Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
People could start by labelling it as a religion - a self-perpetuating irrational belief system that benefits a few at the expense of the vast majority of the population.

I've said before that the biggest failure in science over the last five decades has been its complete acceptance of pseudo-scientific economics as if it's actually a genuine science.

Instead of challenging the insane and multiply-refuted political beliefs that have slashed research funding, moved the talented into financialisation instead of research, and crippled the world economy, science chose to harangue spoonbenders, homoeopaths and dinosaur denialists instead.

And now there is no alternative, because no one of public significance has argued for one.

So it goes.
