Another Mundane Manifesto

Posted by Trent Walters at 4:55 AM
Sociologist Wayne Brekhus antedates our Mundane Manifesto with a different Mundane Manifesto aimed at getting sociology to look at the majority of society instead of distorting our view of society by only looking at the fringes. This sounds not too unfamiliar.
"I argue that the extraordinary draws disproportionate theoretical attention from researchers. This ultimately hinders theory development and distorts our picture of social reality."

This assumes no nefarious political agenda on Brekhus' part but only the aim of capturing a more realistic view of our future present reality.
