    Default Just some food for thought

    "I have a foreboding of an America in my children’s or grandchildren’s time — when the United 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 whats true, we slide, almost without noticing, back into superstition and darkness.”

    Carl Sagan, 1995

    I remember being told all through school we were going to be the "thinkers" of the world and everyone else would be the ones doing the "dirty" work. It always sounded pretty elitist to me and I never understood how we expected to keep the doers from becoming the thinkers once they had all the technology...
