I am hard pressed to argue the idea that more research is needed in this feild of study. Unfortunately, empirical science is not of high value in social sciences. My only issue with Dr. Levy's post is the idea that voting is not acceptable to determine normalcy when democracy is resting on this as a fundamental. The idea that politics will not affect the right and wrong of an issue is fallacious at best. What we as scientists need to do is separate biased values from empirical reasoning. This makes difficult for work in reading "all the research" as some of the research on both "sides" is more than likely biased politically.
