Sexual Abuse: A Journal of Research and Treatment, Vol. 10, No. 3, 1998 Editorial One of the properties that marks our species as unique on this planet is our ability not only to think but to store and share ideas and experiences with other humans in an interactive culture. Through this sharing, we mag- nify the power of our thoughts; this journal and others like it are bold examples of such sharing. That is why articles such as those by Studer and Reddon in this issue shine as brightly as Venus on a moonless summer's night. These authors examine a simple premise: Does treatment change risk prediction? Their results, taken together with those of Proulx et al. (1997) and Hanson (1997), indicate that something in the right direction is happening in cognitive/behavioral treatment programs for sexual offenders. The United States at present spends approximately $75 billion on sci- ence, a third of it devoted to medical research (Sarewitz, 1996), yet there is no public discussion of how these sums, of galactic proportion, should be allotted. Science insists that only scientists decide. Peer review is sacred be- cause the unpredictable benefits of basic science can be appreciated only by scientists.
