Scientism, Not Leftism, Underlies All Big-Tech Censorship

Please Share This Story!

There is a very dark religion at the base of both Technocracy and Transhumanism. That is Scientism. Once understood, the massive censorship at the hands of Big Tech starts to make perfect sense.

Scientism was first proposed by the French philosopher Henri De Saint-Simon (1760-1825). He wrote,

“A scientist, my dear friends, is a man who foresees; it is because science provides the means to predict that it is useful, and the scientists are superior to all other men.”

Saint-Simon’s idea of science was more of a metaphysical proposition that gave way to what we call today “pseudo-science”. It is mostly speculation dressed up as science. In any case, no scientist or engineer has a crystal ball to “foresee” the future nor are they “superior to all other men.”

Nevertheless, Saint-Simon became one of the acknowledged “founding fathers” of both Technocracy and Transhumanism.

In his day, he proposed that the religious leadership should literally be replaced by a priesthood of scientists and engineers, who would interpret the oracle of science in order to make declarations to society on the human actions necessary to lead mankind out of darkness and into Utopia. Thus, science would be elevated to a state of immutable godhood, worshiped by its followers, who in turn are led by its priests.

Does this sound familiar in today’s world? Well, it should.

You would think that this weird religion of Scientism would have evaporated into history after 200 years, but instead, it has magnified and proliferated.

The priests of global warming “science” see into the future to tell us with certain authority that the seas are going to rise and the world will literally burn up. Remedies are offered to head off such a terrible fate, such as scrapping Free Market Economics in favor of Sustainable Development as huckstered by the United Nations.

The priests of global pandemic “science” peer into the future and tell us that hundreds of millions of people are certainly going to die. The only way to save yourself is to do exactly what they tell you to do: wear a mask, nay, two or three masks, deny all social contact with family and friends, shut down unessential economic activity, etc. What was originally a 14 day exercise to simply “flatten the curve” has now intentionally morphed into a never-ending cascade of pseudo-scientific instructions and demands.

Trust the Science. Obey the priests. Don’t listen to anyone or anything else.

Scientism specifically and pointedly rejects all other sources of truth that cannot be discovered by its priesthood of scientists and engineers. Thus, philosophy is out. The Bible is out. Religion in general is out. Anything that does not fit their narrative is out.

This is exactly where modern censorship can be truly understood. It’s not an issue of left vs. right, conservative vs. liberal or Democrat vs. Republican. It’s an issue of their self-deluded truth vs. reality.

Consider these common areas of repeated censorship:

  1. Vaccine skepticism – Not allowed. Vaccines are science and you must take them, period.
  2. Great Reset – Censored. Cannot be critical of globalization. The Great Reset is predicated on science, social engineering, scientific management.
  3. Global Warming – Taboo to criticize. Man-made warming is “scientific”; all else is deemed fake news and fake science.
  4. Hunter Biden scandal – Absolutely verboten. Such scandals expose corruption among global elite oligarchs, who are all heavily invested in Big Tech and scientific management of society.
  5. Face masks, lockdowns – Their science says do it, no alternative discussions allowed.
  6. Alternative COVID treatments such as HCQ – Totally censored as anti-science, even when offered by prominent doctors and scientists.

What about Twitter’s ban on President Trump and tens of thousands of populist-oriented social media users? Populism is the biggest threat to Big Tech because populists are uniformly against globalization (all about science), the Great Reset (all about science) and scientific bullying.

What about the censoring companies? You guessed it. They are all based on advanced technology: Google, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Amazon, Mailchimp, Stripe, Mastercard, GoDaddy, etc.

In sum, censorship is all about science – their science. Pseudo-science. If you cross their “science” or any part of it, you are going to get blotted out. How do they blot you out? Oh, that’s all automated with technology. It’s called Artificial Intelligence.

The religion of Scientism is threaded throughout every high-tech government agency and corporation in the world. They are the “excluders”. Legitimate scientists and engineers are the “excluded”, and along with them, everyone who dares to repeat their warnings.

To fight Big Tech over censorship is to fight its carefully concealed religion of Scientism, which is precisely what makes it so dangerous.

Populism was a threat. So they brought in Trump as a Trojan Horse and the Q psyop to hijack it and discredit it. They seem to have succeeded


Yes, nothing is as it seems. Yet the worshippers are still worshipping.

Patrick, thank you for the article. After having read Jacque Elul’s The Technological Society written in 1963, I realized that “technique”as he calls what your describing as “science” is something that has an apparent mind of its own. And due to the nature of our love for all things that we (think we) control, as opposed to God and His providential care for His creation working through us, we have become slaves to this technocracy, bound by its propaganda and in agreement with its utter autonomy —to the ultimate end: our destruction or our absorption in something other than Creator.… Read more »


I would have thought the religion of satanism would be better suited to understand what is really going on .


Scientism is just the exoteric face of satanism. The insiders worship the occult.


> It’s not an issue of left vs. right, conservative vs. liberal or Democrat vs. Republican. It’s an issue of their self-deluded truth vs. reality. I don’t believe that it is that simple. It is true that party politics is just a show, but this people are heavily invested in leftism and in the destruction of conservative values. Why? Simply because they want everything that destroys the smaller voluntary communities and as a corollary leaves the individual uprooted and opens the field for them to expand their power. The destruction of conservative values is the condition sine qua non of… Read more »


I believe it is atheism, humanism, darwinism, new age philosophy, etc., that has taken over society worldwide. Scientism is atheism. If God does not exist then there are no set laws, no sin, no judgment that comes to them, and then they are free to do the most evil things possible as Hitler did and his followers so do they. If one was to read the Old Testament, and not listen to Sages, Rabbi’s, and Pastors whom teach their own ideas instead of what the Holy Bible explicitly teaches, the ideal that there is a God in heaven, He is… Read more »

 It’s an issue of their self-deluded truth vs. reality.” (but not true scientists; only $chlock$ter$ :


It’s a sad world we now live in, if a revolt doesn’t happen in the next few years mankind as we have been enjoying of the last 3 or 4 of centuries will cease to exist. ALL the freedoms and advances we have achieved will fall back to the middle ages where only a few billionaires and the well connected will rule over the serfs and feudalism will make it’s return. Where they masses owned nothing , had to rent everything and paid the billionaires the right to live

And how owns big tech? Uh, the game over-“investors”.


Sweet and to the point, Patrick’s message is intelligent and worth pondering. I might have said more about HCQ. Yes, Tony Fauci (who once hailed HCQ, a fact dug up by the intrepid Del Bigtree) wanted HCQ dead so that his chemical solution to covid 19 (a made up disease), which he invested in and stands to profit from, could be put out there. But if covid 19 is just a cold (which, in fact, is just an incidence of someone detoxifying), then taking HCQ (still toxic although in some situations beneficial, apparently) doesn’t make sense. As for censorship, Did… Read more »


Interesting article, but a major problem with explaining scientism is that it’s all too easy to include very real science within it. Many people would gladly prefer the idea of scientists running the world. After all, are scientists not the people who have brought us great advances? Actually not really; most advances in our actual lifestyles have come via the free market, but commies have made that knowledge sinful or forbidden to mention, so yeah, scientists get the credit. I do recall as a young man being somewhat confused, even disgusted, at the way political parties would ‘re-shuffle’ their members… Read more »

But, “scientists say”…. The true threat to culture is culture. The true threat to rational thought is consciousness. We are prescribed wills fighting a fruitless game of survival. There will be no winners in this battle. This is a natural world of devouring and few can stomach any actual truths concerning the human/animal condition. Godspeed in the meantime of the abyss.
