"Imagine a future society where everything is perfectly logical. What could go wrong?"
I have said many times, anyone who uses the term "Scientism" to
criticize science has no real understanding of science. This article
proves my point: NOTHING about science says that "everything" is
logical. Science does not deny the value of beauty, poetry, love, art,
relationships, compassion (you, hopefully, get the point). To anyone
agreeing with this article:
informs reason (which includes scientific skepticism https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scientific_skepticism)
and humanism (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Humanism). Reason
and humanism, thus, are the platforms upon which actions which maximize the
well being of the world and its inhabitants are launched.

SCIENCE (from the Latin for 'knowledge') informs wisdom, reason and humanism. This is a 4-legged worldview within reality that maximizes well-being for individuals and society.
