This is the first part of a multipart series on the woes of modern science.
Back in the mid seventies was when I started to notice that science was up for grabs to the highest bidder. Big Tobacco was the upstanding corporate
citizen who was buying scientists to come up with some whorish ‘proof’ that smoking was, if not ‘good for ya’ would certainly not harm anyone.
The studies came thick and fast and the good guys were on the back foot. The good guys took almost a decade to eventually catch up and then overtake
Big Tobacco’s strangle hold. Then Big Tobacco went into politics and is still going strong on that front.
Now it seems that no area of science is safe from whoredom. Global warming …. Oops, sorry guys, Global cooling, Oops, sorry guys, Climate change!
Yea, climate change is for sale. So many scientists participating in whorish behavior all for the almighty proverbial thirty pieces of silver.
Big Pharma pays huge money for scientists to come up with some very questionable but amazingly profitable drugs to foist onto the public.
Oh, there are so many examples. When you include multinational corporations efforts in Politics you even get to the stage where honest scientists are
being either muzzled by Governments, Canada springs to mind, or ridiculed for decent work. Even the peer review process is simply a group of whores
commenting on one of their own.
I have lost all faith in science and that for me is epically sad. We have never really been able to trust our Governments. Big business has always
looked at profits only and the last bastion, Science, has fallen.
Part two will look at the anonymous scientist.
