    I realize that this is a waste of time (and off subject) but this 'might' be of interest to L Bird as it tells the story of the divergence between science and the bourgeoisie. More often than not these days science confronts bourgeois ideology rather than supports it: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3490543/

    Wez, there are many, many philosophers and physicists who have criticised 'science'. The problem for 'materialists', is that these criticisms are aimed squarely at this bourgeois materialism. That is, the form of 'science' that these criticisms embody is derided as 'idealism' by the materialists.We never get to discussing these conflicting ideologies of 'science', simply because 'materialists' claim not to have an 'ideology', but that they are simply reflecting 'Reality', a reflection that does not require pre-existing ideas.This 'materialism' is opposed to Marx, who quite clearly argued for the method of 'theory and practice'. Thus, discussions about 'theory' and its implementation within 'practice' are central to any 'science' which is useful to the whole of humanity.The 'materialists' oppose Marx, by arguing for the bourgeois conservative method of 'practice and theory', within which 'blindly doing stuff' supposedly produces 'ideas'.If you want to discuss 'science', Wez, all well and good. But tell me your ideology of science, if it's not Marx's 'theory and practice', and a 'democratic  socialist' method.As I've said, if you're a 'materialist', you're espousing an ideology that pre-dates Marx, and which Marx replaced with 'theory and practice'.'Science' is a socio-historical human activity, which changes over time and with mode of production. It's not a 'universal, asocial, ahistorical method'. And it embodies 'power' relationships. Unless we democratically control our 'science', it will be controlled by an elite.If you're happy with elite control of 'science', how do you reconcile this with democratic socialism? 'Materialism' cannot reconcile its 'elite science' done by 'Specialists', with the necessity within democratic socialism for the 'Generalists' to be in political control.

    No..this is a hate-group…you truly are haters. At least, most of you, minus alan and Steve San fran., the rest of you are closer to fascism and stalinism, you are a hate-group and hate differences. You see no value in different points of views. Everyone must conform to your myopic ideology. This is the literal definition of a hate-group, hence, why there are no women on here. I want no part of this any longer, this all male hate-group

The paper did print a retraction, months later.     Bijiou, hiding behind a moniker, like a frightened little boy.   

    I am so glad the paper printed a retraction, I couldn't believe that what the article implies would actually apply to you, i.e. that you are a attention seeking self publicist of very little talent. You would never have got that impression from the well thought out contributions you have made to this site. Funnily enough I have looked through the archive and cannot find the retraction you mentioned, be a sweetheart and post a link for me, I'm also surprised that they left the original article on line, you should have a word with them and get them to take the "slanderous(sic) article" off their site. If it is still up there people might get the impression that it is true, heaven forbid.p.s I'm still hoping you are going to explain how tariffs fit into your concept that prices can be set without reference to value.Anyway must sign off, pass on my regards to Alan, Wayne, Merill, Jay, Marie and of course not forgetting Little Jimmy, and keeping those "Crazy Horses" smoking up the sky.

    It all depends on whose standards and criteria one is judging by, Robbo203.  You and SPGB certainly do not have a monopoly on what actually constitutes twaddle and what actually constitutes verity. No matter what you think ROBBO203, the post-modernists were right on at least one count. There is no longer a universal criteria by which to judge once and for all. And if you believe otherwise, and I think you do, Robbo203,  then, most certainly by my limited criteria called: structural-anarchism, you are a throw-back to a bye-gone Enlightenment era.  An ancient time, when people still believed in God and the sanctity of sacred texts.  Hey…I am just speaking from the future, for better or for worst, ole'timer. Anarchism Now! Anarchism Forever!
