In 1995, 35 percent of witnesses were federal employees; of the remaining “public” witnesses, one of every three was a government grant recipient.

Pro-government extremist Nicholas Kristof, a writer for the New York Times, recently repeated claims that the great sculptors of Easter Island were wiped out due to manmade environmental destruction.

South Australians vote to oust climate-change apocalypticists

Government claims about climate change seem to be closely linked to government claims about “campaign finance.” Every claim of campaign finance reformers is untrue. Election outcomes are barely correlated with campaign ad spending; and to the extent there is any correlation, it is likely that political success (or perceived likely success) CAUSES the spending rather …

The world’s government-funded colleges and universities produce and promote a steady stream of pro-government propaganda masquerading as “science” or “the humanities.” Last August Professor Peter Ridd said the unsayable — that we can no longer trust scientific institutions. “The basic problem is that we can no longer trust the scientific organisations like the Australian Institute …
