Sincerity Saves Social Sciences. Tell The Whole Truth, Hide Nothing

We need an enlightenment: truth and honesty in social sciences and politics
Zero Tolerance for Repression of True Speech

Reprinted with permission from sincerity.net

Media and politicians have the duty to mislead the citizenry by withholding truthful information. German thoroughness produced a precisely written formal  guideline out of this universally obeyed but mostly unspoken norm.

REPORTS ON CRIMES When reporting crimes, it is not permissible to refer to the suspect‘s religious, ethnic or other minority membership unless this information can be justified as being relevant to the readers‘ understanding of the incident. In particular, it must be borne in mind that such references could stir up prejudices against minorities. [GUIDELINE 12.1. by the German Press Council 1]

Shockingly, this gag order is widely supported by virtually all politicians world wide 2, media, police, government information offices, school teachers, they all obey this rule to omit information. 3

Sincerity.org has the radical position that sincerity in media reporting, in science, politics, crime reporting, police action and school policies is indispensable and absolutely unrenounceable.

Everything false can be derived from one false premise (f ⇒ f)

Thus we must not allow a single false or dubious assumption to creep into media, into social sciences.

We leave it to the esteemed reader, what potentially false dogma could have crept into social sciences.

f ⇒ f   From one false assumption everything else can be deduced as true, mathematical logic tells us1. Thus Sincerity.net demands “zero tolerance” for dishonesty.  We demand “zero tolerance” for anything that misleads people into potentially false beliefs.

Logical implication | Wikipedia

p-implies-q-the-conditional-truth-tableLogical implication and the material conditional are both associated with an operation on two logical values, typically the values of two propositions, which produces a value of false if the first operand is true and the second operand is false, and a value of true otherwise.

The truth table associated with the logical implication p implies q (symbolized as p q, or more rarely Cpq) is as follows2

More Than 200 Physicists Denounce Alessandro Strumia’s Sexist Lecture at CERN

Alessandro Strumia, Senior Physics Lecturer at veritable CERN research institute, committed a sacrilege and was promptly suspended. He spoke in a response to a workshop on gender issues1 organized by CERN.

A senior scientist has given what has been described as a “highly offensive” presentation about the role of women in physics, the BBC has learned.

At a workshop organized by CERN, Prof Alessandro Strumia of Pisa University said that “physics was invented and built by men, it’s not by invitation”.

It is highly offensive. But is it true? Do we always need to cite Madam Curie, who else is left? Where is the discussion about the truth of his statements and Alessandro Strumia’s  evidence?

He said male scientists were being discriminated against because of ideology rather than merit. [Continue at the informative but biased BBC article Cern scientist: ‘Physics built by men – not by invitation’]

Strumia has some interesting evidence, cited by the BBC in part and in more detail in the slides to Alessandro Strumia’s contentious speech
