  •  I read Carl Sagan's Demon Haunted World... (0+ / 0-)

    when it was first published decades ago. In it he railed against the superstition and ignorance even then taking over American public discourse. He noted with alarm that more Americans believed in UFO's than in the reality that men had landed on the moon. Sagan made a number of proposals to get us back on the rails and moving toward logic and reason again as a society.

    Since that time, we as a nation have been racing in the precise opposite direction. It's apparent to me that the primary reason is the despicable opportunism and cynicism of a Republican party and a corporatocracy that finds a profoundly ignorant populace easier to manipulate. And a Democratic party that refuses to fight against ignorance by calling out lies every time.
