‘Iron Cage’ scientism: historical materialism?

Red Forty-eight Group: strategy to neutralize Red Forty-eight Group: strategy to neutralize Iron Cage scientism/pseudo-science

May 6th, 2016 ·

We keep harping on historical materialism, but our logic is sound: a deterministic theory (it is denied that it is such, but…) creates a Iron Cage effect in which autonomy has been sacrificed to theory. And this is the case for the overall Iron Cage mentality of science/scientism, neo-classical economics, darwinian evolutionary theory, and marxism itself. This is one reason we have challenged darwinism here: it represents a subtle mechanization of behavior and culture, this playing into the hands of elites

via social darwinism, and the result is a brand of the kind of ideology of theory that Marx attempted to challenge. But the result sank further into the quicksand.

It would be a cogent revolutionary tactic to exploit this weak spot in the establishment of ‘Big Science’ by seeing this fatal weak spot and moving to seize the high ground of real science. Almost the whole cadre of science and economics are fixated in pseudo-science, an easy target.

The result can be an improved social perspective based on the rich spectrum of resources of the early modern.
