Many of Carl Sagan's Best selling books are now out of print, not even on ebook, because too many people prefer to live in darkness and fear than have to take responsibility.

Many of the problems we have in the world now we found the answers to long ago but if we don't keep the information available then we are going to have to work to find those answers again every generation rather than moving on and progressing.

just means we need to build huge walls, if they're big enough to be seen from space it will be safe to assume they are pretty strong and sturdy and will last.

I wanted to post a few of these great Carl Sagan quotes that I love!
found them while browsing my computer for this one that I was thinking of:

"One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.” Carl Sagan: Science as a Candle in the Dark

Of course we know that we never have viewed the earth from space and that picture is an e-painting, right? Sagan was just another hand-rubbing shill for the elite.

I wonder if he had a big benis

A pig benis, petter to bork you with.

Carl seems to be trying to understand national boundaries by going far enough away that he cannot see them. A bold strategy :-)

By the same logic a child bleeding to death isn't a problem so long as you you can't easily see them.
