Some time ago I wondered about the legitimacy of the Irak war in regards to the non-existence of weapons of mass destruction. I contended that the WMD element was not a deceptive lie but merely the result of the groupthinking mechanism. On other occasions I tried to demonstrate that some symptoms of groupthink were not alien in climate science like for instance here. Would http://www.peterlilley.co.uk/text.aspx?id=1 [Broken] be reading the PW&A forums of PF? I see some remarkable simularities. Global Warming as Groupthink - The U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's process institutionalizes groupthink on a global scale. and So is AGW real or just another element in a long list of human behavior excesses? This list would include the revolutions and wars, anything that requires an enemy, exagarated by groupthink.
