In a reminder that science and smart can be as far removed as Kosher and ham, an editorial in the Scientific American reminds you of what it takes to get people dedicated to studying science for the betterment of humanity to turn their skills to nuclear weapons and gas chambers instead.
It's a lot of leftwing bilge and idiocy, racism and ethnic cleansing. Star Wars is problematic because
Jew White people evil! Oh, and violence when not glorying the Leftist state, as the riots, destruction and death of the BLM protests did. Of course Vader was also an evil dig at disabled people? That's a new one.
But the Left is ever interested in finding new ways to prove everyone else was wretched and evil. I'm sure there could be hundreds of clues and triggers proving just how Star Wars makes Himmler seem like a saint. That's the modern Left. No inquisitor, witch hunter or lynch mob ever came close to the Taliban like self righteous hatred and destruction of - everything and everyone that the Left opposes.
But again, these are scientists. The ones who will be building the computers, medical advances and technology of tomorrow. And given what I'm seeing, the ones who will happily set those aside when the call comes to invent new STEM driven solutions to deal with the new undesirables.
Remember, we celebrate those scientists, intellectuals, artists, film makers, poets, ministers, doctors, and educators who fled Nazi Germany or stayed to fight the great fight. And well we should. But never forget the majority in those professions and others remained in Germany and turned their professions, arts, skills and industry to the service of the Nazi regime. Never, ever forget that.

And given how well stuff works nowadays, I wouldn't panic too much. The one upside to ideology overtaking competence is that it grows harder for the wheels of the totalitarians machine to grind.
There is that. But what a payoff it is as the machine begins to break down and those wheels begin to come off.Delete
Luke was disabled as well, after his second film. Vader wasn't the only disabled character.ReplyDelete
Where bigotry and prejudice is - and this is based upon the racist appraisal of Caucasians that is almost endorsed and promoted today - they aren't going to sweat facts and details.Delete
