Abstract: This paper explains why far-infrared and sub-mm polarimetry should be used instead of background starlight polarimetry in order to map the magnetic field in the dense (greater than 103 cm-3) regions of the interstellar medium. Results indicating the inadequacy of background starlight polarimetry, as well as the promise of far-infrared polarimetry, are discussed.
