ny times article link Okay, surprised no one has posted about this yet. It is a science issue on the surface, but I know it will get political fast, so I'm posting it in the political forums to save moderators time. What is this garbage? If science believes something that, for one reason or another, doesn't make you feel good, how is it productive to censor that information? This is clear cut evidence of what I guess is a widely known fact: the Bush administration is uninterested in the truth about things. They are interested in controlling people by tapping into every side of humanity that is irrational. They want people to be ignorant because the more ignorant you are, the easier it is to feed you lies - it's easy to live life by simple and irrational guidelines. Once people take on a close-minded viewpoint, once they invest in that perspective, it takes an awful lot of work and individual thinking to dig their way out. Now Bush has a constituency that has zero interest in what he does and he can make all his corporate buddies lots of cash. I have no problem with people having different perspectives, different attitudes about the meaning of their lives and what they believe it is worth dedicating their lives to. But I am terrified of the idea that the american government is trying to breed people that are afraid of and hate the truth!
