Political Science: Fact or Fiction
Political science is an oxymoron. Since politics often involves
secret alliances, hidden agendas, broken promises, equivocation, and
misrepresentation, it's hard to imagine that politics is scientific. And
it's not hard to imagine that politics is, in fact, inimical to science.
So I propose that science free itself from politics, and that politics
stop masquerading as science. Sadly, politics is mostly abstraction and
distraction without traction or action.
