Think about it

Professors Keil and Lehrer ask:
Have we arrived at the point where thinking critically has become a dangerous activity?

If poetry is the art of creating imaginary gardens with real toads, then social science tries to find the toads in society's gardens -- which turns out not to be a very popular activity these days with some politicians and prosecutors.
