IS THERE ANY WAY TO DISCREDIT THOSE WHO ARE ALWAYS WRONG? | 2002-07-20
No policy social science professors come up with ever works. Busing, rehabilitation of those innocent victims of Society we call "criminals," getting rid of phonetics in schools, all were disastrous failures recommended almost unanimously by the professors.
Hundreds of other professor-recommended social policies, like experiments in education and the old welfare policy, were all WORSE than failures. Every one of them was a human disaster.
But every time a new professor's policy comes up, people take it seriously. And guess who every network, including Fox, goes to ask about it?
The professors, of course.
For two thousand years, if a patient went to a highly educated physician with pneumonia, what the Learned Doctor did was to BLEED him. That's how George Washington died. But the people still kept coming and they still kept dying because the guy had a title and the guy had a degree.
Until we learn to stop going to people who are always wrong because they got a degree, we will continue to let them destroy us.
