Facts only exist while they fit the required frameworks of rich and powerful people in science - Just look at how universities have warped science over the past years. Science should only exist as a means to identify the truth, not to become the truth itself. Decisions about how people should live and be governed are something that should have no basis in science. If leaders keep making stupid decisions because of that, well, that's the privilege of the people who put them there. If they don't understand science, then that's the fault of the educational system isn't it? Education should also be expanded to include matters of law and medicine prior to high school graduation, but that's another matter still.
