I love how a lot of people tend to think of science as infallible, self-correcting, and altruistic.
It's a human institution and therefore IS corrupt. I can't think of a single human institution that isn't corrupt.
Peer reviewed scientific studies sure haven't thwarted big pharma and its attempts to turn our populace into zombies with no cares or emotions. In
fact they seem to be gaining steam.......
Wouldnt just a wonderful institution such as science be able to see the BS in what's going on?
Do this many people really need mind altering drugs at the expense of sobriety? An enormous percentage of Americans are on "prescription" mind
altering drugs and I think most people would agree that it blunts a persons ability to care. If you're flooded with serotonin all day are you really
going to be operating at the level you should be? Will you ever learn anything when you're just artificially happy all of the time?
Just one data point to show that science is intertwined with academia which is intertwined with the government(and its funding). Can we really trust
these powerful human institutions with so much vigor? Do we really think the outputs of scientific academia are all pure truth? Are the decision
makers at the top really all that objective?
They want us to be confused and complacent. Both sides of this topic should consider joining hands because there is certainly merit on both ends.
It's dumb to think that it's one way or the other. It's akin to democrat vs republican; and it's ridiculous.
Divide and conquer yet again......
