Collectivism, secular humanism, scientific positivism (scientism) and centralized state power — Part 2: Centralization of power by Russell L. Blaylock, MD

I have been following a number of neuroscience issues concerning ethics and morality for years but Dr. Miguel Faria’s observations in his article, “The road being paved to neuroethics: A path leading to bioethics or to neuroscience medical ethics,” appearing in the August 2014 issue of Surgical Neurology International, helped me understand the intricacies of
