We have reached a dangerous state of scientific tyranny. People are ridiculed and even vilified for questioning the prevailing narratives about the nature of our world, but this counters the true meaning of science. At its core, science is about questioning what we think we know.
“A central lesson of science is that to understand complex issues (or even simple ones), we must try to free our minds of dogma and to guarantee the freedom to publish, to contradict, and to experiment. Arguments from authority are unacceptable.”
Today, many scientific assumptions have transformed into scientific dogmas. In almost every field of science, from the study of consciousness, to modern day medicine, to food and drugs, controversy and corruption exist. As many whistleblowers have revealed, big corporations have a monopoly on science and control what gets published and enters the public domain.
Dr. Diane Harper, for example, one of a mere handful of experts on the human papillomavirus (HPV) and one of the leading researchers in biomedical science, has pointed to this fact a number of times, specifically with regards to Gardasil, the HPV vaccine. She has spent her life studying vaccines; she was the principle investigator of both HPV vaccines — Gardasil manufactured by Merck, and Cervarix manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline. In multiple interviews she’s stated how the vaccine was approved and fast-tracked before all of the science had been completed.
You can check out this FDA document to verify that for yourself, as it’s no secret. Here’s another interesting publication you can check out published in the Journal of Medical Ethics about its fast-tracking. We’ve also written about Gardasil/HPV extensively, so you can find out more here.
Investigations have also discovered that the FDA manipulates science press, and multiple whistleblowers have brought this to light. Take Dr. Richard Horton, the Editor in Chief of one of the largest peer-reviewed medical journals in the world. He says, “The case against science is straightforward: much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue.” (source)
It can be truly overwhelming to see just how many of these scientists, who have such distinguished positions and backgrounds, are making statements like these. There are countless examples to choose from.
As with medical science, climate science is fraught with corruption. Questioning climate science is just as scary for some people as questioning vaccine science. This is because the mainstream ridicules people who ask questions. They do this through clever marketing, constantly pushing the idea that vaccines save lives and carry no risks, which entirely contradicts the science that continues to emerge showing otherwise.
When there are so many scientists with distinguished backgrounds, who come directly from the fields in question, making statements that are completely ridiculed by mainstream media, we should be taking notice. Why aren’t any of these scientists given a voice in corporate media? And why does corporate media make people feel stupid and even scared to look into or even contemplate what they have to say?
In the interview below, Richard Lindzen mentions the monopolization of science, arguing that science has become a tool to push forth political, economic, and financial agendas.
Lindzen is one of the world’s top experts in the field and lead author of “Physical Climate Processes and Feedbacks,” Chapter 7 of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s Third Assessment Report on climate change. He is a dynamical meteorologist with interests in the broad topics of climate, planetary waves, monsoon meteorology, planetary atmospheres, and hydrodynamic instability. His research involves studies of the role of the tropics in mid-latitude weather and global heat transport, the moisture budget and its role in global change, the origins of ice ages, seasonal effects in atmospheric transport, stratospheric waves, and the observational determination of climate sensitivity. He has made major contributions to the development of the current theory for the Hadley Circulation, and pioneered the study of how ozone photochemistry, radiative transfer, and dynamics interact with each other. He is also the Emeritus Sloan Professor of Meteorology at Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
In many of his lectures, he has pointed out how policymakers were heavily involved with the IPCC and their publications.

It’s great how he mentions Eisenhower’s warning, which was referring to the military industrial complex and the potential for the rise of misplaced power, which unfortunately is our reality today. JFK also spoke about this hidden hand:
It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations.
Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried, not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, no secret is revealed. (source)
Here is a full lecture given by Lindzen in 2009 that explores this issue further.
He’s Not the Only One
The most intriguing part about this whole thing is the fact that he’s not the only one saying this. Although mainstream media continues to push the narrative that the majority of scientists in the world agree on our impact on climate change, there are hundreds around the world who don’t, and are quite firm in their belief. One of them is Lindzen.
We need to have open discussions without judgement, fear, and hysteria. Clearly, there are some extremely intelligent people out there who do not agree with the popular narrative.
A few politicians have also been making this argument. One example is the Australian Prime Minister’s chief business adviser, who believes that climate change is a “ruse” led by the United Nations to create a New World Order. He claims that the UN is using false models which show sustained temperature increases in order to impose authoritarian rules. You can read more about that here.
That being said, it’s important to recognize that this “politicization of science” has also been used to brainwash scientists. A classic example comes in the form of a federal lawsuit that was initiated by Steven Druker, who is the Director of the Alliance For Bio-Integrity. The lawsuit forced the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to divulge its files on genetically engineered foods. Druker exposed how the agency covered up the warnings of its own scientists about the risks, lied about the facts, and then ushered these foods onto the market, in violation of federal law. As a result of this approval, a number of scientists have now been brainwashed into believing that the “science is solid”
You can read more about that and look into his book Altered Genes, Twisted Truth: How the Venture to Genetically Engineer Our Food Has Subverted Science, Corrupted Government, and Systematically Deceived the Public for more information.
The most important point here is that we must not shut out these viewpoints. We need to have open discussions, where all of the information on each side is presented, without corporate, political, or social interests getting involved. We cannot continue to shun questioning, especially in the face of scientific dogma.
Yes, we are destroying our environment and polluting our world, and there is a great need to implement clean green energy technologies.
Our organization (CE) is involved in clean green energy initiatives and doing our best to help push them forward. Check out www.nce.energy.
What we need is a body or an organization that is more concerned with these issues than the furtherance of their own political/economic agendas.
