40. I have political science professors who have not heard of Smedley Butler.
They tend to dismiss me and my arguments as "normative" and "polemic", and question if I want to be a social scientist or an "advocate."

I find being normative, polemic, and advocative to be lesser impediments to conducting scientific study than being ignorant, gullible, and egotistical but, as they say, YMMV.
