Junk Philopsophy

The Amazing Randi draws attention to this on Bad Science:

Deconstructing the evidence-based discourse in health sciences: truth, power and fascism.”

Randi introduces it by saying “Under the presumptuous heading of “Scholarly Article,” four Canadian “scientists” – all PhDs or PhD candidates – have presented the world with an amazingly naïve and ludicrous paper…”

I doubt very much that they are scientists. Superannuated mummers in what was once the humanities more like it.

 A few quotes:

we assert that the evidence-based movement in health sciences constitutes a good example of microfascism at play in the contemporary scientific arena.

Objective -The philosophical work of Deleuze and Guattari proves to be useful in showing how health sciences are colonised (territorialised) by an all-encompassing scientific research paradigm – that of post-positivism – but showing the process by which a dominant ideology comes to exclude alternative forms of knowledge, therefore acting as a fascist structure.


The Cochrane Group, among others, has created a hierarchy that has been endorsed by many academic institutions, and that serves to (re)produce the exclusion of certain forms of research

it is the ugliest expression of life in the 20th century.  Although it is associated with specific political systems, this fascism of the masses, as was practiced by Hitler and Mussolini, has today been replaced by a system of microfascisms – polymorphous intolerances that are revealed in more subtle ways….


Whatever the Cockrane Group is supposed to be, it’s namesake fought on the side of those who would have reduced Spain to another communist hell hole, against Franco. There is a photo of the commie thug, called Archie Cochrane.

According to those Canadian retarded Phuds, science is a facist plot. The West is riddled with ‘mini fascisms’. I presume they equate fascism with free markets and capital.

Science, apparently, is a ‘construct’ imposed by ruthless oppressors. It would never occur to the dummy sucking infantile delinquents that Soviets and the Nazis elevated voodoo over science and they show it in their strange reference to Hitler and Mussolini.

They definietely don’t have a clue as to history. Whoever let the bums loose on science and philopsphy should be disimissed as a charlatan. Mind, in these days of psycho-socio babble and `man causes global Varming’, I suppose the four Phuds would be regarded as Professorial tyros. Just the sort of bums someone such as Steve Bracks would consult. Erk, and also Ted the Wimp Ballieu.
