Falsifying Data to Smear Vegetarians

This is what you get when Big Science is in bed with Big Academia and Big Government -

Committee: Dutch Faked Data for Years

[bostonglobe.com]

"One of Stapel’s most recent studies gaining notoriety in August 2011 which actually raised the eyebrows of some of his fellow Dutch colleagues was one that concluded “meat eaters are more selfish and less social than vegetarians.”"

Big Science, Big Government

[www.forbes.com]

"Federal domination of science funding has two quite intended consequences: both individual scientists and major universities have become wards of Washington. For decades, academic sociologists have noted that almost all faculty party affiliations are with the Democrats. This is no conspiracy–it is merely like-minded individuals hiring other like minds and voting their best interest. Political economists would shrug at this example of “Public Choice” at work.

The Big Government bias of academic science goes back to Franklin Roosevelt, who knew that the Manhattan Project was going to be an explosive success. Before he died (and before the first ignition in New Mexico), he wrote a letter to Vannevar Bush, director of the wartime Office of Scientific Research and Development, which oversaw building of the atomic bombs. In it he asked Bush to propose a mechanism that would employ, in the postwar years, armies of scientists in federally funded laboratories or university research projects.

Bush’s answer (to President Truman), called “Science, The Endless Frontier”, laid out the map for the creation of the National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health, and various and sundry military research facilities. Bush proposed, and Congress eventually disposed, with the federalization of science."

Government, being the holder of the greatest capital[taxes] that may be disbursed to research, must do so for progress in society to occur. Otherwise, research gets funded only by private holders of capital that have vested interests in specific research outcomes. You know, like Big Petroleum funding climate change research. The result is a perversion of science.

Regarding the Dutch "study", ah, Straw Man fallacy--nice one! It is a mistake to attribute this particular perversion of science to government; rather it was the researcher's own bias that is to blame. It wouldn't matter who was funding him, as long as these outcomes were what they wanted.
