Looking around at the current political landscape, one is tempted to say, "dream on, Neil." But it is a dream I too share.  Truth must precede opinion, not the other way around.  We find ourselves at the confluence of ignorance, apathy, faux-jadedness, political polarization, confirmation bias, tribalism, and blind, conspiratorial, skepticism which borders on relativism.

This rich seeing that Tyson is also a source of alternate facts.

I dream of a world where this is becomes the norm-
"Separation of politics and everything else."

That is a very important quote on politics that people should keep in mind.

Extreme ignorance and gullibility make this impossible.

The irony is that everyone will agree but feel like it's only others at fault. Surely their own opinions are based on facts and not the other way around..

Most people do not even seem to understand what facts are.

I couldn't agree more.

If I were to have a fanboy moment over meeting someone it would be Dr. Tyson. Thank You

I dream it too Neil. Too bad people are more likely to believe lies. After all people prefer to believe beautiful lies rather than ugly truths. I don't think that will change.

Seems that way at times...

Nicely said; very true! “To dream the impossible dream…”  No, I disagree!

Ah, one of my favourite contemporary figures, a fitting spokesperson for the legacy of the great Carl Sagan!  Such figures approach "culture hero" status.

Now that's a decent quote! :clap:

I might have to rethink it now.

Perhaps Tyson should've said "scientific truth" to avoid making inbred batshit morons like this think he's referring to their collection of fairy tales.
