Dr. Diedrik Stapel's Academic Fraud Indicts the Entire Ideology of the New Left
At the end of November, the universities unveiled their final report at a joint news conference: Stapel had committed fraud in at least 55 of his papers, as well as in 10 Ph.D. dissertations written by his students. The students were not culpable, even though their work was now tarnished. The field of psychology was indicted, too, with a finding that Stapel’s fraud went undetected for so long because of “a general culture of careless, selective and uncritical handling of research and data.” If Stapel was solely to blame for making stuff up, the report stated, his peers, journal editors and reviewers of the field’s top journals were to blame for letting him get away with it. The committees identified several practices as “sloppy science” — misuse of statistics, ignoring of data that do not conform to a desired hypothesis and the pursuit of a compelling story no matter how scientifically unsupported it may be.
Timothy AdamsRead the article, the author does an excellent job of breaking down the logic behind Stapel's deceptions. Basically, one: Stapel never made a claim that APPEARED unreasonable, two, Stapel used arguments that fell in line with how anti-traditionalist, anti-nationalist, anti-Western activists, THOUGHT the results should be...In other words, white males would always be bigoted, racist, and backward, while minorities (whether racial or identity groups), were always progressive, multicultural, and modern.
Timothy AdamsHow did he get away with it? Well, since the established political and financial order WANT a unified government under the control of a few, unelected, elites (the supposed technocracy), and since Cultural Marxism, with it's critical theory and identity politics is the current majority opinion in most pseudo-aristocratic circles, the academic and intellectual watchdogs who were supposed to validate this guy's work prior to publication, or who should have critiqued it afterwards, never bothered. After all, they wanted what he said to be true: basic subjective fallacy bias in action. No different from the ideological drivel of the Stalinists of the 1960s in the USSR, or the Nazis of the 1930s.
Timothy AdamsMeanwhile, anti-racists like Tim Wise, and multiculturalists like these "culture directors" in Europe, who want to forcibly change Western societies to fit their mold, quote this guy's work as validation for their beliefs.
