Then there's the basic underlying fact that humans want to think they're more powerful than they are.
Holy fuck I was hoping for this post.

God yes thank you for sharing your view that scientists are financially biased which is why they put forward views which run contrary to the preferences of the wealthiest and most politically powerful fucking interests in the world.

Now I can completely not take you seriously at all, this is fantastic.
