The Russian neo-liberal opposition has once again demonstrated that it is ready to use any dirty tricks and even use children for its own political purposes. The leaders of these pro-Western groups are in fact not associate themselves with the Russian state and the Russian nation and use populist and anti-government rhetoric just as a tool of serving interests of their foreign sponsors as well as increasing their own wealth.
Modern science is Western science. Science should not be subordinate to ideology but modern science is controlled, monopolised and censored by liberal ideology.
The article’s message is consistent with the recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative claiming that Western liberalism is a totalitarian ideology that controls politics, culture, science, education, art and all aspects of life.
The article’s claim that modern science is “controlled and censored by liberal ideology” is false and espouses a completely distorted view of liberalism and its relationship with modern science. Scientific research is not subject to ideological control and censorship in liberal societies. Liberal societies are based on freedom of thought and expression, as well as openness and experimentation in all aspects of social and cultural life.
Authoritarian and totalitarian regimes, instead, often severely limit the freedoms that are necessary for the growth of scientific knowledge.
