We are now four years past the Occupy Wall St. movement. What is its lasting legacy? You might argue it has manifested itself in this way. I suggest that the movement is ultimately not going to be worthy of even an historical footnote. How much of today’s activism and even commentary on financial matters has to do with financial sector regulation?

On a somewhat related note – holding an unpopular or popular view does not mean you are anti- or pro-science. The only view that one can hold that is “pro-science” is having an extreme respect for the process of human reason in the search for an objective truth. I have always had the darndest time getting my mind around the fact that so many of the folks calling people “anti-science” for holding various positions also tend to have a relativistic philosophic position. I do not think these are views that are compatible, but certainly do welcome arguments to the contrary.
