This is what happens in Communist la-la land where science is subordinated to Marxist dogma:
"In the Soviet Union, resonance theory ? especially as developed by Pauling ? was attacked in the early 1950s as being contrary to the Marxist principles of dialectical materialism, and in June 1951 the Soviet Academy of Sciences under the leadership of Alexander Nesmeyanov convened a conference on the chemical structure of organic compounds, attended by 400 physicists, chemists, and philosophers, where 'the pseudo- scientific essence of the theory of resonance was exposed and unmasked.'"
No wonder the entire pile of shit came tumbling down 40 years later. But yet we see the same mentality still prevailing, with predictable dire consequences, in rotting hell holes like Sweden and Venezuela! :-/
