To wit: the "political" of political science is extraordinarily subjective and prone to monumental speculation rooted in pet biases and highly personal and partisan interpretations and analyses. Throw into this unholy mix a lot of what the Greeks called the “potential optative,” a grammatical construction in which one is essentially dealing with a lot of should haves, would haves, and statements contrary to fact, or ultimately points of fact which are essentially and solely the result of wishful thinking at best, and at worst, are whims, caprices and personal biases and preferences not based in fact. Well, I personally do not find anything scientific about wishful thinking and lame-brained, highly personalized, highly subjective, pet theories and tendentious and partisan biases, whims and caprices. And by the way, I am being rather kind and gentle here; in fact, extraordinarily kind to those many fraudulent practitioners of political, so-called, supposed science.
And as for science itself, real, true science, there is a very long history and tradition of mindless, procrustean conformism to essentially unscientific conclusions, analyses and beliefs which, quite often are politically motivated and professionally driven. When it comes to science, there has always been a consensus of likeminded, scientific lemmings; in fact, a veritable legion of suck-up, toady, kiss-ass, brown-nosing Uriah Heaps within the realm and very ranks of science, alas, since the very dawn of time itself. And many of these toady, suck-up, kiss-ass, brown-nosing scientific lemmings have on many and numerous occasions proven themselves to have been a very nasty lot indeed. Just look back to Galileo and the Church, but we need not just pick on the Church either. In fact that’s just too easy a task and too simpleminded, like taking candy from a baby or expecting a monkey to write Shakespeare. There are also Scopes and Darrow, a true three ring circus if I have ever seen one; as well as the current unassailable, Darwinian orthodoxy; and the ascendency of moral relativism (truly in my estimation, the most evil philosophy ever devised by humankind) wrongly devised from the Einsteinian science of relativity (which again, in my estimation, is a distortion of physics and pure mathematics; to be clear, not Einstein, of course, but the relativists); or extremely doctrinaire, secularism and the so-called, supposed pure reason of postmodernist, materialism and dialecticalism.
The point is, there is real, bonafide, legitimate and true science which is solely the province and realm of a very few; merely a handful of true and legitimate scientists. While the vast majority of so-called, supposed scientists are populated by vast hordes of phonies and intellectual louts and frauds and pseudo scientists whom I liken to those infamous Himalayan mountains of intellectual masturbation, refried-shit-for-brains and a whole ration of unscientific "should haves" and "would haves" full of highly subjective and highly personalized predilections, preferences, biases, etc..
