carl sagan on polarization in the skeptical movement

“The chief deficiency I see in the skeptical movement is its polarization: US versus THEM [and] the sense that we have a monopoly on the truth; that those other people who believe in all these stupid doctrines are morons; that if you’re sensible, you’ll listen to us; and if not, to hell with you. This is nonconstructive. It does not get our message across. It condemns us to permanent minority status.” ― Carl Sagan
