This article postulates the main ideas behind the separation of State and Science that many intellectual men ask for. In the old days people asked for the separation of the Church from the State. Now it is finally time for Science to go on its own way too. Modern democratic countries cannot stand billions of taxpayers money spent without control on the name of "research" for projects that are constantly under a veil of mystery, or for failures for which noone accounts for...
Julious Huxley postulated that "An evolutionary and humanist religion of fulfilment could be more truly universal and could release even vaster human forces, which could in large measure shape the development of the entire world..."   . Should we allow science to become the new religion?!?
Why is State-Science separation needed?
Don't we already have such separation? No!

The H1N1 virus fiasco
The CERN case
We spent millions of Euro and created a "Seed Bank". Great!
Who will pay for the bill? What is the usefulness of such a "supersized supermarker"?
RESEARCH MUST BE CONTINUED!
BUT DEMOCRATIC CONTROL OF FUNDING MUST EXIST AS WELL!!
