Quote:

First published in 1869, Nature bills itself as "the world's leading multidisciplinary science journal." It is certainly among the most read, cited, and prestigious academic journals, which makes its apparent fall to the lows of "woke" gatekeeping and outright advocacy demanding that science be compatible with an ideologically fashionable worldview all the more distressing.

"Science has for too long been complicit in perpetuating structural inequalities and discrimination in society," the recent issue of Nature Human Behavior continues. Nature's editors have now made "woke" identity politics an essential element of editorial policy, explicitly stating that they will reject, retract, and repudiate any research that "promotes privileged, exclusionary perspectives." This description can be made to fit anything that left-wing institutions might consider offensive, helpful to their political adversaries, or otherwise inconvenient to their worldview regardless of its truth. As social psychologist Bo Winegard points out in Quillette, "These new guidelines have been designed to reject any article deemed to pose a threat to disadvantaged groups, irrespective of whether or not its central claims are true, or at least well-supported."

This isn't the first time the Left has openly attempted to ban scientific thought.

"Science was not spared from this strict ideological control," Anna Krylov, a professor of chemistry at the University of Southern California, noted in a letter to the Journal of Physical Chemistry that described scientists' experience in the Soviet Union. "Entire disciplines were declared ideologically impure, reactionary, and hostile to the cause of working-class dominance and the World Revolution. Notable examples of 'bourgeois pseudo-science' included genetics and cybernetics. Quantum mechanics and general relativity were also criticized for insufficient alignment with dialectic materialism." In Krylov's view, the Left is politicizing science, even "hard science" fields such as chemistry, to pursue an agenda based on what feels good rather than what's true, fundamentally undermining scientific knowledge. She fears this could potentially trigger a slide toward a pseudoscientific dark age akin to the quasi-religious Lysenkoism once promoted by the Soviet Union, from which Russian biology has yet to fully recover:

The Cold War is a distant memory and the country shown on my birth certificate and school and university diplomas, the USSR, is no longer on the map. . . . But I find myself experiencing its legacy some thousands of miles to the west, as if I am living in an Orwellian twilight zone. I witness ever-increasing attempts to subject science and education to ideological control and censorship. Just as in Soviet times, the censorship is being justified by the greater good. Whereas in 1950, the greater good was advancing the World Revolution (in the USSR; in the USA the greater good meant fighting Communism), in 2021 the greater good is 'Social Justice' (the capitalization is important: 'Social Justice' is a specific ideology, with goals that have little in common with what lower-case "social justice" means in plain English). As in the USSR, the censorship is enthusiastically imposed also from the bottom, by members of the scientific community, whose motives vary from nave idealism to cynical power-grabbing.

My brief exposure to the history of eugenics in America led to the realization that "science" justified the movement at all the "elite" universities here in the US and even in Europe. It was a worldwide scourge on humanity that was very fashionable and included converts in critical political positions. In retrospect, it's astonishing to think such an evil ideology could become so fashionable. Ultimately, the Christian worldview overcame that ideology.

I see "Social Justice" as the new eugenics, an overtly racist ideology marketed as "anti-racist". With the decline in acceptance of a Christian worldview, I wonder if our society will be capable of withstanding the assault. The suppression of truth in support of an ideological narrative is a hallmark of the rise of many evil regimes. We need to prepare ourselves for another ugly struggle to overcome this new racist ideology.

Add that to CRT and all the "equity" BS that the lefties say are "conspiracy theories."

They know full well what they are doing and given the opportunity they'll indoctrinate an entire generation with their BS and lies.

The entire agenda of the communist Left is 100% anti-science. As well as anti free speech, which is a closely related subject...because without freedom of speech (and debate and inquiry), there can be no investigation and discussion which is needed to discover the truth on any matter.

The basic definition of "science" is determining what is true. And as is becoming increasingly obvious, the communist Left is at war with the truth. The entire agenda of the Marxist Left is ideologically founded in lies. That's not hyperbole. It's the reality. These people are intentionally pushing lies - in order to push a larger Satanic agenda to completely invert reality and destroy the order and creation that God intended.

Take the theory of evolution (and Big Bang) as a prime examples. This preposterous theory is lauded and pushed by the Left as a "pillar" of what they call "science". But it's not true science at all. It's absolutely ridiculous on it's face, and is not based in true observation or evidence. It is only backed by hoaxes and frauds (eg, faked "missing link" ape-human fossils), and more pure speculation and theory that has no basis in observation or reality. The evolutionists know that they are lying. It's all part of an agenda to deny God's existence, and promote an atheistic agenda.

Do you recall, by the way, what Marx said about religion? -- ie, "the opiate of the masses". And in the Soviet Union, communist China, and other nations where communism has taken over, they outlaw (or at least harshly attack) belief in God and establish an atheistic, secular society. And then Leftists are fanatical about pushing the theory of evolution nonsense, to deny God's existence. Connect the dots. The fundamental ideological foundation of the Marxist Left is their denial of God's existence, and then their fanatical obsession to promote everything He hates (eg, abortion, transgenders, Sodomy, sexual promiscuity, etc).

And these people now deny well-founded biological science, and deny that there are only two genders. And, of course, they deny that unborn children are "human beings" in order to justify their agenda to murder unborn children. You expect us to trust the Marxist Left's so-called "science", when these people blatantly lie about how many genders there are and deny that unborn children are human beings?

Go right down the list of everything being pushed by the communist Left: theory of evolution, transgender insanity and the 70+ genders, the "climate change" hoax. These are all lies, to push their anti-human, Satanic, anti-Christian, God-hating communist agenda.

The great conflict that is going on in this world is a battle between God and Satan...which manifests as a war by Satan seeking to destroy humanity, because he hates that we were created in God's image. Marxism (aka "woke progressivism") and other destructive false ideologies are Satanic in origin. These people are pawns of Satan, whether they know it or not.

"Climate change" is not an agenda being pushed by Marxists who "love you" and are trying to "save humanity" from a 1 degree temperature rise. No. It's a false pretext being used as the excuse to destroy and shut down cheap and abundant energy (and now shut down 30%+ of farming...for starters), and on top of that tax humans to death...all designed to lower human population and financially strangle and enslave humanity.
