Repeatedly we are reminded of unreliable research in economics, social sciences, even some of the hard sciences.
Political agendas and intellectual passion can result in cargo cult science.
Some say that the lack of integrity in the academy reflects a general problem. Really?
Tell me this, if that would be so, how would we explain the dominance of leftist politics in Universities?
Is it possible that scientific pretense and the ruling class elite (read the excellent writing of Angelo Codevilla) makes academic inquiry even more corrupted by political agendas and the leftist problem of “lying for justice?”
