Yes Hip, and it fits the definition of Zombie Science. That is when political or financial interest drive science, rather than evidence and reason. All this is playing out in the UK, and has been for years. The US is next. After that, the world? At some point it has to be stopped. At some point it will be stopped. How long that will take is one issue, and how much damage it will cause until then is the other. Also there is a secondary issue that these problems resurface again and again, no matter how often they are challenged and beaten. Those supporting hysteria as a diagnosis, for example, have sometimes been jubilant that all those claiming that hysteria is a dead diagnosis have failed, hysteria is still here. Zombie Science, pseudoscience, psychogenic babble, the pseudoscience of economics, its all connected. There is a very good chance that GWI vets and ME patients can find support in organizations like Black Triangle in the UK.
