The scientific worldview is neither scientific nor a view of the world. It is a reductionist view of economics that limits scientific research to the study of matter in motion.

What we call the scientific worldview was tacked onto the natural sciences during the mid-nineteenth century. It is inextricably linked to the philosophy of Marxism, the politics of matter in motion, also called materialism. This kind of politics looks at society and determines its use by measuring the growth of state revenue, without asking any further questions.

Democracy's Weakness: A Dictatorship of Wiseacres

In modern democracies, a majority of people who don’t know how to fish still get to vote on how fishermen ought to do their jobs. Voters would like to have more money and wealth themselves, but most don’t know how to acquire these things. So, they vote for redistributive politics.

In such a system, each voter reasons from the fear others might get ahead of them. Indeed, ‘earning’ one’s wealth has turned into a ‘demanding’ it. A democratic vote, therefore, is always an act of punishment, meant to rob or sabotage people deemed ‘unfairly advantaged’, especially neighbors.
