Quantitative mehods are a big fat lie

Quantitative methods are a lie. The devil is always in operationalisation, the stage where you decide how to turn observable world into numbers, which is always inevitably based on unselfconscious ideological choices, beliefs and affects. Besides, there's the sheer imbecility of trying to reduce the entire complexity of reality to a relation between two variables. Hence, all quant-based sciences are pseudo-sciences or simply mouthpieces of power dressed up as a science.
