An excellent text about a crucial point that should be more widely understood: censorship has *always* been justified by the greater good, but it *never* was.

The Peril of Politicizing Science, by Anna I. Krylov

The icing on the cake is that this "Social Justice" nonsense harms actual social justice concerns with the impacts of scientific development, dissemination and policy. It distracts and draws energy from real issues, and stigmatizes leftist struggles : P

Similarities with what we're witnessing in politics are, unfortunately, not a mere coincidence.

@aleabdo Precisely. This is what the ACLU used to understand when they protected the rights of Nazis. It was not about protecting Nazis, it was about protecting the *rights*. Those that would suffer the most from the erosion of such rights are marginalized groups.

This is *not* rocket science.
