Another great testimony from our long-gone Carl Sagan.

A great thinker like only few have been. You are gone now, but we cherish and remember the gift you brought to us. The gift of vision.

Great Minds, Great Words: We Humans Are Capable Of Greatness (Best of Carl Sagan's Cosmos, Part 20)

This is Carl Sagan reading from his book, "Pale Blue Dot: A Vision of the Human Future in Space". Director Michael Marantz shoots the timelapse for this piece, composes the music and edits.

"It will not be we who reach Alpha Centauri, and the other nearby stars, it will be a species very like us, but with more of our strengths and fewer of our weaknesses, more confident, far-seeing, capable, and prudent. For all our failings, despite our limitations and fallibilities, we humans are capable of greatness." (Carl Sagan)

    Maybe I can add something, adding to the title.A long time ago people found out that is is more profitable to herd people than sheep, using fear. Chickens do not lay more eggs if you scare them, but people give you more when they are afraid.The Romans had their "bread and games", saying that if people have food and entertainment they are not likely to revolt. Actually, the more freedom you give people, the better they perform, as slaves that think they are free.By now we could really be in trouble. "Freedom" is everywhere, we all have food and a tv internet. But the information that trinkels down from the owners of media and government are deceitful at best. Then you look at the internet for reality and it stinks. We are sheeple etc etc. Bad vibes are all around us.Where is the good news? Where are the inspirators like Dr. M.L. King "I HAVE A DREAM", John Lennon "PEACE IN", or the many others that inspired the Human race? Where is the love?It is right here inside all of us. None of the inspired people was really speacial as a person, but they CHOSE to change the world for the better.You can do it to, it is a choice.Love
