Yes, to be sure, there are, of course, a few golden nuggets of worthwhile knowledge and wisdom contained within them; but the vast and predominant amount of worthless, illegitimate data et facta, and so-called, supposed knowledge is so Himalayan in nature, in both quantity and lack of quality, and the effort required to retrieve them so extraordinarily and exponentially so vast and difficult that it is simply not worth the effort. In this regard allow me to offer this analogy: I liken the worthiness and verisimilitude, efficacy and benefit of the social sciences to a pet theory of mine created almost forty years ago. I call it the “Forty Million Monkeys with Forty Million Typewriters in a Room Unified Field Theorem or Thesis.”
The central and salient theme of this thesis (of this Unified Field Theorem) is basically that, if one were to lock up forty million monkeys in a single, but of course, rather large, nay, make that a rather gigantic and humongous room, and hand out one typewriter to each and every single one of them, at least one of these monkeys, by the simple rules of probability, chance, numbers, statistics and above all else, pure, dumb luck, that at least one of them would become the second coming of Shakespeare or an even greater and more powerful inheritor to Einstein. In the case of the former, at least one of these monkeys would write sonnets and poetry and plays which would far surpass even Shakespeare himself in their greatness and grandeur by magnitudes of worlds; and in the case of the latter, at least one of these monkeys would take scientific relativity and physics to an even greater and higher level, and exponentially so, beyond Einstein his very self.
Well, our universities and colleges have been attempting this procrustean, Panglossian experiment for over a hundred years now, and I really don’t see too many, in fact any, Shakespeares or Einsteins at all running around their universe of college and university campuses; or in the real world of ours, of cities and factories, businesses and states and other assorted real places grounded in reality (mostly; you know there are Disneyland and Washington, D.C. and many other fantasy theme parks too).
Which to be fair is rather unfair to both college students and their professors and of course, to monkeys, especially so to monkeys. Why? How? Because those monkeys, I mean people, in our colleges and universities are supposed to be smart, la crême de la crême, (especially and particularly, the social, so-called, supposed scientists) whom we highly and overly value; these armies and legions of worthless, non-productive intellectuals, these battened hens in a coop, these feckless dilettantes and worthless clowns, these spoiled and pampered, over-paid, under-worked, prima donnas, these second and third-rate monks in ivory cloisters; these politically correct intellectual, philosophic and ideological fascists, these fashionably chic, Marxist and Neo-Marxist "radiclibs" to whom, as a consequence of our over estimation, appraisal and valuation (of them), we give much too much credence and power. We not only listen to these intellectual, academic and professional fools, charlatans, quacks and witchdoctors, but we also heed their advice, recommendations, pet theories, phony cures and smarmy panaceas and pay them princely sums for their professional incompetence, quackery and buffoonery.
