This Week’s Quote: “Planes fly. Cars drive. Computers compute. If you base medicine on science, you cure people. If you base the design of planes on science, they fly. If you base the design of rockets on science, they reach the moon. It works…bitches.” —Richard Dawkins

This Week’s Quote: “The people who are speaking best to this are the psychologists who look at what it is like to live under constant gaze, or under the threat of constant gaze…it makes you different. It makes you more conformist. It makes you less willing to think new thoughts, to try new ideas. It stagnates society…Any social change you look at, whether it’s civil rights or marijuana legalization, whatever your issue is, it starts by people at this end where it is socially unacceptable doing it and having it be okay. And then it spreads slowly. Ubiquitous surveillance at this end stops that process cold.” —Bruce Schneier

This Week’s Quote: “Human history can be viewed as a slowly dawning awareness that we are members of a larger group. Initially our loyalties were to ourselves and our immediate family, next, to bands of wandering hunter-gatherers, then to tribes, small settlements, city-states, nations. We have broadened the circle of those we love…If we are to survive, our loyalties must be broadened further, to include the whole human community, the entire planet Earth. Many of those who run the nations will find this idea unpleasant. They will fear the loss of power.” —Carl Sagan

This Week’s Quote: “The Potter books in general are a prolonged argument for tolerance, a prolonged plea for an end to bigotry, and I think it’s one of the reasons that some people don’t like the books, but I think that it’s a very healthy message to pass on to younger people that you should question authority and you should not assume that the establishment or the press tells you all of the truth.” —J.K. Rowling
