"John Galt Effect" by Arthur Robinson
Submitted by Ellen Stuttle on Tue, 2009-02-03 04:49
Something I've been thinking about a lot lately is a to-be-hoped-for effect of the AGWA episode: that of the scientific community coming to understand the perniciousness for the honor of their profession of government funding.
Here is a link to an article published today in "Human Events" by a scientist who has understood.
The article is titled "John Galt Effect." It's by Arthur Robinson, the molecular biologist who spearheaded the OISM Petition Project.
("OISM" is an acronym for Oregon Institute of Science and Medicine. The petition now has more than 32,000 signatories.)
I'm not sure if the timing of the article -- its being posted on Ayn Rand's birthday -- was deliberate or a happy coincidence.
