and of itself is a base for power, but it is not itself power. What good does knowledge do if you don’t use it? Don’t act upon it? Don’t let it inform your decisions?

Only when married with action is knowledge true power.
