Ein Zitat von Will Storr

This monoculture we would have, if the hard rationalists had their way, would be a deathly thing. So bring on the psychics, bring on the alien abductees [...] – bring on a hundred of them. Christians or no, there will be tribalism. Televangelists or no, there will be scoundrels. It is not religion or fake mystics that create these problems, it is being human. Where there is illegality or racial hatred, call the police. Where there is psychosis, call [a psychiatrist]. Where there is misinformation, bring learning. But where there is just ordinary madness, we should celebrate. Eccentricity is our gift to one another. It is the riches of our species. To be mistaken is not a sin. Wrongness is a human right.
Will Storr, The Unpersuadables: Adventures with the Enemies of Science, New York 2014, S. 310.

Mal abgesehen davon, dass ich die Polizei nicht gerade für das Mittel der Wahl zur Lösung gesellschaftlicher und ideologischer Konflikte halte: Pretty much, yeah.
