Woke "Science" : Send In The Clowns!

Post by Riddick » 08-01-2021 01:47 PM

“Follow the science” has become one of the most tiresome clichés of our time. It didn’t begin with the climate hustle and won’t end with the government’s COVID power lust, which is doing more than the endless hyperbole of the climatistas to reveal to the public what a clown show “authoritative” science has become.

The scientific community, like most of the establishment today, has allowed itself to become politicized. Of course, lots of things in the world of political and social “values” can be replicated, like socialism. Just how many times do we need to replicate the East Germany/North Korea/Cuba/Venezuela experiment before we reach a solid conclusion—a “consensus” even—that socialism doesn’t work?

Don’t expect many “social” scientists, who attempt to replicate the empiricism of the “hard sciences” with extraordinary zeal, to recognize the repeat failures from these replication studies; most of “social” science today seems dedicated to denying or obfuscating what anyone with common sense can see. Which is why in social and urban policy, we appear to be back to the good old days of 1960s-style “root causes” liberalism, when in fact the root cause of a lot of our social ills is . . . liberalism. No wonder liberals don’t—and won’t ever—get it.

Meanwhile, in medical schools, there is increasing pressure for professors to stop referring to “male” and “female.” Biological sex itself now lacks an objective basis in the progressive mind. NASA needs to retrieve the old Voyager satellite, which includes depictions of “male” and “female” for any aliens who may come across the probe in a million years or so. Clearly this is Wrongthink. We wouldn’t want to give aliens the wrong idea about humans.

Never mind the massive politicization problem in the sciences today. How much is simply faked? Please remind me again of why we should “follow the science” on matters of politics and policy? What a total clown show.

There are none so asleep & oblivious to the real world as those who are & would be Woken.
