Dick Levins, in his talk entitled “One Foot In, One Foot Out”, had a lot to say about the politicization of science. He said that for most laborers, the product of their labor is a matter of indifference. This is a defining characteristic of capitalism – the worker’s alienation from his or her labor. For scientists, there is a stake in their intellectual labor. Today, the scientific proletariat is increasing, while the elite class that “owns” science is growing increasingly smaller. Science for the People started out denouncing the misuse of science. It recognized that science is owned, something that is easily forgotten. In fact, most people operate under the assumption that science is neutral, apolitical, detached from class struggle. In the context of today’s most pressing issues, it is essential to show how science is not objective. Environmental injustice is one such manifestation of that fact. As another speaker, Michael Dorsey, pointed out: climate crises unevenly affect those on the margins of society – people of color and the poor. Similarly, marginalized groups are most likely to bear the brunt of air pollution, water pollution, and so one. I think the most important outcome of the SftP conference was to serve as a reminder of the powerful political implications of scientific research.
