US Senator Elizabeth Warren defended Israel bombing Palestinian schools and hospitals if it’s in self-dense. The Young Turks talked about why that view is too simplistic

Elizabeth Warren finally said something that is really wrong. I know America wants a base in Israel, but not at the cost of committing war crimes. Since we give the lion’s share of money and arms to Israel, America shares guilt for the war crimes Israel is committing. About 68 Israeli have died and about 2000 Palestinians, so Warren saying Israel is defending itself is total BS. Also, the little kids Israel killed on a beach with no Hamas anywhere near was not a defensive act itself either, it was targeting and killing children, a major war crime. I am ashamed that my country is condoning this!.

In Carl Sagan’s last interview with Charlie Rose before his death, Carl describes the psychological/emotional influence of his parents’ death and the importance of scientific literacy amongst our culture.
The interview took place in the wake of the publishing of his book he co-wrote with Ann Druyan, "The Demon-Haunted World: Science As A Candle In The Dark”, which the Los Angeles Times referred to as “…a manifesto for clear thought.”
Sagan’s profound and eloquent wisdom of rationality and skepticism couldn’t be more relevant today, as his words echo loudly across the perpetuated symptoms of scientific illiteracy which continue to shackle us…

“Personally, I would be delighted if there were a life after death, especially if it permitted me to continue to learn about this world and others, if it gave me a chance to discover how history turns out.”
However…
“Skeptical scrutiny is the means, in both science and religion, by which deep thoughts can be winnowed from deep nonsense…(and) We’ve arranged a civilization in which most crucial elements profoundly depend on science and technology.”
Furthermore…
“Our species needs, and deserves, a citizenry with minds wide awake and a basic understanding of how the world works.”…It is far better to grasp the universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring.”
