“The personal attacks,
the threats against principles,
freedoms, and institutions,
and the flagrant disregard for truth and decency,
the reckless provocations,
most often for the pettiest and most personal reasons,
reasons having nothing whatsoever
to do with the fortunes of the people
that we have been elected to serve.
None of these appalling features
of our current politics
should ever be regarded as normal.”

“In science it often happens that scientists say,
‘You know that’s a really good argument; my position is mistaken,’
and then they would actually change their minds
and you never hear that old view from them again.
They really do it.
It doesn’t happen as often as it should,
because scientists are human
and change is sometimes painful.
But it happens every day.
I cannot recall the last time something like that
happened in politics or religion.”

~ Carl Sagan
