    Why should we use passive voice?
    Is it important in some aspects?

    In several places in the Similar Threads there are explanations. (I know they don't look, on the face of it, very similar to your question, but that's where the answers are.)

    Re: passive voice

    Yes, it is important- it allows us to change the focus onto what would be the object of an active sentence, or conceal the identity, or express something when we don't know the subject, etc.
