Libertarian Ideology Is the Natural Enemy of Science by David Robert Grime.
Whether the issue is climate change, healthcare or gun control, libertarians are on a permanent collision course with evidence.
“Libertarian Ideology is the Natural Enemy of Science,” says The Guardian: Absolute Codswallop by Ronald Bailey.
Guardian columnist David Robert Grimes singles out advocates of property rights and free markets as a special menace to society largely because their supposedly greed blinds them to the scientific truths about climate change, gun control, and pharmaceutical research and development so evident to objective and fair-minded leftwingers. Of course, Grimes inconveniently overlooks the copious research that finds that left-wingers resort to motivated cognition too when it comes to evaluating distasteful scientific data. GMOs? Nuclear power? Fracking?
