It’s understood that technologically and the sciences often go ignored, underappreciated and misrepresented in America, particularly in politics and as a result economically and socially. As a result of my love of both Science and politics I’ve decided to study the social, moral and economical questions that arise from science for a political purpose of bettering America. Politicians in the most generic sense of the word control America’s laws, and while this may seem all and well at first glance, it fails to take in the massive selection bias that arises and the general ignorance that many of these classically trained, former law and political science oriented individuals. There are many such topics that have come to light today in the American political system and I personally think that we don’t have a scientifically diverse enough political standing to properly come to conclusions. particularly, though not exclusively from the scientific community. By becoming versed in both aspects I’m positive that I would be able to become a serious political leader, spearheading decisions for technological growth, such as in the market of advancing internet specific technologies as well as helping instate proper regulation of various biological advancements the scientific community will likely make. Furthermore, I would begin lobbying for more diversity in the election of individuals to office, allowing to hopefully not only include scientists to better push for a more technologically, and socially advanced America, but allow a wide range of people from multitudes of backgrounds to participate.
