As students become more mature they slowly begin to perceive that there are patterns of fundamental dishonesty in their technocratic society. They see that those patterns are pervasive in the characters of scientists who have been trained to be technocrats. They become aversive towards people who embody such technocratic patterns of thought and emotionally impoverished living. The decisions of young people not to focus their attention upon scientific questions are rarely made at the conscious level. It is unlikely that exit interviews will elicit the reasons for their decisions, because the people conducting the exit interviews are likely to be perceived by the young people as unworthy of trust---too much associated with scientists whom they feel they cannot trust with integrity. No scientific study is likely to uncover the reasons for which adolescents shy away from scientists; for there is alienation standing in the way of honest communication regarding those reasons. Alienation between adolescents and scientists cannot be studied scientifically by scientists who are alienated from the adolescents. The alienation is a reality about which scientists and adolescents cannot be objective. No amount of scientific analysis will lead to successful understanding and control. Here real wisdom involves understanding what cannot be controlled, and what we are fools to try to control. But technocrats are too addicted and dishonest to seek such wisdom which would expose their lack of integrity. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
