Nature: Huge survey reveals pressures of scientists’ working lives

“A survey of more than 4,000 scientists has painted a damning picture of the culture in which they work, suggesting that highly competitive and often hostile environments are damaging the quality of research.”


Not to mention blinding the scientists against the changing world around them. Some said that this is the intent, so that smart people could become occupied with their own proclivities while the super-rich could continue opressing the not-so-smart people. :frowning:
