A sobering quote from Carl Sagan

+Dewayne Hendricks runs a very interesting mailing list that includes emails forwarded from various interesting people. The other day, he forwarded a piece from one of his readers, Steve Crandall. Crandall wrote:

"In searching for some kit for the storm yesterday in the basement I came across Sagan's The Demon-Haunted World from 1987.  I never got around to reading it, so I just started it this morning to see if it works 25 years later."

An interesting, but very dystopic, paragraph:

"I have a foreboding of an America in my children's or grandchildren's time--when the Unites States is a service and information economy; when nearly all the key manufacturing industries have slipped away to other countries; when awesome technological powers are in the hands of a very few, and no one representing the public interest can even grasp the issues; when the people have lost the ability to set their own agendas or knowledgeably question those in authority; when, clutching our crystals and nervously consulting our horoscopes, our critical faculties in decline, unable to distinguish between what feels good and what's true, we slide, almost without noticing, back into superstition and darkness."

(p.25)

Dear Supporter,. In just a few days, Californians will decide whether to vote yes or no on Proposition 30. A no vote means a shortened school year, laid-off teachers, crowded classrooms, and higher tu...
