In the private sector, we engineers and scientists have to be right. People’s lives depend on it. I am doing a lot of avionics and defense work these days which has to be perfect – or people will die. Companies will certainly die if the product is flawed.
The problem with academic researchers who have never worked in product R&D, is that they have no grounding in reality. Some believe that they can spew any BS which suits their imagined needs, and imagine that it is good enough. They have never felt the consequences of error, and have no concept of how much damage they are doing with their lies and hallucinations.
These same people depend on others (whom they imagine are evil) to keep the lights on and food coming to the store – yet they do everything they can to undermine them. I feel sorry for people who are so completely useless and self-destructive.
Get a real job, hippies. Grow up. Stop acting like scared pre-teenage girls. If you keep up your lies, your children will suffer the consequences of your actions. At some point you will succeed in destroying the infrastructure which society depends on.
