The ruling class plays us for chumps using the science card. Natural science is ‘wrong’ because of the flying spaghetti monster or the Loch Ness monster, or some other mirage disproves it. Whereas economics, a ‘science’ that really is a Loch Ness monster of nonsense proves the need for wealth confiscating ploys like CDS, CDO’s, VAR, central bank fraud, etc. In both cases: as in the case of ‘science doesn’t exist but the Loch Ness monster does,’ and the case of ‘science does exist in economics and that’s why we can predict our need to confiscate your wealth,’ the end result is the same; upward drift of power to the top. To right this wrong, take the opposite position. Evolution is real and the efficient market theory and other economic pseudo science is false. If the masses adopted these truths; wealth and power would flow in the opposite direction, from the top to middle and bottom.
I notice that most (nearly all) of the comments are defending the ‘reality’ of myths and the sanctity of religious, misplaced piety and none are questioning the fake science of economics. This proves my point. Most people are getting played for chumps on two fronts: they are being drawn into cartoon religious debates that question unequivocal scientific truth while simultaneously having their pockets picked via economic ‘science’ that has no validity, and has proven to be an unmitigated disaster, yet very few question it. You should be afraid of Paul Krugman and stop obsessing over Jesus. You should be demanding freedom from Wall St. tyranny and stop trying to ignore AGW (because it might mean taking some responsibility for yourself).
