Đề IELTS Cambridge 12 - Test 5
Some people believe that it is good to share as much information as possible in scientific research, business and the academic world. Others believe that some information is too important or too valuable to be shared freely.

Opinions differ on whether it is beneficial to make scientific, economic and academic information public, or it is too risky to allow free access to those kinds of knowledge. Personally, it seems to me that the less illiterate people are, the more peaceful and secured this world becomes.
On the one hand, when it comes to publicising information in scientific, business and academic spheres, there are always concerns about the fact that dishonest and illegal behaviours can become more dangerous with the help of higher education. This is understandable because to control the purpose for which the advanced knowledge will serve is nearly impossible in reality. For example, an academic course about fire science will benefit not only prospective arson investigators but also potential arsonists. Indeed, the negative scenarios are always the most concerning ones, thereby making people think it is better to limit the access to important and valuable information.
On the other hand, limitation to specialised information will have negative impacts on the world’s development and security. Scientific and academic researches rely heavily on available data and previous findings. If such information is not shared openly to academicians and researchers, the continuous progress of science and other academic fields will come to a standstill. Furthermore, stupidity will definitely make people easier to be lured into harmful, aggressive and violent activities which later may drive the societies to the verge of insecurity. The best mediation for this dilemma is to keep sharing specialised information to members of the public together with active law enforcement to maintain social security.
In conclusion, despite the fact that important knowledge related to science, business and academic worlds can be used to serve harmful and illegal activities, I think that it would be better to publicise the information in order to reduce negative outcomes that may arise due to a state of being uninformed.
