State Science: Can It Be Trusted?
The Day Science Died
by Jeff Berwick and Derek Donohue
Last week (in the blog post, Einstein, the Electric Universe and Expatriation) I made mention that after a day of Googling and YouTubing I had come across the concept of the Electric Universe. In that post, I mentioned that I failed Physics in Grade 10… no big surprise, though. I never went to child prison. I realized what it was at an early age.
However, as a generally curious person who likes to think about how the world and the universe works, I never caught on to a lot of the cosmology of today. As I mentioned before, it didn’t seem to make a lot of sense to me. That was why, when I found the video on the electric universe, and it made a lot more sense than what I knew about cosmology, I quickly picked up to it.
The exact same process basically happened to me with economics. I remember thinking that most of what I heard from so-called authorities like central banks and governments didn’t make much sense. So, I ignored it. Until, one day, I came across Austrian economics and in a very short period of time, everything made perfect sense.
So, it came as a very big surprise to me that of all the articles I have written, the article about the Electric Universe had the most direct feedback of any of them. My email box was nearly full. There were a variety of emails including some who wanted to point out that Robin Hood was actually a libertarian/anarchist figure who “stole” the money back from the government of the time (the King) to give to the people. I admitted that that may very well have been the original point of Robin Hood, but Hollywood has unfortunately turned it into a socialist indoctrination system.
