Planet of The Idiots: a lecture by Carl Sagan

Disclaimer: this lecture is actually entitled ‘The Age of Exploration’, but I think my title is more appropriate.

Let’s make a planet in which nobody is starving.
Let’s make a planet in which men and women have equal access to power.
Let’s make a planet in which no ethnic group has it over another ethnic group.
Let’s have a planet in which science and engineering is used for the benefit of everybody on the planet.
And my personal idiosyncrasy: let’s have a world in which we go to other worlds.

Thanks for this, Carl. Your wisdom and insight are sorely missed.
