"Why the foundations of physics have not progressed for 40 years"

More blunt, tough talk from Sabine Hossenfelder.

And so, what we have here in the foundation of physics is a plain failure of the scientific method. All these wrong predictions should have taught physicists that just because they can write down equations for something does not mean this math is a scientifically promising hypothesis. . . .

And please spare me the complaints that I supposedly do not have anything better to suggest, because that is a false accusation. I have said many times that looking at the history of physics teaches us that resolving inconsistencies has been a reliable path to breakthroughs, so that’s what we should focus on.

Yeah, but sorting out the inconsistencies is real damn difficult.
