Many probably know: (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/First_they_came_…) …
"First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.”
Where is every single one of us on the list? Does that shape our own perception of the issue?
Society for the Social Studies of Science, who many of us are also members of, has released a statement http://www.4sonline.org/4s_news/position_statement_on_u.s._political_situation
