“To think is to group-think!”
A “Diversity and Climate Survey” of members of the Society for Personality and Social Psychology recently found some 90% of the group’s members self-identified as liberal, with less than 5% as conservatives (https://www.jamesgmartin.center/2019/11/blinding-themselves-the-cost-of-groupthink-in-social-psychology/). Remarked an observer, the SPSP “does not live up to its diversity values.” Ya think?
The survey also found that about a third of American “scholars” (LOL) thought it permissible and right to discriminate against conservatives in hiring.
What–is “Settled Science” just whatever it is that “everybody” thinks? And can we say, of any place or institution, that the more diversity is preached, the less diversity is found?
Yes and yes.
According to the Free and Independent Society of Academics Who All Have Exactly the Same Opinion on Every Conceivable Subject, you just can’t do psychology or any other science unless you’re way left of center. The society’s motto, “To think is to group-think,” pretty much sums up what “science” is all about, these days.
Just how intelligent are our intellectuals?
And are you sure you want to know the answer to that question?
