My theme of science as entertainment derives from the follies,
and specifically Colonel Green's attitude.
Everyone should be able to make their own entertainment. Before TV, kids spontaneously set up their own plays and music. Most of the output was extremely nonprofessional, but that wasn't the purpose. DOING IT and LEARNING IT was the purpose. A few of the players became professional, but the others learned and gained confidence and gained job skills. Every skill you learn improves your ability to do everything.
Science was also closer to entertainment when most boys were building crystal radios, or screwing around with chemicals and explosives, or digging holes to find bugs and slugs. Chemistry and biology sets had beakers and Bunsen burners and microscopes.
When you have your own way of examining Nature, your own telescope to a distant star, you can't be fooled by Deepstate myths. Example: Ham radio is fun, AND hams were able to listen to foreign countries directly, shorting out Deepstate distortions. Hams and SWLs knew that our propaganda about Russia was mostly wrong.
What would be the most productive
way to bring science back into the realm of entertainment? How can we turn play into useful Popper-style examination and counteraction of demonic fake science?
One example would be an simple electron microscope, or an optical microscope capable of examining viruses. A simple gas analyzer might also be helpful.
BE YOUR OWN BEACON.
Just for repetitive clarity, I don't believe that private science will influence the demons. They don't need to be "made aware of the facts". They KNOW THE FACTS, and that's exactly why they can do such an efficient job of destroying the facts and destroying the world. I'm only trying to recommend a less serious attitude toward science for non-demons. We still have to obey direct commands, but we DON'T have to absorb and adopt the upside-down dysinformation and brain-destroying dyslogic.
