Big Science Goes Full Communist
Leading journals trash conservative leaders,
demand that communists be elected.
The corruption of the Big Science Cartel is complete. They would rather see global communism than any elected leader of a country espouse freedom of speech, free trade and national pride. Big Science is now the Politburo, and Big Media is its Pravda.
In this entry, we are not going to critique any flaws of conservative leaders who have been elected by popular vote, because that is not our specialty and focus. No leader is ever perfect. Rather, we want to show that Big Science is using its powerful influence to promote the election of avowed communists.
Political involvement in other country’s free elections should never be the focus of a “scientific” institution, except perhaps to speak up for the victims of totalitarian oppression.
There’s only one choice in Brazil’s election — for the country and the world (Nature, 25 Oct 2022). The editors of the world’s premier science journal claim, “A second term for Jair Bolsonaro would represent a threat to science, democracy and the environment.” Bolsonaro is a Brazilian nationalist who has resisted efforts of communist China to gain control of the country. Nature accuses him of being “A populist and a former army captain, Bolsonaro charged into office denying science,” because he doubts the consensus about climate change. He must be awful because Nature compares him to (gasp!) Donald Trump. So who do they want Brazilians to elect instead? “Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, the Workers’ Party leader” who is an avowed communist, a fact they fail to mention.
Vote against Amazon deforestation in Brazil (Science, 27 Oct 2022). One would think scientists should stay out of political matters in other countries, but Science, America’s leading journal and the arm of the AAAS (American Association for the Advancement of Science), joins Nature in trying to influence the Oct 30 election in Brazil. They hide their bias by urging Brazilians to vote “against Amazon deforestation” which is ostensibly Bolsonaro’s fault, though he denies it.
Update 10/31/2022: “Scientists cheer Lula victory over Bolsonaro,” Nature announced today with a photo of Lula’s victory rally. The subtitle reads: “Many hope that Lula will restore research funding and environmental protections in the country.” Others fear that Brazil will take the socialist path that turned one of the most prosperous and beautiful countries in South America into a poverty-stricken, inflation-ruined hell-house of starvation led by dictators: Venezuela. Time will tell.
What Xi Jinping’s third term means for science (Nature, 27 Oct 2022). The communist leader just appointed himself dictator for life in China. He is threatening an invasion of Taiwan possibly next year. He uses slave labor, steals American technology secrets, and is building up his military to unprecedented levels. China gets away with special treatment as a “developing” country despite its stated intent to overtake America as the world’s leading superpower. China may have released the coronavirus that killed millions around the world; even if not, it allowed it to spread internationally. Yet Nature mentions none of these things.
The editors can’t praise China and Xi Jinping enough because of “his vision for science and innovation to drive the country’s growth,” as measured by his commitment to increased funding for “science.” They know the political ideology in China; they use the word “communist” three times, but never with any disparagement. Who is at fault for lack of cooperation between superpowers? America! The editors blame “a long line of US-imposed barriers to the trade on which China would have relied to build its innovation economy.”
Commentator and Reagan staff member Mark Levin has documented the New York Time‘s support for Hitler, Stalin and Castro. Now, it appears that the leading Big Science journals are continuing that tradition of propping up some of the most evil dictators in the world today.
