Power without restraint leads to corruption, often through the operation of collusive games of mutual self deception. How a profession is perceived by the public at large may be strongly influenced through educational channels, as members of the profession control the definition of the curriculum and the certification of professional educators who play central roles in training each new generation of professionals. The difficulty in maintaining wise public perceptions of a profession is especially great in the instance of scientific professions which are dominated by people who are compulsively preoccupied with objectivity; for the professionals are poorly equipped to reflect wisely upon their profession, and so they are prone to play collusive games of mutual self deception and congratulation. The public at large finds that many benefits flow from the scientific professions, and the public is ill equipped to be critical of the scientific cornucopia; and thus the public at large is prone to buy into the non-objective self-perceptions of scientists who are ill equipped to be wisely reflexive, because reflex- ivity is essentially non-objective, taboo. Thus, it is important for the public at large to seek assistance from all professions to help inform the educational process to promote unbiased educational perceptions of each and every profession; each profession contributing to a balance perception of each and every other profession. No profession should have an unbalanced control of how it is represented to to school children, college students, university students and graduate school students. Every profession should contribute to how every other profession is perceived and represented within the educational process. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
