Elon Musk Allows Scientific Liberty

America has always been the land of liberty, until the totalitarian mindset raised its head in recent times, doubtless as a judgment for America’s wickedness. But there is still more liberty in America than in other nations. It is encouraging to see every glimmer of it in these strange times. Elon Musk purchased Twitter to make it a forum for free speech, and he is still pursuing that agenda in spite of unreasonable, vicious, widespread slander. On Dec. 29, he tweeted, “New Twitter policy is to follow the science, which necessarily includes reasoned questioning of the science.” He also said, “Anyone who says that questioning them is questioning science itself cannot be regarded as a scientist.” He is doubtless referring to the totalitarian policy of Dr. Anthony Fauci and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control during the Covid crisis, among other things. Eric Weinstein, managing director of Thiel Capital, commented, “This. Changes. Everything. If true. Is that a 100% commitment to biologists that they can stop *lying* about biological sex, healthy reproductive development, ‘herd immunity’, genetic differences between geographically separated populations, horse paste, Wuhan Inst. GoF, etc.?” Joshua Stevens, who works for NASA, tweeted, “This is fair and reasonable. And if any scientist tells you otherwise, never let them wax poetic about curiosity and wonder ever again.”
