Science as social control

...there is operating within the disciplines of medicine, public health, social science, and now economics, a research framework that, if successful, would locate the causes of negative human outcomes internally. At fault will be genes and not circumstances. It is an officially sanctioned and scientific version of “blame the victim”.

Three major strands of evidence support this thesis...

Why is the federal government spending millions of dollars on non-scientific research on genetics?

over the last fifteen years close to half the budget of the NIH has gone to genetic analysis of human populations. That is likely in excess of $100 billion dollars in the US alone.

Read the entire review of a recent Science article and how it was framed to produce results not really found in the research it supposedly reports on Truthout.
