A couple of words, and then I'll shut up. Everyone has their political
slant on things, some passionately held. This List is probably not the
place for expressing that slant. If I gave an unfossilized caprolite
about the politics of the subject, I'd probably consult alt.disney.sucks
or whatever the hate group of the moment happens to be. As it happens, I
My preferences are, perhaps justly, of little moment to you I'm sure.
But, more universally, it is *seriously* bad medicine to mix science and
politics, for the same reason its bad medicine to mix politics and
religion. Both are perverted in the process. Remeber Lysenko? Galileo?
Social Darwinism? How long before some fellow-traveller of yours
decides it would be OK to fudge on an environmental study in order to
keep a Disney facility from expanding? After all, its in a good cause,
Enough said. No one can keep a perfect firewall between their
enthusiasms, and I'd be the first to admit that I've made the same sorts
of remarks myself, and in the recent past at that. However, a little
restraint can at least keep the damage within bounds.
