There needs to be more diversity in science.
There needs to be more science in politics.
There needs to be more science in social interaction.
Because science & diversity are what can save us from despair, precisely by not offering one simple answer, but by offering participation in facing the very complex demands of life. All too often, conflict is sustained by destroying all possibilities to learn. The less you know, the more succeptable you are. Education enables independence. Independence enables contact.
The tales we tell each other merge & shape the narratives of our existance. Diversify your collection of tales.

 

And keep in mind the difference between empathy and compassion (The latter doesn´t make you racist. The former most likely will.).
