"...According to the latest opinion polls, popular support of our Supreme Leader has risen from 84% to 97,6% in the past few weeks, so we may safely consider the world taken over."

Here where I live in Russia it's actually more difficult to come across the non-mad variety of sociology. Just google the numerous Moscow State University department of sociology scandals.

For a counter example showing what "real" mad science sociology would look like, c.f. Asimov's Foundation series.

In order to determine if mad sociology was a real mad science or not, the mad sociologists ran a poll which resulted in 55% of the polled sociology students answering that they believed so, Q.E.D.

Not to be TOO much of a downer, but there's an example of sociologists (this was back when anthropologists and sociologists were basically the same profession) committed at least one horrendous act of real life mad "science".

I'm pretty sure using your field of expertise to justify the holocaust counts as insane.

Take THAT, sociologists, next time you write a paper you may as well just write "SIEG HEIL" over and over again

To be fair, sociology has more things in common with national-socialism than with science.

To be unfair? Nazism is sociology at it's purest form.

I don't know about that. I remember all my sociology classes ending with the conclusion that we should eliminate or enslave all lesser races. It certainly made the debates on multiculturalism easy to resolve.
