  •  Now we get to the point of the matter. (0+ / 0-)

    Pardon me for interjecting here.  

    The more objective the subject matter being examined, the more rigorous the peer review, wouldn't you agree?

    What you're probably objecting to here is the "chilling" effect that political considerations would have upon science.  I understand that even if you can't express that point clearly.

    However, my point is this: Political Science is not science.  It's an artificial amalgam of many different disciplines that is actually more about human behaviour than anything else.  

    If your worried about academic freedom then express it as such. Stop pretending it is anything else and defend it wholeheartedly.  

    Your veiled attempt at defending bad science under the veil of academic freedom is disingenuous.

    Nothing worth noting at the moment.
