Sociocultural discourse in science: Flawed assumptions and bias in the CLASH model.
In this commentary, we contest Van Lange and colleagues' central claim that "countries closer to the equator are generally more violent." We point to the lack of credible empirical evidence for this assertion and suggest that the CLASH model uses the language of science to lend false credibility to a problematic sociocultural discourse.
