One example of Soviet science is Kirlean photography.
Whose usefulness has been brought into considerable question when
scientists who were not threatened with imprisonment for coming up with
politically incorrect results tested it out.
If you want
to use politics and humanitarian behavior as a measure of science,
you'll have to do some long hard looking at the U.S. Interment of
the Japanese during World War II is a good place to start with
American humanitarianism. The documentation of that one relatively
small instance is good enough to make good discussion. The
testimony of Japanese-American school children rounded up at
gunpoint is on the books.
Which has nothing to do with anything in this conversation. I was not
talking about the Soviet Union being cruel (although they make the
United States look like saints in comparison), but that faking
scientific results was more important to them than hundreds of thousands
of human lives.
