That's a pretty stupid quote. Why should everyone waste time knowing exactly how the technology in their life works? That's completely counterproductive and inefficient. Civilization began when man developed division of labor. Rather than have everyone be equally equip to do ******* , each would hone their skills in a particular area and work in collaboration with others.

The same principal applies today; why should everyone know how their technology works? Are we supposed to spend years studying advanced electronics and computer programming so as not to be condescended to by Mr Sagan? No, we've got to learn something useful so that we might contribute something to society. Not that those things aren't useful, but they'd hardly be if every man on earth had a degree in electrical engineering and nobody to fill every other niche of society.

It's easy to look down from your pedestal on the uneducated peons and say "Bro, do you even science?", but before you do I suggest you take a moment to think who made your clothes, wrote the music on your iPod, picked your vegetables, build your house, because they sure as hell don't have or need a background in science to serve their purpose.
