[T]he time is overdue for adding the separation of state and science to the by now quite customary separation of state and church. Science is only one of the many instruments people invented to cope with their surroundings. It is not the only one, it is not infallible and it has become too powerful, too pushy, and too dangerous to be left on its own.

Paul Feyerabend, 1993

Against Method

I do not know any country where, in general, less independence of mind and genuine freedom of discussion reign than in America.

What struck me in the United States is the trouble one experiences in disabusing the majority of an idea it has conceived and of detaching it from a man whom it adopts. Writings or discourses can scarcely succeed at this; experience alone overcomes it; sometimes it must be repeated.


Alexis de Tocqueville, 1835

Democracy in America

The AIDS trap

Big Science Threatens Democracy. There is an urgent need for new examples of conducting scientific research.

While trying to dynamite the carapace of techno-babble shielding the AIDS Establishment, I discovered Alexis de Tocqueville 170 years ago had already anticipated the underlying political and sociological bases of AIDS.
