This is a bizarre story, to me, right out of the mid-90s. I didn’t know that NASA could grant an “exclusive license” for things that other people came up with, and I didn’t know that KST was still attempting to do tow launch.
When he’s right, he’s right: Yes, the Left is just as, if not more anti-science as “the right.”
Of course, the biggest way in which it is anti-science is in its denial of human nature, and belief in the blank slate.
I saw a pre-screening of the new film this morning, and talked briefly to Pascal and Jean-Christophe. Then we ran errands the rest of the day. I’ll have a review up somewhere this week. It’s a great documentary.
I’m sure it hopes so. It’s always hated the very idea of it.

Check out this amusing bit of projection:
“We really see higher education as the first cog in their political machine,” said Kalin Jordan, a co-founder of UnKochMyCampus. “They see themselves as creating the next generation [of libertarian thinkers] and in creating a next generation, they’re really pushing out any other thought on campus. They’re not interested in creating diversity of thoughts.”
Translation: “They’re fighting back against our successful decades-long fight to push out any thoughts on campus that aren’t leftist.”
I have no idea who it is, but the private one is clearly different than the public one. Profoundly ignorant in both cases though, on the issues of the day, and the narcissism comes through in bot cases as well.
Sara Langston has a new paper out. I haven’t read it yet, but it looks interesting (I may not agree with it entirely, but really don’t know).
It’s scary because it’s true: She’s right about his foreign “policy” “positions.”
She’s also right that he’s a con man and a charlatan who took advantage of people who couldn’t afford his scams with regard to Trump U. And no, I’m not going to vote for her under any circumstances.
