Some Comments on “Authority” in Physics


There is no authority over thought. In the case of geometry, that most logical of subjects, this is doubly true. In my opinion Oliver Cromwell became an absolute monarch, the opposite of the Putney Constitution of 1647 that the Levellers tried to introduce, and which later became the US Constitution of 1776. However, one of Cromwell’s quotes is appropriate to any organization that tries to suppress thought or the human spirit.

“Weeds and nettles, briars and thorns, have thriven under your shadow, disettlement and division, discontentment and dissatisfaction, together with dangers to the whole.”

So in view of the overwhelming acceptance of ECE theory by professionals worldwide, I call for the rejection of false authority in science as in any other walk of life. Wikipedia is a danger to the whole, its totalitarian disinformation , its use of cowardly anonymity, its grotesque distortions, its factual inaccuracies,and its attacks on eminent people in all walks of life. I call for legislation to counter the proliferation of lie sites on the web. I speak plainly as Cromwell would have done.
