"I'm sick of listening to Republicans and Democrats base their policy on opinion, and not on factual evidence or the lived experience of their constituents. All of the most detrimental social and environmental threats against the human species come from this highly bipartisan ignorance, and the total misconception that opinion has any bearing over reality - climate change is real; cannabis legalization is an inherently good thing; and we could all do with learning a little more about each other's cultures and religions. I think that would make all of us a lot happier; and I think we could all do with being a lot nicer to each other."
