The Scientific Method in an Idiocracy
Unfortunately, most journalists, social scientists, school teachers, and members of the public do not know how it is supposed to work. That means your children will never learn how a disinterested system of epistemology should work. Worse, they will never suspect that that is something they should have been taught. They will live their lives believing that political correctness is the most important thing in life.
Unless they are lucky. Because if they are lucky, political correctness will be knocked on its can, and ideological diversity--the only kind of diversity that matters in schools and universities--will be restored to systems of learning and education. Then perhaps science has a ghost of a chance to rise above politics and help us to find the next level.
The Idiocracy will be happy to serve us our future, if we persist in political correctness.
