Well, that sure explains why no one really seems to know much about actual history...

It should be pointed out that Canadian institutions have something like twice as many phds teaching as do Americans. And the UK? Almost none.

That's actually a great thing for us and the main reason why we are such a mecca (pardon the islam) for foreign students

but white nattys cannot take pride in a country that dismisses them out of hand for the stupidity of their beliefs

I read a PhD’s dissertation, an educator with the Vancouver School Board , more gobbledegook then even Hoid is even capable off . Enough to make the head spin . Of course she is one of the stupidest people I have ever met .

over 50% vs your claim of 1 in 6.

that's quite a difference

50% vs 17%

no I don't think I will bother citing what is a well-known and easily obtainable fact.

Because you're full of shit, that's why. Anyone that comes back with that kind of bullshit over a simple request is clearly lying.
In fact, it is NOT a well known and easily obtainable fact. Google searching "Employment rate of history PhDs in Canada" brings ups NOTHING that confirms yet another one of your pulled-out-of-your-ass facts. But it's not exactly a state secret that lying ALT-left garbage can never back up their bullshit "facts".

In fact, the only hard numbers I could find included ALL PhDs, not just history. And even then fewer than 40% of PhDs in Canada are working in the post-secondary sector, with just over 18% in tenured or research positions. (Tenure = job security).
Quite frankly there Sparky, a PhD in history is pretty much useless unless you plan on being a history prof, or a self-proclaimed historian.

Its like being an auto mechanic. If you get hurt somehow and can't be an auto mechanic anymore you are unemployable.

It's like being a Hoid and moving goal posts again because you were proven wrong, again. The claim was how many are working in their actual field of study. YOUR baseless and unsubstantiated claim was 50% of history PhDs are working in their actual field of study.
So, you not only outright refuse to cite your claim that 50% of history PhDs are working in their field, you then move the goalposts to count any job someone with a PhD in history might have after being proven that you're full of shit.

But let's go with your 50% number. Not exactly a screaming endorsement to run out and get a PhD in history if only 50% of them have any kind of job whatsoever.

What Is the Peter Principle?

The Peter Principle is an observation that the tendency in most organizational hierarchies, such as that of a corporation, is for every employee to rise in the hierarchy through promotion until they reach a level of respective incompetence. In other words, a front-office secretary who is quite good at her job may thus be promoted to executive assistant to the CEO for which she is not trained or prepared for—meaning that she would be more productive for the company (and likely herself) if she had not been promoted.
The Peter Principle is thus based on the logical idea that competent employees will continue to be promoted, but at some point will be promoted into positions for which they are incompetent, and they will then remain in those positions because of the fact that they do not demonstrate any further competence that would get them recognized for additional promotion. According to the Peter Principle, every position in a given hierarchy will eventually be filled by employees who are incompetent to fulfill the job duties of their respective positions.





Most people will not turn down a promotion, especially if it comes with greater pay and prestige—even if they know they are unqualified for the position.
According to the Peter Principle, competence is rewarded with the promotion because competence, in the form of employee output, is noticeable, and thus usually recognized. However, once an employee reaches a position in which they are incompetent, they are no longer evaluated based on their output but instead are evaluated on input factors, such as arriving at work on time and having a good attitude.


Dr. Peter further argued that employees tend to remain in positions for which they are incompetent because mere incompetence is rarely sufficient to cause the employee to be fired from the position. Ordinarily, only extreme incompetence causes dismissal.




  • The Peter Principle is an observation that the tendency in most organizational hierarchies, such as that of a corporation, is for every employee to rise in the hierarchy through promotion until they reach a level of respective incompetence.
  • According to the Peter Principle, every position in a given hierarchy will eventually be filled by employees who are incompetent to fulfill the job duties of their respective positions.
  • A possible solution to the problem posed by the Peter Principle is for companies to provide adequate skill training for employees receiving a promotion, and to ensure the training is appropriate for the position to which they have been promoted.
