"A President's hubris is rather like a
side effect of unprotected sex:
We all end up sharing it."

"Armageddon is not imminent. It is at hand
everywhere, but waged silently, by evil solidifiers in
familiar molds: aerobics instructors, homeowners
association presidents, door-to-door evangelists,
headmasters, senate subcommittees, the teleprompted.

Armageddon isn't war, it is an infestation."

"The things that will destroy America are peace at any price,
prosperity at any cost,
safety first instead of duty first,
the love of soft living,
and the get-rich-quick theory of life."

The following was written in Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark, by Carl Sagan. The book was first published in 1995.

"Science is more than a body of knowledge; it is a way of thinking. I have a foreboding of an America in my children’s or grandchildren’s time - when the United States is a service and information economy; when nearly all the key manufacturing industries have slipped away to other countries; when awesome technological powers are in the hands of a very few, and no one representing the public interest can even grasp the issues; when the people have lost the ability to set their own agendas or knowledgeably question those in authority; when, clutching our crystals and nervously consulting our horoscopes, our critical faculties in decline, unable to distinguish between what feels good and what’s true, we slide, almost without noticing, back into superstition and darkness."

Science Fiction cannot predict the future ... but it sometimes does a reasonably accurate job, with 20:20 hindsight, of predicting the present.
