A Menckenian hobgoblin.

New York Prosecutors are Screaming at the Sky. Jonathon Moseley – “Did leftists learn nothing from the adventures of Wile E. Coyote forever trying to catch the Roadrunner but always failing? – It is starting to look as if the endless adrenaline high is the real point.”

Beijing’s useful idiots. Ian Birrell – “Only now is acceptance emerging that the science establishment colluded to dismiss the lab leak hypothesis as a conspiracy theory, assisted by prominent experts with clear conflicts of interest, patsy politicians and a pathetic media that mostly failed to do its job. And yet, at the heart of this scandal lie some of the world’s most influential science journals.”

The New Clerisy. Leighton Akira Woodhouse – “Faith in science is an oxymoron.” – “demand the best proof they can offer. You consider their motivations, their ideological biases and their conflicts of interest. You interrogate their advice, and weigh it against that of their critics. You exercise diligence. You ask questions. You trust in evidence, not in people. You think for yourself. – In our drift toward political tribalism, these are skills we are quickly unlearning. Those who call the shots in this country are happy to have it that way.”

The Left’s Religious Faith In False ‘Science’ Echoes Soviet Corruption. Sumantra Maitra – “The worship of elite expertise is the under-analyzed aspect of this sorry saga. Frank’s article is what happens when someone replaces his religion with a new one but fails to recognize the reality of the switcheroo. – Anyone who studied Soviet history knows how a section of intelligentsia and bureaucracy were groomed to justify even the most ridiculous ideological overdrive.”

“Science is not your child to love, or a deity to be worshipped. It is a tool used to discern and discover the truth of things, all while adopting constant skepticism.

Science is not the legacy media shouting loudest about whatever new fashionable opinion they are told to shout, nor is it faith in arch-bureaucrats like Fauci, who will likely face no repercussion for his incompetence and arrogance. The Soviet-lite intelligentsia and leftist media are already falling in line to support one of their own, and the mediocrities will support whatever next fashionable cause the sophisticates declare to be worthy.

The More Alarmists Talk, The More We Know Global Warming Is A Scam. I & I Editorial Board – “A number pulled out of the ether. No (real) science behind it. A benchmark used to do nothing more than frighten the public – a Menckenian hobgoblin.” – “here we are in 2021, the West increasingly captured by a Democrat-media-celebrity cartel that bitterly clings to its science fiction and superstition. We need to wake up before not only is the economy lost but our freedoms, too.”

WCSD: 83% of comments opposed social justice curriculum. Stanton Tang – “the District received 1,436 comments about the proposed curriculum; 57% from WCSD parents, 7% from WCSD staff and 36% from the community. – Of the responses, 83.7% were in opposition and 16.3% expressed support for the plan.”
