Sauce?

Huh. That would work on economics [1].

I prefer a different tactic since few are intellectually honest.
You can get away with throwing crumbs for those.

1. I promise something based on my talents.
2. They laugh at me.
3. I wait.
4. It happens.
5. They cry.
6. I laugh.

Repeat as needed. Most things can only be hinted and still, they complain, over opinions.

History teaches us you can’t warn people, they’re stupid now as they were the first time.

1- However, this is assuming the data you need exists.

Heard of publication bias?

And what about grant application bias?

What about liberal privilege in academia?

And why would it be online, for free, no paywall or subscription service, where you can link it and any old pleb could peruse?

Why would the taxpayer need to see the fruit of their investment? Trust the experts. Why would they lie?

[And why wouldn’t a liar, lie about their sources too? Even the ones who give them don’t expect you to check.]

I try to source data for some posts but sometimes I have to say, trust me, I’ve seen it. Eventually you will too?

The reality means this is necessary for discussion’s sake. If they cared, they’d buy a textbook or pay an expert on the sly. The real 101 stuff doesn’t have a source, it’s just known.

But not by laymen. Which is a feature, where concentration of power is concerned.

This means you’re screwed. Rarely, good information slips through. They plug those leaks quickly.

Plenty of my old, good links are dead or distorted. Coincidence?

Many times, they don’t link from this site but work fine on others. We have tested this.

1. Be civil. 2. Be logical or fair. 3. Do not bore me.
