XKCD vs. John Campbell
According to XKCD, the lack of use of psychic phenomena is a major argument against the reality of such woo:
Eventually, arguing that these things work means arguing that modern capitalism isn't that ruthlessly profit-focused.On the other hand, according to John Campbell editorials, businesses do use psychic phenomena … but keep it secret.
On the gripping hand (am I overusing that phrase?), the mainstream media haven't uncovered that. That means:
- They're missing an opportunity to do some scandal mongering (superstitious capitalists are wasting YOUR money!).
- A bunch of humanities majors are missing an opportunity to bash the people who passed the classes they flunked.
