  • Homeopathy is base on the notion, that through the extreme dilution of various chemicals, a valuable medicine is obtained. This is fraudulent junk science. Homeopathic remedies are useless placebos.

    In a very similar delusion, Cuban socialism is based on the notion that through the extreme dilution of all human rights and freedoms, a just society will result. This too is fraudulent junk political science, and the consequences are worse than any placebo.
