A very short opinion piece

Maybe what "anthropology" needs are less articles and PR pieces that basically say "here is why anthropology is so important in the modern world" and more well-written, well-executed, interesting pieces that happen to have an author whose tagline says: "X is an associate professor at the University of X" and nothing more.

Like the old saying for writing goes: Show, don't tell.

The work itself will illustrate what anthropology is all about far more effectively than any statement ever could.
