Pushing Back Against Woke

Editors Note: In his letter to the editor of the Journal of Computational Physics published by Elsevier, Patrice Nishikawa (known scientifically as Etienne Forest) deconstructs the absurdity of the “Inclusion and Diversity Pledge” that the Journal made in May 2022 to reflect the “gender, geography, race & ethnicity, and age diversity of members of the field in which it sits.” The Journal’s pledge is based on an Elsevier policy to “increase diversity and inclusion in Elsevier’s journal editorial processes, remediate unfair bias, and drive greater equity in publishing and research more broadly.”


Nishikawa had been invited by the Journal to review a submission by two authors as part of a peer review. As he accepted the invitation online, he was sent to a web questionnaire about his gender and racial identification. Nishikawa points out the absurdity of a physics journal trying to advance a social justice agenda and informs the Journal’s editor that he has no right to ask questions about Nishikawa’s sexual life.


What can one do when reality has become so absurd that satire can’t keep up? Most submit, as Nishikawa points out in a quote by Mathieu Bock-Côté, in order not to be branded as conservative villains. But Nishikawa has decided that it is time to fight IDE (inclusion, diversity, equity), which, he says, in the guise of achieving a noble goal, is a fascist and racist poison whose final goal is the destruction of Western civilization. And so he turned down the request to review the article and asked that his name be removed from the list of reviewers.


Like Nishikawa, we must all become refuseniks to the totalitarian ideology of Woke, implemented through the weapon of IDE (or DIE – perhaps a better acronym that reflects the impact on our civilization). We must all find our own ways to resist. We can resist as writers, editors, teachers, parents, civil servants, nurses, doctors, truckers… Because if we are going to put a stop to this nonsense, we the people will have to do it ourselves. Most of our leaders are part of the problem.

 

Pushing Back Against Woke


What follows is my personal opinion and in no way reflects the opinion of my employer.


Ce qui suit est mon opinion personnelle et ne reflète en aucun cas l'opinion de mon employeur.


以下の内容は、私個人の意見であり、決して雇用主の意見を反映したものではありません。


A French version follows.


To whom it may concern :


The included pdf is addressed to Professor Stéphane Zaleski in his public capacity as an editor of the Journal of Computational Physics published by Elsevier. None of my complaints are addressed to him personally.


10,000 scientists, hundreds of universities, 100 countries, speakers of 100s of languages practicing countless number of religions built the Large Hadron Collider, perhaps the most complex machine ever built by man. I resent the fact that some bureaucrat, excreted out of the humanities, will tell us, physicists, about diversity, inclusion and equity when they are too dumb to tell apart what a 1 day old rat sees immediately: a mom and a dad.


Many American neuroses are now being imported to Canada and Europe. The George Floyd episode, the collapse of Roe vs Wade, cultural appropriation,etc... are all American neuroses that Canadians and Europeans are importing out of context within their own cultures as if they were the 51st state of the USA. The IDE ideology and its weaponized post-modernist underpinning is one of the principal vector of contagion. As a naturalized Japanese, I will do my best to oppose the introduction of these diseases into Japan.


In Canada, an Ontario court forbade mathematics tests for high school teachers and the central government is massacring the French language all in the name of IDE. This is explained in the accompanied pdf.


In fact, the IDE Canadian remodeling of French, by the government, is a far more injurious attack on the French language than the feminization that was promoted by the Quebec and Belgium governments and resisted for a long time by the French government. You might as well send the Immortals of the French Academy to an epuration tribunal.


The French and the Academy pride themselves in the fact that French has a precise vocabulary. However the IDE ideologues of the Canadian government are roaming the dictionary to replace words with obvious grammatical gender with words where the gender is hidden in an attempt to construct a non-binary French vocabulary. Imprecise? Who cares : diverse and inclusive.


These IDE ideologues must be fought mercilessly at every level. The slippery slope is easy to see : it is called Canada.


I hope that Professors Rémi Abgrall (Editor in chief) and Stéphane Zaleski will realize, via the Canadian example, where kowtowing to IDE can lead to.


Accordingly, I am publicly announcing my desire to cease all interaction with journals that promote the IDE ideology.


Anyone can use or distribute the content of this email and, of course, reveal my identity. I am no longer the coward I was in 1990 when I first notice this nonsense in Berkeley, California. It is time to grow a pair and fight for reason and the scientific method.


I do not base my conclusion on philosophical musings: smarter people are doing it. But I will say that equity in particular, as in equality of results, is a vicious concept on evolutionary grounds. We are not ants. How can evolution deniers of the woke left, the proponent of tabula rasa, explain that less 0.15% of the world population received 22% of all Nobel prizes? (See PS below) What does Elsevier intend to do about this flagrant violation of equity?


So, as a scientist would do, I look empirically at the aberrations that are now happening in countries like Canada that have adopted the IDE ideology. The results demonstrate that IDE is de facto injurious to the scientific method.


Living in East-Asia, it is clear to me that the scientific method, as an epistemological tool to extract knowledge from fairy tales, is perhaps the only import from the West that is universally accepted. If you do not believe me, go and ask the Chinese or Japanese about “democracy, Human rights, Christianity or Natural Law”. And yet, the purveyor of IDE are doing their damned best to destroy it in the West. Shame, shame, shame.


Best regards,


Patrice Nishikawa

(scientifically known as Etienne Forest)


P.S. On a final note, notice that 208 out of 930 Nobel laureates are Azhekanaze Jews. In fact, they mostly come from Central and Eastern Europe and are thus part of even a smaller minority. These people received 22% of the Nobel prizes with less than 0.15% of the World population. They are at a minimum 150 times over represented. Will Elsevier, for the sake of equity,work very hard to make sure that Ashkenazim represent no more than 0.15% of the people involved in scientific publications? Can this have anything to do with intelligence or superior culture or is it due to a vast Zionist conspiracy?

 

A qui de droit : Le pdf ci-joint est adressé au Professeur Stéphane Zaleski en sa qualité publique d'éditeur du Journal of Computational Physics publié par Elsevier. Aucune de mes plaintes ne lui est adressée personnellement.


10 000 scientifiques, des centaines d'universités, 100 pays, des locuteurs de centaines de langues pratiquant un nombre incalculable de religions ont construit le grand collisionneur de hadrons(LHC), peut-être la machine la plus complexe jamais construite par l'homme. Je n'apprécie pas qu'un bureaucrate, issu des sciences humaines, nous parle, à nous physiciens, de diversité, d'inclusion et d'équité alors qu'ils sont trop bêtes pour distinguer ce qu'un rat d'un jour voit immédiatement : une maman et un papa.


De nombreuses névroses américaines sont maintenant importées au Canada et en Europe. L'épisode de George Floyd, l'effondrement de Roe vs Wade, l'appropriation culturelle, etc... sont autant de névroses américaines que les Canadiens et les Européens importent hors contexte dans leurs propres cultures, comme s'ils étaient le 51e État des États-Unis. L'idéologie IDE et son fondement post-moderniste instrumentalisé est l'un des principaux vecteurs de contagion. En tant que Japonais naturalisé, je ferai de mon mieux pour m'opposer à l'introduction de ces maladies au Japon.


Au Canada, un tribunal de l'Ontario interdit les tests de mathématiques pour les enseignants du secondaire. Le gouvernement central massacre la langue française au nom de l'IDE. Ceci est expliqué dans le pdf accompagné.

En fait, le remodelage IDE du français par le gouvernement est une attaque bien plus préjudiciable à la langue française que la féminisation qui a été promue par les gouvernements du Québec et de la Belgique et à laquelle le gouvernement français a résisté pendant longtemps. Autant envoyer les Immortels de l'Académie française devant un tribunal d'épuration.


Les Français et l'Académie sont fiers du fait que le français possède un vocabulaire précis. Cependant, les idéologues IDE du gouvernement canadien arpentent le dictionnaire pour remplacer les mots dont le genre grammatical est évident par des mots dont le genre est caché, dans le but de construire un vocabulaire français non binaire. Imprécis ? Peu importe : divers et inclusif.


Ces idéologues de l'IDE doivent être combattus sans merci à tous les niveaux. Le dérapage idéologique est facile à voir : il s'appelle le Canada.


J'espère que les professeurs Rémi Abgrall (rédacteur en chef) et Stéphane Zaleski se rendront compte, grâce à l'exemple canadien, à quoi peut mener l'à-plat-ventrisme envers l'IDE.


En conséquence, j'annonce publiquement mon désir de cesser toute interaction avec les revues qui promeuvent l'idéologie DIE.

Je ne fonde pas ma conclusion sur des réflexions philosophiques : des personnes plus intelligentes le font. Mais je dirai que l'équité en particulier, comme dans l'égalité des résultats, est un concept vicieux pour des raisons d'évolution. Nous ne sommes pas des fourmis. Comment les négateurs de l'évolution de la gauche woke, partisans de la tabula rasa, peuvent-ils expliquer que moins de 0,15% de la population mondiale ait reçu 22% de tous les prix Nobel ? (Voir PS ci-dessous) Que compte faire Elsevier face à cette violation flagrante de l'équité ?


Alors, comme le ferait un scientifique, j'examine empiriquement les aberrations qui se produisent actuellement dans des pays comme le Canada qui ont adopté l'idéologie IDE. Les résultats démontrent que l'IDE est de facto préjudiciable à la méthode scientifique.

Tout le monde peut utiliser ou distribuer le contenu de ce courriel et, bien sûr, révéler mon identité. Je ne suis plus le lâche que j'étais en 1990 lorsque j'ai remarqué pour la première fois cette absurdité à Berkeley, en Californie. Il est temps d'avoir des couilles et de se battre pour la méthode scientifique.

Vivant en Asie de l'Est, il est clair pour moi que la méthode scientifique, en tant qu'outil épistémologique permettant d'extraire la connaissance des contes de fées, est peut-être la seule importation de l'Occident qui soit universellement acceptée. Si vous ne me croyez pas, allez demander aux Chinois ou aux Japonais ce qu'ils pensent de "la démocratie, des droits de l'homme, du christianisme, de la moralité, de nos pratiques sexuelles ou de la loi naturelle". Et pourtant, les pourvoyeurs de l'IDE font de leur mieux pour la détruire en Occident. Quelle honte!

Cordialement, Patrice Nishikawa (scientifiquement connu sous le nom d' Étienne Forest)


P.S. Pour terminer, remarquez que 208 des 930 lauréats du prix Nobel sont des Juifs azhekanazes. En fait, ils viennent surtout d'Europe centrale et orientale et font donc partie d'une minorité encore plus réduite. Ces personnes reçoivent 22% des prix Nobel avec moins de 0,15% de la population mondiale. Les Juifs azhekanazes sont au minimum 150 fois surreprésentés. Elsevier va-t-il, par souci d'équité, travailler très dur pour s'assurer que les Ashkénazes ne représentent pas plus de 0,15 % des personnes impliquées dans les publications scientifiques ? Cela peut-il avoir un rapport avec l'intelligence ou une culture supérieure ou est-ce dû à une vaste conspiration sioniste ?

Editor at the Journal of Computational Physics

10/24/2022

Dear Sir :


It is with great regret and sorrow that I write this letter.


As you know, I accepted to review an article by two authors who will remain anonymous since I still have some respect for the anonymous peer review process. I included them in a blind carbon copy of this email.


I am a Japanese citizen fully supporting the rights of any group here in Japan, including transgenders, native Korean residents, Burakumin, homosexuals, women, men and others, to live in a place free of bigotry and unreasonable discrimination.


I am proud to say that in our laboratory we have made efforts to support women and that our female scientists are not expected to make tea for their male colleagues as is often the case in Japanese companies. We had several native Koreans as well. I do not know about Burakumin since the Japanese government forbids, at this point, data collection on Burakumin to prevent discrimination.


However recent changes in Elsevier force me to rescind my offer to review. The authors can still contact me and send me a preprint for private comments. I will destroy the pdf I obtained from Elsevier.


As I accepted to review, I was sent to a web questionnaire concerning my gender, ancestry, ethnic and racial identification which I nonchalantly answered. Notice that Elsevier does precisely what the Japanese government wisely forbids in the case of the Burakumin.


I then consulted the Journal's site and read :


Elsevier states in its FAQ :


By inviting Editorial Manager users to self-report their gender identity, ethnic origins, and race (diversity data), Elsevier facilitates an evidence-based approach to advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in research. By analyzing diversity data, Elsevier aims to increase diversity and inclusion in Elsevier’s journal editorial processes, remediate unfair bias, and drive greater equity in publishing and research more broadly.


Moreover, I noticed that the sudden change was triggered by a May 2022 Pledge :


6 May 2022


Inclusion and Diversity Pledge


This journal pledges to improve diversity on the editorial team; in 2022 we will be working to ensure the journal accurately reflects the gender, geography, race & ethnicity, and age diversity of members of the field in which it sits. This commitment sits within Elsevier’s broader ongoing inclusion & diversity efforts. Equity and inclusion in publishing is critically important for scientific excellence and innovation. We believe passionately in the power of an inclusive publishing environment, not only to do what is right, but to enrich, strengthen and advance us all.


This reveals that your journal has been infiltrated and poisoned by the same woke nonsense that is destroying my former country—Canada, a virus which is also destroying the USA.


It is not the role of the Journal of Computational Physics to erase systemic racism, sexism or any whateverism unless it is proven to originate due to a policy within its rank. In particular, it has been my experience that physicists as well as other people of the STEM field, have done everything to favor the inclusion of any minority. Euler welcomed Mr. Le Blanc (Sophie Germain), Hilbert defended Emmy Nöther. My alma mater, the University of Maryland, in the 1980s already, bent standards to allow women and blacks into the doctoral program. I know this for a fact as a female friend of mine benefited from the exceptions that were made to females.


The role of your journal is to publish results in computational physics if the reviewers and the editorial staff feel that they advance the state of science, i.e, the pursuit of Truth about the material world that surrounds us.


The IDE ideology (or DIE as I prefer to name it) has shown its true face in countries most infected by it. IDE does not believe in a unique truth we ought to pursue. It is infected by post-modernism--- a true form of intellectual terrorism. My truth, your truth, my way, your way, everything goes. It is anti-scientific at its core: female glaciology, indigenous theory of light, etc...


In Canada, the central government of Justin Trudeau is now subsidizing « work », via its science funding agency, whose purpose is to decolonize science, in particular, at Concordia University, researchers have received funds to decolonize the theory of light and introduce the wisdom of our indigenous population. It also cut funds to departments who do not have the right percentage of “marginalized” forcing Laval University, in Quebec City, to explicitly create positions where white men are excluded prima facie.


Do I have to tell you that the theory of light (QED) is the most precise theory ever devised by man? A tapestry woven with a single thread to quote Feynman? What can the Cree Indian way of knowing can add to this?


Do I need to remind you that Tycho Brahe, a Copernican, had the entire Copernican solar system rotating around the Earth precisely because our traditional indigenous beliefs, Genesis, interfered with his intellectual faculties?


Do you think, if I review the paper you sent to me, that I should take into account the wisdom of my Merovingian ancestors, maybe Clovis or the good king Dagobert who had his breeches inside out, have something to say about symplectic integration? And as a white Japanese citizen, obviously from a “oppressed” minority, should I throw in the pronouncements of Genghis Khan, Attila the Hun or even Yoshida Kenko in my review?


Actually I would put in my review the indigenous opinion of Fukuzawa Yukichi who famously wrote that Japan has nothing to learn from other Asian countries and that Europe is the most advanced civilization. He was actually correct at that time and this lead to the fast industrialization of Japan while Korea and China unfortunately languished.


The « decolonization/indigenization», born out of the IDE infested humanity departments, is a direct attack against the scientific method, developed during the Renaissance, which Japanese, Chinese and others adopted because it works, not because they like us. No one here talks about Ainu or Okinawan ways of knowing and Chinese do not talk about the Tibetan or Zhuang way of doing physics.


Recently, Professor Englander of the University of Minnesota, has forced medical students to utter a disgusting woke pledge worthy of a Waco or Jonestone style cult (I am quoting Joseph Facal of “le Journal de Montréal”). Here is the pledge :

How long will it be before Elsevier forces us to respect the indigenous ways of knowing?


At the prestigious University of British Columbia, “Lorna June McCue was denied tenure and ultimately dismissed after 11 years at the university in part because of her failure to submit a single piece of peer-reviewed research during that time.


She claimed that requesting publications was a way for the white patriarchy to control the members of an oppressed oral culture. As a person of French and German ancestry, I have Celtic blood, should I demand the same privilege in account of my Celtic roots and request tenure as a druid, as the Getafix (Panoramix) of my university? Should I claim discrimination if the Japanese refuse me tenure?


The fact that her case was considered by Canadian courts is outrageous and again an attack against the scientific method.


Judges Backhouse, Tzimas and Nishikawa of the Ontario Superior Court ultimately held that mathematics tests for high school teachers impose burdens on racialized candidates that had the effect of reinforcing, exacerbating or perpetuating disadvantage. They were declared unconstitutional.


( Actual court judgment https://www.canlii.org/en/on/onscdc/doc/2021/2021onsc7386/2021onsc7386.pdf)


This judgment is loaded with falsehood such as assumptions that typically ignore the multivariate statistical complexity of social issues. In any event, do you think that my mixed-race children would have been better in Ontario with a diverse professoral corps of incompetent teachers of mathematics rather than with the 100% Japanese staff of East-Asian race of my city of Tsukuba? My poor children undoubtedly suffered in the racially « pure » environment of Japanese high schools! I should also point out that in the decrepit educational system of Ontario, teachers often have to teach outside their own specialty : this does not bode well if, say, an African competent French teacher who cannot do algebra, finds himself forced to teach high school mathematics. The IDE fanatics do not care since they assume their ideology to be true, their statistics to be interpreted entirely through the lens of the theories vomited out of the gender study or queer study departments of North American universities.


Requiring your reviewers to know about physics or mathematics also imposes and perpetuates disadvantages. How many of your reviewers in symplectic integration are black women? I bet zero. Following the wise judgment of this Canadian court, infested by IDE judges named by PM Justin Trudeau such as Sandra Nishikawa, should you drop any qualifications for your reviewers? It is far more important to the IDE crowd to have a diverse incompetent body of reviewers than competent ones. Since science is an arbitrary social construct of the white patriarchal tyranny, who cares about competence? Actually, we just need to redefine mathematics to be what the marginalized groups are good at. My math, his math, her math, their math...


As this shows, the need for the very journal of which you are an editor is under attack in countries like Canada, under attack by judges in the highest court of its largest province, Ontario.


And what about language itself? Your journal already states :


« When coding terminology is used, we recommend to avoid offensive or exclusionary terms such as "master", "slave", "blacklist" and "whitelist". »


I will not tell you that it is a slippery slope, I will prove it using IDE infested Canada once more as an example. First of all, you will agree that French does not have a widely used Thesaurus, dictionary of synonyms. This is because the French people pride themselves in using always the correct term--- treating learned language like mathematical language. Therefore, French avoids word salads and the French Academy even removes occasionally words : « Canceller » was cancelled in French.


The Canadian government is now trying to impose a new Orwellian language:

  • il et elle must be replaced by iel

  • ceux et celles by celleux

  • etudiants, étudiantes by étudiant.e.s.

  • tous by toustes

  • député by parlementaire (screw the French Academy and get the non-binary Thesaurus out)

What about the Master Equation for Markovian processes, or worse, what about « l' équation maîtresse », does it imply that the equation has a vagina and is the secret lover of someone? What about canonical and translation, two terms derived from the Catholic Church, should I stop promoting evil and tyrannical Christianity and stop using these adjectives? What about the word « World » itself which etymologically contains « wer » as in virility? Does it imply that the world has testicles? Finally, the more I am educated the less I can speak thanks to the IDE cabal.... Oops, cabal is an antisemitic slur! Actually, the IDE wants to erase Western culture and therefore no one, in the near future, will understand any of the reasons behind these words. How many students of mathematics know the religious origin of translation? Ignorance is strength as Orwell prophetically wrote.


Can one imagine the works of La Fontaine or Molière translated into the Orwellian language proposed by the IDE ideologues of the Trudeau government?


Mathieu Bock-Côté, the Quebec intellectual who is popular in your country, wrote on 10/18/2022 in relation to the usage of this « inclusive » language:


“Mais qui refuse de le faire passera pour un vilain conservateur. La plupart redoutent cette mauvaise réputation. Alors ils se soumettent.” (My translation : But anyone who refuses to do so will be seen as an ugly conservative. Most fear this bad reputation. So they submit.)


Moreover, should the Chinese (and the Japanese) be forced to drop the character 妓 for prostitute because it implies that all sex workers are women (女)? For example, I propose that the racist and mysoginistic Chinese use my inclusive neologism:

I am sure that the Academica Sinica in Taiwan and the Academy of Sciences in Beijing will rush to offer me a job as an "inclusive" editor!


Where do we stop in attacking and destroying our traditions in the name of an ideology that attacks the true diversity of opinion which, with free speech, is absolutely essential to the scientific method? A scientific method which is perhaps perhaps the only Western value accepted universally around the globe.


Bock-Côté is correct. IDE is a vicious ideology, which, as you can see, is attacking in Canada the genius of the French language in the name of the various noble goals it pretends to pursue.


I have been aware of this post-modernist, post-national and anti-scientific nonsense since I started my career in Berkeley in 1985.


The anti-reason post-modernist crowd that now pollutes every segment of Western society interprets the lack of “oppressed” people in the STEM as a proof that the STEM was socially constructed to oppress and control the poor racialized minorities, except the Jews and the East-Asians who, for some reasons, now benefit from White oppression. This is why we have now female glaciology, female versions of introductory physics, indigenous theory of light, etc...


IDE, infiltrating itself in the guise of achieving a noble goal, is a fascist and racist poison whose final goal is the destruction of Western civilization.


I spoke against this, now I must act and cease to be a coward.


Therefore, I request that you take my name out of the pools of reviewers.


Finally, I want to add that if I were to review, I would prefer a blind review. To quote the insane British Columbia Human Right code, I do not care about


Indigenous identity, race, colour, ancestry, place of origin, religion, marital status, family status, physical or mental disability, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, or age of that person or that group or class of persons. “


In fact, even if your two authors were extreme right wingers or even murderers awaiting execution, I would review their article on its own merit. It is my duty to judge their scientific contribution, not their characters and certainly not their sexual habits or gender identification. It is of no concern to me and it should be of no concern to Elsevier. Certainly, you have no right to ask me questions about my sexual life. NONE.


I reject the concept of IDE completely as presently applied and in particular its underlying assumption that we are born tabula rasa. Quite to the contrary, this lack of equity, say between male and female, which is almost certainly largely innate given the level field provided in the West and Darwinian evolution, and thefore is not something to be addressed by a journal of computational physics.


IDE is a vector carrier of a poisonous anti-scientific ideology.


Sincerely yours,

Cher Monsieur :


C'est avec beaucoup de regret et de tristesse que je vous écris cette lettre.


Comme vous le savez, j'ai accepté de faire la critique d'un article de deux auteurs qui resteront anonymes car j'ai encore un certain respect pour le processus d'évaluation anonyme par leurs pairs.

Ils recevront une copie de ce courriel par l'intermédiaire d'une copie carbone invisible.


Je suis un citoyen japonais qui appuie sans réserve les droits de tout groupe ici au Japon, y compris les transgenres, les résidents coréens de souche, les Burakumin, les personnes homosexuelles, les femmes, les hommes et autres, à vivre dans un endroit exempt de sectarisme et de discrimination injustifiable.


Je suis fier de dire que dans notre laboratoire, nous avons fait des efforts pour soutenir les femmes et que nos scientifiques femmes ne sont pas censées faire le thé pour leurs collègues masculins, comme c'est souvent le cas dans les entreprises japonaises. Nous avions également plusieurs Coréens de souche. Je ne sais pas ce qu'il en est des Burakumin puisque le gouvernement japonais interdit, à ce jour, la collecte de données sur les Burakumin pour éviter toute discrimination.


Cependant, les récents changements intervenus chez Elsevier m'obligent à annuler mon offre de critique. Les auteurs peuvent toujours me contacter et m'envoyer une préimpression pour des commentaires privés. Je vais détruire le pdf que j'ai obtenu d'Elsevier.


Lorsque j'ai accepté de procéder à l'examen, j'ai été envoyé vers un questionnaire en ligne concernant mon sexe, mon ascendance, mon identification ethnique et raciale, auquel j'ai répondu nonchalamment. Remarquez qu'Elsevier fait précisément ce que le gouvernement japonais interdit sagement dans le cas des Burakumin.


J'ai ensuite consulté le site du Journal et j'ai lu :


Elsevier déclare dans sa FAQ :


By inviting Editorial Manager users to self-report their gender identity, ethnic origins, and race (diversity data), Elsevier facilitates an evidence-based approach to advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in research. By analyzing diversity data, Elsevier aims to increase diversity and inclusion in Elsevier’s journal editorial processes, remediate unfair bias, and drive greater equity in publishing and research more broadly.


De plus, j'ai remarqué que ce changement soudain fut déclenché par un engagement de mai 2022 :


6 May 2022


Inclusion and Diversity Pledge


This journal pledges to improve diversity on the editorial team; in 2022 we will be working to ensure the journal accurately reflects the gender, geography, race & ethnicity, and age diversity of members of the field in which it sits. This commitment sits within Elsevier’s broader ongoing  inclusion & diversity  efforts. Equity and inclusion in publishing is critically important for scientific excellence and innovation. We believe passionately in the power of an inclusive publishing environment, not only to do what is right, but to enrich, strengthen and advance us all.


Il s'avère que votre journal a été infiltré et empoisonné par la même absurdité woke qui détruit mon ancien pays, le Canada, un virus qui détruit également les États-Unis.


Ce n'est pas le rôle du Journal of Computational Physics d'effacer le racisme, le sexisme ou toute autre forme de racisme systémique, sauf s'il est prouvé qu'il provient d'une politique interne. En particulier, mon expérience m'a montré que les physiciens, ainsi que d'autres personnes du domaine des STIM, ont tout fait pour favoriser l'inclusion de toute minorité. Euler a accueilli M. Le Blanc (Sophie Germain), Hilbert a défendu Emmy Nöther. Mon ancienne université, l'université du Maryland, dans les années 1980 déjà, a plié les normes pour permettre aux femmes et aux Noirs d'accéder au programme de doctorat. Je le sais de source sûre, car une de mes amies a bénéficié des exceptions qui ont été faites pour les femmes.


Le rôle de votre journal est de publier les résultats de la physique computationnelle si les évaluateurs et l'équipe de rédaction estiment qu'ils font progresser l'état de la science, c'est-à-dire la recherche de la vérité sur le monde matériel qui nous entoure.


L'idéologie IDE (ou DIE comme je préfère l'appeler) a montré son vrai visage dans les pays les plus infectés. L'IDE ne croit pas en une vérité unique que nous devrions poursuivre. Elle est infectée par le post-modernisme--- une véritable forme de terrorisme intellectuel. Ma vérité, ta vérité, ma façon, ta façon, tout est permis. Elle est anti-scientifique à la base : glaciologie féminine, théorie indigène de la lumière, etc...


Au Canada, le gouvernement fédéral de Justin Trudeau subventionne maintenant des “travaux”, via son agence de financement des sciences, dont le but est de décoloniser la science. En particulier, à l'Université Concordia, des chercheurs ont reçu des fonds pour décoloniser la théorie de la lumière et introduire la sagesse de notre population autochtone. Il a également coupé les fonds aux départements qui n'ont pas le bon pourcentage de “marginalisés” ; l'Université Laval, à Québec, a ainsi créé explicitement des postes où les hommes blancs sont exclus d'office.


Dois-je vous dire que la théorie de la lumière (EDQ) est la théorie la plus précise jamais conçue par l'homme ? Une tapisserie tissée avec un seul fil pour citer Feynman ? Qu'est-ce que le mode de connaissance des Indiens Cree peut ajouter à cela ?


Dois-je vous rappeler que Tycho Brahe, un copernicien, a fait tourner tout le système solaire copernicien autour de la Terre précisément parce que nos croyances autochtones traditionnelles, la Genèse, interféraient avec ses facultés intellectuelles ?


Pensez-vous, si je révise le document que vous m'avez envoyé, que je devrais tenir compte de la sagesse de mes ancêtres mérovingiens, peut-être Clovis ou Dagobert qui avait mis sa cullote à l'envers, ont quelque chose à dire sur l'intégration symplectique ? Et en tant que citoyen japonais blanc, manifestement issu d'une minorité “opprimée”, devrais-je inclure dans ma critique les déclarations de Gengis Khan, d'Attila le Hun ou même de Yoshida Kenko ?


En fait, je mettrais dans ma revue l'opinion indigène de Fukuzawa Yukichi qui écrivit que le Japon n'a rien à apprendre des autres pays asiatiques et que l'Europe est la civilisation la plus avancée. Il avait raison à l'époque et cela a conduit à l'industrialisation rapide du Japon, tandis que la Corée et la Chine languissaient.


La “décolonisation/indigénisation”, nées des départements de sciences humaines infestés d'IDE, est une attaque directe contre la méthode scientifique, développée durant la Renaissance, que les Japonais, les Chinois et les autres ont adoptée parce qu'elle fonctionne, et non parce qu'ils nous aiment. Personne ici ne parle des modes de connaissance des Aïnous ou des Okinawanais et les Chinois ne parlent pas de la façon tibétaine ou zhuang de faire de la physique.


Récemment, le professeur Englander, de l'université du Minnesota, a obligé des étudiants en médecine à prononcer un serment dégoûtant, digne d'une secte de type Waco ou Jonestone (Je cite Joseph Facal du “Journal de Montréal”). Voici le serment :

Combien de temps faudra-t-il attendre avant qu'Elsevier nous oblige à respecter les modes de connaissance indigènes ?


À la prestigieuse université de Colombie-Britannique, “Lorna June McCue s'est vu refuser la titularisation et a finalement été licenciée après 11 ans à l'université, en partie parce qu'elle n'a pas soumis un seul travail de recherche évalué par les pairs pendant cette période”.


Elle affirmait que demander des publications était un moyen pour le patriarcat blanc de contrôler les membres d'une culture orale opprimée. En tant que personne d'ascendance française et allemande, j'ai du sang celtique, devrais-je exiger le même privilège en raison de mes racines celtiques et demander la titularisation en tant que druide, comme le Panoramix de mon université ? Devrais-je invoquer la discrimination si les Japonais me refusent la titularisation ?


Le fait que son cas fut examiné par des tribunaux canadiens est scandaleux et constitue une nouvelle attaque contre la méthode scientifique.
