On science and technology...............
“We’ve arranged a society based on science and technology, in which nobody understands anything about science and technology. And this combustible mixture of ignorance and power, sooner or later, is going to blow up in our faces. Who is running the science and technology in a democracy if the people don’t know anything about it?”
-Carl Sagan, as culled from here
Just as a follow-up to his question: and why does it feel like they have politicized it?
