Perhaps the best indicator of how the experimental irreproducibility crisis threatens secular progressivism is how lopsided the political response to solving it has been.
Only by injecting more independent – dare I say even spiritual – thinking into our ossified educational system can we generate needed, if unpredictable, changes for all.
