Dr. Anthony Fauci is now in full defensive mode as critics are responding to the trove of emails recently secured by a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request. It is a desperate attempt to salvage his public reputation and trust.
Chances are he will never see either again in his lifetime.
On a 60 Minutes interview with Chuck Todd on Wednesday (6/9/21) he stated,
“It’s very dangerous, Chuck, because a lot of what you’re seeing as attacks on me, quite frankly, are attacks on science (he means scientism). Because all of the things that I have spoken about consistently from the very beginning have been fundamentally based on science (scientism). Sometimes those things were inconvenient truths for people, and there was pushback against me.
So, if you are trying to get at me as a public health official and scientist (scientismist), you’re really attacking not only Dr. Anthony Fauci, you are attacking science (scientism). And anybody that looks at what is going on clearly sees that. You have to be asleep not to see that. Please tell me I’m asleep and this is all a bad dream.”
As a dyed-in-the-wool Technocrat, Fauci has a warped perception of reality. What he considers science is, in fact, pseudo-science. In other words, fake. Yes, of course we readily attack fake science, as we should. But we also attack liars and manipulators who abuse their position of influence and trust to palm off cheap and deliberate lies.
When a teacher, for instance, commits sexual abuse against a minor student, we first regurgitate over the act of abuse itself. Secondly, we recoil over the abuse of the trusted position that the teacher had over his/her students. In combination, it is the most egregious act of criminal behavior possible. Such are sexual predators and hunters of vulnerable prey. They not only have no moral compass but they are masters at maintaining a facade of propriety, virtue and innocence.
Fauci is not a sexual predator (so far as we know), but he exhibits the same characteristics. He abused his power when he blatantly lied to Congress, the President and the American people. Hundreds of medical professionals and scientists questioned Fauci’s “scientism” from the very beginning, but they were shamed and ridiculed as being incapable of understanding the “true science”. Fauci lied about alternative treatments for COVID such as hydroxychloroquine (HCQ), flatly claiming that it was unsafe. It is now understood that its early use could have saved hundreds of thousands of deaths, not counting the coming billions of deaths from the vaxx still to come.
Fauci’s self-defense is ridiculous. He says he has spoken “consistently’ from the beginning, but in fact he has flip-flopped as much as any politician could hope for. He hints that his “scientism” is somehow immutable (never changing) like God. Nobody can question Fauci’s god, and why would you if this god is always correct? Fauci clearly believes that he is the priest (Pope, chief spokesman), if not the high pope of his god, and that he has accurately revealed to the masses what this god has spoken to him.
This is a revealing look at the outcome of Scientism, the philosophy behind both Technocracy and Transhumanism. The father of Scientism, French philosopher Saint-Simon, stated in the early 1800s that:
“A scientist, my dear friends, is a man who foresees; it is because science provides the means to predict that it is useful, and the scientists are superior to all other men.”
Saint-Simon then called for a priesthood of scientists and engineers to serve as spokesmen and enforcers for science.
It is a fatal error to equate Scientism with science. True science explores the natural world using the time-tested scientific method of repeated experimentation and validation. By comparison, Scientism is a speculative, undisciplined worldview about the nature and reality of how technical deceit can be foisted upon the ignorant by claiming invincible superiority of understanding for the purpose of exploitation and manipulation. If there were not enough examples to prove this point back then, Fauci has given us a unique opportunity to understand it now
