There is no quick fix that will strengthen the standing of real science and dissemination of the ability of thinking along scientific lines. Realistically speaking this will be for a minority, not for the majority. One obstacle is that the press and media are dominated by people who have been shying away from science and into the simple world of emotions and gut feelings based on simple and isolated, and sometimes even distorted, facts. A counterweight against this will have to start in the teaching of children. It is probably impossible to strengthen the sciences if the teachers are recruited from students who also have been shying away from learning mathematics, science and technology.
Maybe it all boils down to laziness?
