In the twentieth century, Walter Lippman warned of the “bewildered herd” that would trample itself without external control, and in the Encyclopedia of the Social Sciences the eminent political scientist Harold Lasswell warned elites of the “ignorance and stupidity of the masses” and called for them not to succumb to the “democratic dogmatisms about men [sic] being the best judges of their own interests.” These perspectives have nurtured neoliberal spectator democracy, which deters or prohibits the public from managing its own affairs and resolutely controls the means of information.

If you happen if another shark approaches the octopus. 5) Scientists need to communicate their findings and observations and share their discoveries. Until social scientists become as respectful of a finding of null effect as they are of a finding of a significant effect, until they treat it as equally worthy of publication and tenure and esteem within the profession, we’re going to be mired in a morass of research using convenience samples, small populations and questionable techniques, research that’s rarely replicated and that serves more to provide grist for literature reviews than truly to advance knowledge, research that is not only a waste of money but a waste of the time and effort of some very capable people.
