01) Correcting Misinformation is Not Censorship
“Bizarrely, libertarians seem to think that academic rigor amounts to censorship.
Petition to end social justice in universities: https://www.change.org/p/universities-suspend-social-justice-in-universities“
Even though I’m not big on signing petitions, there are some good points here…and a stumbling point.
What is wrong with the state dictating acceptable and unacceptable forms of education?
…Being someone who has witnessed gross interference of the government, which literally condemned the scientific process when applied to CSA [Child Sexual Abuse] research…I can tell you that my personal faith in the integrity of the government, is entirely devastated.
Governments in the United States have repeatedly exposed themselves as being hostile towards objective facts, surrounding the [considerably broad spanning] topic of CSA…Unless those objective facts support a specific social narrative, then they don’t want to hear anything about it.
Do educate yourself on what happened with A Meta-Analytic Examination of Assumed Properties of Child Sexual Abuse Using College Samples, from 1998.
It wasn’t just the dog and pony show spectacle, of congress holding a vote [supported by all but one…who merely abstained from voting] to condemn this research…they also severely cut the federal funding, to the university which allowed this research to happen…Which has had very far reaching effects, on handicapping objective research on CSA, childhood sexuality, pedophiles, hebephiles, ephebophiles…all human sexuality, existing within certain parameters.
When it comes to social engineering and maintaining status quo…the U.S. government is known to get extremely vicious and dirty…This is an established fact, on display, out in the open…It is no longer up for debate.
…So, while I would not think the government is likely to be bad on all issues and subjects of study…I do know that it is a very bad steward of information, and the development of cognitive skills, where the issue begins to challenge widely held cultural beliefs, which are pushed by powerful, very well funded and aggressive groups with a social agenda.
…This is the point where a lot of good science dies.
The point is…the U.S. federal government has grossly interfered with the scientific method being used, where it comes to anything characterized as CSA.
There is nothing at all wrong with the scientific method…But when this happens, it’s an integrity issue of the government…and it shows why the government is not welcome, here.
Beyond that caveat…I agree with the message of this video.
You know what just dawned on me?…
…They’ve been using Social Justice Warrior tactics against “unwanted sexuality” [and the groups involved], all along…
…It’s just that we are now, finally seeing it fan out into many other, more mainstream areas of social life…and a lot more people are being bothered and effected by it…and they don’t like it, when imposed upon themselves…
…They finally see it as bankrupt of integrity…just as we’ve seen and known it, all along.
