Progressives have officially killed science for their own political purposes

Scientists now champion censorship and cancel culture, scientific publications are reduced to political polemics with no scientific value while claiming their unique expertise is relevant anywhere they see fit.  Science died in 2020.  Now, they want to bury it so deep it might  never be found again.

The NYC subway shooter, the media, and the strange failure of content moderation
