“I see ‘Knowledge & Truth’ exemplified in WICKED during the Wizard’s Chamber scene where Elphaba discovers that the Wizard has no real powers. Her previous ‘Knowledge’ that the Wizard is powerful and wonderful dissolves away, and she is left with the ‘Truth’ that he has simply manipulated the masses into believing in his propaganda.”
