Only by Permission #5

"A right is the sanction of independent action.
Only a slave acts on permission."
Ayn Rand

Where the scientific method is observable, empirical, measurable and political.

NB - This is a direct result of abdicating scientific research to government. As anyone with half a clue realizes, if you can control the money you can control the message, the information, and ultimately (for a while) the truth.

Funding for science is not a proper role for a liberal western government precisely because supporting or censoring ideas is an indicator of demagoguery not freedom.
