People want to be told what to do because they are afraid (petrified) of figuring it out for themselves.
The Encyclopaedia Britannica was started in 1770 and is maintained by a staff of more than a hundred full-time editors. Over the last 250 years, it has probably cost more than a hundred million dollars to build and edit. Wikipedia, on the other hand, is many times bigger, far more popular, and significantly more up-to-date, and it was built for almost free.
