You know what the BEST part about being a individual with the ability to be able to make up our own MINDS and forming our EDUCATED opinion when we are faced with multiple sources to choose from. WE the consumer are perfectly able to make a CHOICE with out worrying if you’ve upset a minority of people. Individualism is not their strong point.
This brings me to Individualism vs. Collectivism .
There are two basic ways of understanding the relationship between individuals in a group. The first way is individualism, which states that each individual is acting on his or her own, making their own choices, and to the extent they interact with the rest of the group, it’s as individuals. Collectivism is the second way, and it views the group as the primary entity, with the individuals lost along the way.
Your probably wondering what the frick ‘n frack this has to do with- It’s about the controversy of choosing which or even multiple dog bite statistic sources. Surely this can’t be a issue- well it is.
According to Kenneth Phillips at Dog Bite Law and Colleen Lynn at Dogsbite.org – the only source YOU should use are her statistics and of course- Merritt Clifton- (even though he’s surrounded by controversy and debunked numbers ) and ONLY those.
Let’s look at some comments:
Now- let’s see what Dog Bite Law think of anyone else’s statistics-
Even though on his web page Mr. Phillips writes-
Three commonly accepted sources of information about canine homicides are the CDC, Merritt Clifton (editor of Animal People), Colleen Lynn (author of dogsbite.org), and Karen Delise (author of Fatal Dog Attacks). However, none of their figures agree. This is largely because of the difficulties involved in gathering dog bite statistics.
So- wait. There are OTHER commonly uses sites other than Dogsbite.Org? If that’s true- why is everyone who questions Dogsbite are attacked?
Aw- good ‘ole not so charming Harry steps in and what does he do? Of course he says NCRC is not credible and then proceeds to direct this person straight to…. Yup. Dogsbite.org-
Just to see why DOGSBITE.ORG tries to destroy the credibility of a leading source I took a glance at the Advisors of NCRC. It’s pretty impressive!
Let’s look at the advisors for Dogsbite.org list of professionals- – wait- studies and reports? Not actual professionals? That can’t be right- let’s check again-
Here? – nope… How about the written testimony to Congress should include professionals right? Eh- just Colleen Lynn?
