Let's educate ourselves.

Carl Sagan [ˈseɪ.ɡən] 1934-1996 Professor at Cornell University "We live in an age of science and technology with formidable powers. If we, the general public don't understand it, then who is making all the decisions about science and technology?" He also quotes Thomas Jefferson, the US Prez at the beginning of the 19th century who laid stress on the fact that it was not enough to enshrine some rights in the constitution and the bill of rights. People have to be educated and they have to practise their skepticism and their education. Otherwise, we don't run the government, the government runs us.
