I love Judith Bell's answer. I wish more think tanks operated like this. There can be a huge disconnect between academic study and the realities of everyday people. More think tanks need to get out of their bubbles and strengthen their work with a grassroots connection.

Think tanks are independent research institutions required to clear the obfuscation caused by university research institutions.

Think tanks are places where people write op-eds and go on TV to be pundits. Duh. No joke.

Think tanks are weapons of war, usually wielded by the state, used to wage war on innocent people using the weapons of papers, research, proposals, etc. There are some defensive think tanks used by the people to defend themselves but those are the exception to the rule.
