The Death Of Science And ‘Scientific American’
The great legacy publication, Scientific American, is dead. It’s still in print, but it is no longer either scientific or American.
In an article described by a friend as, “a hailstorm of impenetrable academic verbiage, dictated by a Ph.D. trying to out-preen the race and climate-change virtue signalers,” the publication has stepped through the woke looking-glass and emerged as self-parody.
How else can one explain “Climate Anxiety Is an Overwhelmingly White Phenomenon”?
The nonsensical article’s apparent points are that “climate anxiety [is] just code for white people wishing to hold onto their way of life or get ‘back to normal,’ to the comforts of their privilege,” and “Climate anxiety can operate like white fragility, sucking up all the oxygen in the room and devoting resources toward appeasing the dominant group.”
It’s easy to write this off as the ravings of the Woke lunatic fringe, but to paraphrase Hannibal Lecter, the pathology on display here is a thousand times more savage and more terrifying, for it is classic Marshall McLuhan insidiously at play in the service of cultural Marxism:
The medium is the message because it is the medium that shapes and controls the scale and form of human association and action. The content or uses of such media are as diverse as they are ineffectual in shaping the form of human association. Indeed, it is only too typical that the “content” of any medium blinds us to the character of the medium.
Alas, the medium is indeed the message, and the message is grim for both science and America. The content isn’t the problem nearly as much as where it has been published.
This is Scientific American, a publication of such heft and import that it has been the poster child, for 175 years, for shaping and controlling the scale and form of human association and action in the realm of objective reality and inquiry.
Science is foundational to human existence. It explains who we are and our place in the universe. It adheres to the strictest of laws: physics, mathematics, chemistry.
All are disciplines that have but one specific answer to every question. There is right and there is wrong. Such things, however, cannot be permitted to exist in a Marxist society.
Scientific American is the publication that offered accessibly, and often essential, insight into fundamental elements of science and its impact on society.
Peruse the archive back to 1875 and be astonished at what the magazine covered in even the most obscure realms of real science – and why it mattered to human beings.
Gone now. Swept away. The virus of wokism has infiltrated one of the great publications. Here’s how it breaks down.
Readers of this website have been provided actual science by real Americans, demonstrating “climate change” to be a richly-funded, dark money hoax with no basis in science.
Therefore, “climate anxiety” is itself the fruit of the poisonous tree, a derivative fiction inculcated in the minds of those predisposed to fear.
Thus, climate anxiety as a supplanter of racial injustice is a fictional derivative of fiction, a concept rivaled only by Goldman Sachs’ collateralized toxic mortgage obligations.
Think carefully about this. Scientific American – the longest-running scientific publication in the world — now publishes Marxist fairy tales. The medium is indeed terrifying now the message. […]
Scientific American didn’t just step through the looking-glass. It stepped through fifteen of them and emerged from the rear end of a Christopher Nolan film. And it took science with it.
