Did you know a neurobiologist is the world’s most important job? How so? Because it’s a field that requires one to understand fully what it means to be a human being, and how we’re meant to live. And no one is better at it than Stanford University professor Robert Sapolsky. He’s the world’s foremost leading expert in what makes us human, and, how we’re really meant to live. Heck, if he was running for president instead of Trump – America truly would become great again. I mean just listen to some of his quotes that speak to some of the world’s biggest issues, and see for yourself (if you can) why he’s just the kind of genius this world needs as a leader.
