The list of scientific heretics who were persecuted for their radical ideas but eventually proved right keeps getting longer. Last month, Daniel Shechtman won the Nobel Prize for the discovery of quasicrystals, having spent much of his career being told he was wrong.

“I was thrown out of my research group. They said I brought shame on them with what I was saying,” he recalled, adding that the doyen of chemistry, the late Linus Pauling, had denounced the theory with the words: “There is no such thing as quasicrystals, only quasi-scientists.”

Herman Van Rompuy: Italien behøver ikke valg!

Det er nærmest helt officielt nu: EU angriber demokratiet som styreform:

EU’s Van Rompuy strikes new blow against democracy, telling Italy it doesn’t “need” elections

The EU’s hostility to democracy is now so brazen it thinks it has the right to tell European countries when they can and can’t vote for their governments

In a memorable speech last year at the European Parliament, UKIP’s Nigel Farage lambasted newly appointed (not elected of course) European Council President Herman Van Rompuy saying he had “the charisma of a damp rag and the appearance of a low grade bank clerk.”

There can be little dispute about it. But a few moments later Farage went on to talk about Van Rompuy’s intention to become “the quiet assassin of European democracy.” On that one, he couldn’t have been more wrong. The man’s shouting it from the roof tops.

Eurokratiet

Rune Lykkeberg – 4. november 2011

EU’s demokratiske underskud er ikke længere et problem, man prøver at løse. Det er blevet faktum, man forsøger at fortrænge

Et chok gik gennem Europas overklasse: Han var i færd med at gøre lige præcis det, som man ikke må gøre. [...]

Skulle vi ikke bare afskaffe det der demokrati?

Tom Jensen – 11. november 2011

Nogle gange er verdenshistorien fuld af blodig ironi. I februar 2006 var de fleste danskere – og ikke så få mennesker i andre lande – optaget af en sag, der handlede om at beskytte og forsvare den inderste kerne i vores demokratiske system: Ytringsfriheden. [...]

Trouble in Our Own Backyard? Iran’s Activities in Latin America

The recent alleged conspiracy by Iran’s Qods Force to commit a terrorist attack in the heart of Washington, D.C., appears to shatter the conventional wisdom that Tehran and its dangerous proxies would never risk such a provocation on U.S. soil. It has also called attention to recruiting, training, fund-raising and planning efforts by Hezbollah and other Iranian operatives in Latin America, abetted by anti-U.S. regimes in Venezuela, Ecuador, Bolivia and Cuba. Some U.S. officials have sought to minimize these claims.  Are they simply being cautious; are they downplaying Iran’s culpability to preserve the engagement option; or are they uninformed? Please join us as we host a panel of experts to review documentary evidence of Iran’s increasing influence in the Americas.

Uriasposten om Danmarks Radio:

Et klart mønster tegner sig. Konservative medier får etiketten ‘højreorienteret’, hvorimod venstreorienterede får ‘uafhængig’, ‘velanset’ eller ‘troværdig’.
