Junk science is how government controls us
Junk science rules the world today.
Governments use scientific fraud to control the masses and expand their power.
Consider food. Many socialist countries are fanning the flames of ignorance by opposing genetically modified food. We used to call this agriculture. Government controlled food will lead to starvation, and the government will blame capitalists.
Look at how government controls on water in California exacerbated the cyclical drought. Instead of building reservoirs to serve a population that doubled in 40 years, the government played god by trying to keep the delta smelt from extinction. Leave it to government to oppose Darwin.
In his farewell speech, President Eisenhower said in 1961: "Today, the solitary inventor, tinkering in his shop, has been overshadowed by task forces of scientists in laboratories and testing fields. In the same fashion, the free university, historically the fountainhead of free ideas and scientific discovery, has experienced a revolution in the conduct of research. Partly because of the huge costs involved, a government contract becomes virtually a substitute for intellectual curiosity. For every old blackboard there are now hundreds of new electronic computers. The prospect of domination of the nation's scholars by Federal employment, project allocations, and the power of money is ever present – and is gravely to be regarded. Yet, in holding scientific research and discovery in respect, as we should, we must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific-technological elite."
He was prophetic.
