I have argued consistently for scientific literacy. After exploring the statistical side of scientific reporting, I would argue that we need as much education on statistics as we do in raw science. The millions we spend on public-awareness campaigns highlighting risk are meaningless if we do not also invest in educating the public on how to manage and mitigate their risk.
It is time we inspect the basic motives to why we engage in this fight against injustice. Whether it is on grounds of human decency and equality, or because we are compelled by our faith; let's recalibrate our moral compass so it is not led astray by our tendency to strive for the sensational stories.
