From an email from my friend, Paul Blumstein, posted with his permission:
"My background is in science. Around 1960, my uncle gave me a large box full of Scientific Americans he had saved from the fifties. I binge-read every issue!
When I had a source of income, I subscribed to Scientific American, Popular Science, Popular Electronics and Science News. Much later, I added Wired.
A number of years ago, I began noticing that some articles in Scientific American were colored by politics. That is not what science is supposed to be about. I went to the masthead and saw that John Rennie was the Editor in Chief. It didn’t take long for me to discover that he was a member of the CFR: a globalist political organization. I didn’t renew.
Lately, I’ve become more and more miffed about articles in Wired. They have become blatantly political. I’m not miffed because it has different political opinions than I do: when I read a science/technology magazine, I expect to find science/technology articles. There are way too many political opinions all around us hitting us in the face. When I want politics, I want to go to it, not have it come to me.
My subscription ends February 2018 so I called Wired and said “please cancel.” They said that I took out the subscription with Amazon and had to cancel through them. So, I went to Amazon to discover that in 2015, I paid for a one year auto-renew subscription. It was very easy to cancel and get a refund. It even had an optional comment box to let the publisher know why I canceled.
Politics does not belong in Science. Be careful of the things you read because it may be influenced by politics."
