DROZ AND SCHALIN: When consensus trumps science
Trading evidence for politics is a harbinger of decline
Question of the Day
The development of the modern scientific method during the Enlightenment resulted in enormous progress for mankind. Deviating from strict adherence to the time-tested scientific process will result in an equally dramatic upheaval — only this time, it will be a decline.

John Droz Jr., a retired physicist and an environmental activist living in North Carolina, is a senior fellow at the American Tradition Institute in Washington, D.C. Jay Schalin is director of state policy analysis at the Pope Center for Higher Education Policy (popecenter.org) in Raleigh, N.C.
