What is this war on science?

Yuval Levin in the New Atlantis

But if this notion of a “war on science” tells us little about the right, it does tell us something important about the American left and its self-understanding. That liberals take attacks against their own political preferences to be attacks against science helps us see the degree to which they identify themselves—their ideals, their means, their ends, their cause, and their culture—with the modern scientific enterprise.

In other words, we struggle with dissonance about how we understand ourselves and the world in which we live.
