One example of Soviet science is Kirlean photography. 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.
Kirilian photography was one of the great frauds of the 1970s. You can get
the same results from wet spaghetti as you can from a human hand.
As far as behavior goes, that has nothing to do with science. And at least
we did not gas the Japanese, nor starve them, nor freeze them to death. The
attempt at a comparison with the soviets is too absurd to take seriously.
Countries kill people. That is what they do best and to bother with such
examples is a waste of time. What the hell does the interment of Japanese
Americans in WW2 have to do with the quality of research?
