Howdy, fellow IB kids I'm really struggling to find a RLS for my TOK presentation. I had to come up with a knowledge question really suddenly and it is "To what extent does one have the responsibility to share (substantial) personal knowledge?" My main idea for the RLS is to find a case where authorities, scientist have kept a secret from the public that could potentially be really important. Right now my only RLS idea is from the show "The 100" where they are all up on a space ship or something and an engineer finds out that the oxygen will soon run out. When he tells the president, he doesn't allow him to share the discovery to others and kills him to make sure of it. My teacher said that this will probably work, but a REAL RLS would be much better. So if you have any ideas of incidences kind of similar to that I would be REALLY GRATEFUL!
This is my first post on this website - I've been relying on your answers for surviving through the year, so maybe if I scream into the yawning you'll answer me back. I've been looking at creating a KQ off of a RLS, and though this is a practice presentation for my TOK course, I was really curious to how a knowledge question could be formed off of this very specific situation. The article link is here: https://www.usnews.com/news/politics/articles/2017-07-24/black-women-picking-up-firearms-for-self-defense It plays a lot into gun control, racism, etc, so I think in the right hands this would be a really interesting topic (this is just my practice, so it's up there if one of you want to check it out). How would you guys formulate a KQ to this? I've got a couple like 'to what extent can the right to protect the self triumph the safety of a general population?', or 'what role does morals play in making exceptions to disadvantaged groups of society to ensure their wellbeing?', but none of them really apply, and to be honest, they make assumptions that aren't what I want to go off of.
