Except we can't analyse a book in the same way we analyse a boson, or a molecule in the way we analyse a song.

Differences between even Chemistry and Physics are so great that if you want to go back to the old terms, literary analysis is science, it uses peer reviewed evidence based thinking, just like all of our fields of study.

This is the country in which people dig up their loved ones and murder their children so that there is something to eat. A place where the populace have been starving to death since 1994. A country which wishes to destroy one of the largest and most advanced cities ever built, then ethnically cleanse their neighbour and soon may have the means to do it. A small country the UN could feed with pocket change.

This could be fixed rather easily as soon as china is on board.

The solution of this problem is trivial and is left as an exercise for the reader.
