It’s worth picking a philosophy that’s self correcting.
The antidote to junk science is more science, good science. Science is a self-correcting process, where transparency leads to improvement.
The antidote to bad engineering is more engineering. Engines and bridges run better today than they did a hundred years ago.
The antidote to blind obedience to unexamined edicts and principles, though, is not more obedience. It doesn’t self correct. It gets worse.
[For those interested in constructive innovation instead of obedience, please consider the altMBA. Today’s the early deadline for our next session.]
