Ayn Rand was right!!!!!!

Recommended Posts

Ayn Rand's excoriation of  academia  was totally on point.   Hugh Prichett is alive and at work in America, currently and woe unto us.

The proof of intellectual degradation  was solidly given by the famous  Sokal Hoax.  And if  this were not enough there was a follow-up with the Sokal Squared Hoax.

Please read the following articles:  https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2018/10/new-sokal-hoax/572212/  and

https://www.theatlantic.com/national/archive/2014/01/its-surprisingly-easy-get-fake-study-published-academic-journal/357006/?utm_source=feed

If Sokal did not give us a righteous scare, then Sokal Squared should have us pooping in our drawers. 

 

Live long and Prosper  \\//

Good things come from academia, and a whole lot of rancid shit does, too.

Here is the big problem with elitist clubs like academia--they protect the rancid shit with the same zeal they protect the good stuff.

They have no fundamental reality and/or truth standards (except for show), only standards for joining or staying on the outside.

And once inside, rancid shit has the same value as genius.

A lot of the "good stuff"  is considered heresy by the  Church of Social Justice.  Fortunately most of math and physics is so abstract that the SJW's do not understand it well enough to condemn it, so much of it gets published.  However any physics research that casts even a scintilla of doubt on anthropogenic global warming is treated as propaganda bought and paid for by the Evil Oil and Coal  Corporations.
