I attended the March for Science in Washington DC today, and did the March down Constitution Ave as far as 10th Street. Note even the first picture above, “Truth” is part of the “eternal feminine” in the Paul Rosenfels polarity system for personal psychological growth. But this today is about policy.
When I arrived, I found a line, which I had thought was for the March itself. I hiked around some fences and paths to get to 17th St, on the Monument grounds, and found that the line was really set up to enter the grounds. There were only two checkpoints, and the line did get moving. At first I wondered if the low number of checkpoints was a way to keep the size down and reduce the political visibility of the march.
But after about an hour I finally made it to the entry point, and found they were only checking backpacks. The crowd was huge.

4 Rejection of the idea of alternative facts, and that policy must always be based on real facts; this does not trample on the personal experience of religion.
or “peer review”
I found later that someone made a sign of Jack Andraka’s book (“Breakthough“) quote “Science shouldn’t be a luxury, knowledge shouldn’t be a commodty“.
