How Capitalism Corrupts Science

By Leo Gura - July 21, 2018

A very interesting discussion about the dirty realities of how science works:

Over the next 50 years, I foresee science becoming more and more biased by capitalistic forces, skewing our overall worldview to one which favors the corporate collective ego.

The materialist metaphysics that’s prevalent in science doesn’t just exist because it’s reasonable, but because a mystical worldview is fundamentally threatening to business as usual ($$$). The materialist metaphysics helps business earn lots of money, and business re-invests this money back into more materialistic forms of research, creating a vicious circle of materialism, blind to higher consciousness truths.

So on the surface those people who trust in science (including the scientists themselves) end up thinking that materialism is getting more and more validated when in fact that’s only happening because non-materialistic findings are being ignored because they don’t feed the capitalist agenda. To put it simply, truth is bad for business.

Almost everyone knows that religion gets corrupted by ego because that’s old news. What’s new news is that science gets corrupted by ego in just the same way. The problem with atheists railing against religion is that it makes them blind to parallel dynamics occurring within science. The devil (ego) doesn’t care whether your favorite ideology is religion or science. He will find a way to delude you with it all the same.

Always be skeptical when you hear an ego quoting scientific research as if it were objective fact. People like Sam Harris, Richard Dawkins, Jordan Peterson come to mind here. People like that love to weaponize science to advance their own agendas.

P.S. Don’t make the mistake that I am an enemy of science. Just the opposite. Every time I speak against science it’s because I want science to be pure and unbiased. I speak against its corruptions and lack of self-awareness in the same way that Martin Luther spoke against the Catholic Church. But as always, the problem with calling out corruption inside any institution is that one gets seen as an enemy of that institution. Every institution has a collective ego which stubbornly defends itself — warts, corruption, and all.
