- A friend of mine in America is a scientist whose had
some papers published with some very advanced ideas.
- He was complaining to me - and sent me a copy of a letter
he sent to Cornell University - at how they were treating a new paper he
had sent them.
- He has once before appeared on an American radio show
where he discussed how the FUNDING for Scientists is tightly-controlled
these days. Scientists are cut-off from funding - and they never get a
chance to talk directly to those who are rejecting their applications.
Their work is controlled by an almost unseen group of people in a type
of 21st century censorship.
- He told me there are many scientists, doing serious physics,
who are being shut down in this way. Apparently, there is a rigid system
in place in the USA, centered at Cornell University where all this CENSORSHIP
and suppression takes place.
- At the bottom of the page, I created a clickable link
where you can read up on actual case histories of scientists whose work
has been and is being suppressed.

- Repression Of Physicists In The 21st Century
- The electronic preprint archive (arXiv.org), founded
in 1991 at Los Alamos National Laboratories and funded by the National
Science Foundation, was formed as a way for scientists to rapidly disseminate
new discoveries and theoretical developments to the worldwide scientific
community. Its original intent was to be an open forum for papers authored
by credentialed physicists, i.e., those who consistently had papers approved
for public ation in peer refereed journals. Over time the criteria for
! approval of submitted papers to the archive became more complicated and
- Presently hosted at Cornell University under the direction
of physicist Paul Ginsparg, it blocks certain physicists from posting their
papers to this archive. The arXiv administrators maintain a list of physicists
whom they have blacklisted or ostracized so that any paper those individuals
attempt to submit is systematically rejected regardless of its scientific
content. Usually these blocked papers have already been accepted for publication
in reputable peer refereed science journals or in other cases are undergoing
review for journal publication which indicates that these papers are serious
and well thought out. The list of suppressed scientists even includes Nobel
Laureates! One characteristic that these ostracized physicists share in
common is that they have written or published papers in the past which
propose new ideas that challenge traditional physics dogma. In other cases
their pu blished works just happen to run counter to the particular theory
preferences of the small political clique administering the archive.
- Our world is experiencing serious problems such as exponential
population growth, environmental pollution, impending energy shortages,
nuclear proliferation, and climatic change. We cannot afford to suppress
the works of those seminal minds whose new ideas could revolutionize the
way we interact with the world. What if a paper described the discovery
of a new source of energy that could help to alleviate the coming energy
crisis? Or, what if a paper brought to light a serious environmental hazard
which, if unheeded, would result in a substantial loss of life. And, what
if arXiv.org moderators censored one such important paper because of a
possible personal dislike of its author or because it conflicted with a
theory they personally favored? Society cannot afford this kind of behavior.
- In today's fast changing world it is not enough just
to publish one's ideas in scientific journal! s, a pro cess that can drag
on from months to years until approved for publication. Rapid communication
of all plausible new ideas to the academic community through an easily
accessible internet archive is essential to the progress of science.
- The purpose of this site is to alert the public about
the blocking activities being conducted by the Cornell sponsored arXiv.org
administrators and to relate the case histories of those scientists who
have been censored and/or blacklisted. Archive Freedom advocates that this
practice be immediately stopped and that all scientists be given open uncensored
access to this archive to post their technical papers. We respectfully
urge the administrators at Cornell University, as guardian of the world's
knowledge of physics, to honor the contributions of all serious scientists.
