“Alexander Hamilton and Thomas Jefferson hated each other so much. But that hate that they had for each other did not come before the love of their country.” -David Scott
You can’t make America great ‘again’ without looking at what made us great in the first place. It wasn’t industry or manufacturing or our morals or our military might; it was our investment in science, research and development that gave us the capabilities to do the extraordinary.
Investing in knowledge and fundamental research enabled all the applications that have arisen since. So if you’re serious about making America the greatest nation on Earth, maybe the solution isn’t to try and support the conclusions you’re predisposed to, but rather to support the scientific process and accept whatever answers the scientific endeavor bring to us.
