All institutions share a few purposes in common. One is to aid the host kleptocracy in protecting itself from incriminating evidence. Thus a church which purports to represent communications with God will instinctively block all evidence of failure (or betrayal) at that role. A fake democracy will keep no records of its failures to listen to the public. A school will lose all evidence, bury all testimony, that skills, ideas, information, facts are edited there. The FBI lab continues to receive funding, proof that it’s not a lab but a front for falsification lost.
Last evening my beloved and I watched a DVD of the John LeCarré story The Constant Gardener: Britain, the UN, big Pharm tag team the public to pretend that a killer drug is safe by ramming fake results up the public: as mass graves in Africa go unreported. Such people can’t have science, such people don’t deserve science, such people have no right to be surprised that there is no science.
“Unreported”: there’s a theme: and underreported. The US kills 4,000,000 in Vietnam over a couple of decakes while admitting that a few got killed, by accident, of course, despite our best intentions. Thirty years later 1,000,000 are admitted to: as though we’d admitted it all along! No we didn’t; we wouldn’t have admitted to 100,000: billions in bombs dropped, but no casualties.
