    Scientist Wants To Bring Star Trek Values to Congress

    https://www.wired.com/2017/12/geeks-guide-jess-phoenix/
    Phoenix is one of a growing number of scientists who are running for public office, spurred on by the group 314 Action, which helps teach scientists how to organize a political campaign. There’s a growing recognition among them that too many elected officials are ignorant of basic science, and that the only solution is for scientists to get in there and do a better job.

    “The science candidates are going to be in favor of things that are scientifically proven to work,” Phoenix says. “That’s the one thing that unites all of us.”
    I wish they'd study economics instead.
    * Enforce Border Security – America should be guarding her own borders and enforcing her own laws instead of policing the world and implementing UN mandates.

    * No Amnesty - The Obama Administration’s endorsement of so-called “Comprehensive Immigration Reform,” granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, will only encourage more law-breaking.

    * Abolish the Welfare State – Taxpayers cannot continue to pay the high costs to sustain this powerful incentive for illegal immigration. As Milton Friedman famously said, you can’t have open borders and a welfare state.

    * End Birthright Citizenship – As long as illegal immigrants know their children born here will be granted U.S. citizenship, we’ll never be able to control our immigration problem.

    Not the way it is currently taught.

    There’s a growing recognition among [scientists] that too many elected officials are ignorant of basic science, and that the only solution is for scientists to get in there and do a better job.

    “The science candidates are going to be in favor of things that are scientifically proven to work,” Phoenix says. “That’s the one thing that unites all of us.”
    Well, science (properly understood) is value-free and neither informs nor is informed by moral principles - so I guess scientists should feel right at home in the halls of power ... (and this Phoenix fella already seems to have the requisite smug and self-righteous certainty that he knows "what's best for everyone" down cold ...)

    What could possibly go wrong?

    There’s a growing recognition among them that too many elected officials are ignorant of basic science,
    True, but that isn't the problem at all.

    and that the only solution is for scientists to get in there and do a better job.
    ...depending on what constitutes "better".

    “The science candidates are going to be in favor of things that are scientifically proven to work,”
    What could possibly go wrong?

    Phoenix says. “That’s the one thing that unites all of us.”
    If he believes this, then he's not only a fool, but dangerous in the deal. Putting "science" up as the new religion... what could possibly go wrong?

    Science? Sure, lets talk about Genetics and their link to IQ, shall we? No? I wonder why not?
