Top ten ways humanity is being murdered in the name of 'evidence-based science' (#1 GMOs)

Top ten ways humanity is being murdered in the name of 'evidence-based science' (#1 GMOs) | real utopias | Scoop.it
(NaturalNews) Of all the threats to humanity today, none is more destructive than modern-day "evidence-based science." And by the word "science," I don't mean the humble pursuit of knowledge using genuine scientific methods. What I mean is the dogmatic, corporate-driven brand of distorted science based on falsified evidence, bribery of gatekeepers and corruption of government regulators.

The value theory of labour | Progress in Political Economy (PPE)

The value theory of labour | Progress in Political Economy (PPE) | real utopias | Scoop.it

One of the first times I was provoked to think about the labour theory of value was in a university seminar, in which we discussed what lay behind the prices of things. Demand? Usefulness? Or was it completely random? The amount of labour embodied in a commodity certainly didn’t seem to explain the real world in which prices regularly fluctuate. Indeed, explaining this movement of prices is what most mainstream economic theories set out to achieve with their value theories. However, price is just one entry point into Marx’s theory. I think a better place to start is by thinking about work.
