How many times did we hear the mantra ‘believe the science’ in this past year? And is there any quicker way to discredit public health recommendations than to overtly politicize them?
We all know there’s a wide gulf between objective science (what the data can give us) and official policy (what people do with that information).
Data — even the most reliable data — doesn’t come with policy advice built into it. That information must be filtered through people, and personalities, and political agendas, and competing objectives, and any number of other factors before it comes out the other side as a political agenda.
Even something so basic as differences in evaluating how risk trade-offs should be balanced can take these processes in wildly different directions. But zealots will say the *other* guy is being unscientific.
