by Jalees Rehman in The Next Regeneration

Human sacrifice, inequality, and cycles of political power

by gdw in FictionalFieldwork

Human sacrifice to preserve inequality Statistically speaking (wait, wait, don’t click away, I know this is not the most enticing opening, but bear with me), you and me, we are not part of the 1%, or the 0.01%, that in most Western societies holds a disproportionate amount of influence and resources. Secretly, though, we want […]... Read more »

Yet more evidence for questionable research practices in original studies of Reproducibility Project: Psychology

Big Government NOT Linked to Greater Corruption

by Jeremiah Stanghini in Jeremiah Stanghini
