March for Science: “Please sir, define your sign.”
At the ‘March for Science’ in NYC on 4/22/17, there were many well informed, impressive and sincere people regarding science and the environment. However, in the midst of so many intellectually valid criticisms on the subject of the march, were people who used this event to promote a different agenda. They had very few impactful ideas to contribute and, in an attempt to further their political narrative, they continued to push brittle and unfounded arguments.
Signs were passed out, often to unsuspecting and well intentioned people, who did not question the origin of the sign and the website it advertised.
Taylor Beacom is a NYC writer, comedian, musician, actor and social issues commentator who is a proponent of having honest conversations about important issues in a thoughtful and candid manner without being stifled by political correctness. He has recently created a YouTube channel called “Beacom of Light” dedicated to fighting hypocrisy and hyperbole on the front lines of America’s streets. In the following videos, Mr. Beacom points out quite deftly, that the over arcing narrative of science is to question things and practice scrutiny. Not employing this method of inquiry at a March for Science is, without question, ironic.
