There are guys a lot smarter than me stumped by that question. The pursuit of knowledge is a good thing, but I'll leave that particular knowledge to people who've chose to actually devote themselves to it. My two cents isn't going to make much of a difference and it's certainly not going to enlighten anyone, at least not any more than someone who actually has an idea of what they're talking about. Ask me when you have computer issues or some sort of ethical problem.
Doctors Without Borders: one of the few charity groups you can rely on to actually do real good in the world.

"The trouble with fighting for human freedom is that one spends most of one's time defending scoundrels. For it is against scoundrels that oppressive laws are first aimed, and oppression must be stopped at the beginning if it is to be stopped at all." - H. L. Mencken, unsourced

"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.'"- Isaac Asimov, Column in Newsweek (21 January 1980) [source]
