Marxist Scientist, Protesting Mass Immigration, Limits License to Software

German scientist Gangolf Jobb pulled the license to his genetic mapping software to protest against politically-engineered mass immigration — which he says prolongs the “collapse of capitalism.”

Jobb wrote on his website:

I am no longer willing to support with my work the political system in Europe and Germany, of which the science system is part. There is no genuine democracy, and I disagree with almost all of the policies. In particular, I disagree with immigration policy. Immigration to my country harms me, it harms my family, it harms my people. Whoever invites or welcomes immigrants to Europe and Germany is my enemy. Immigration is the huge corporations’ interest, not peoples’ interest. I am not against helping refugees, but they would have to be kept strictly separated from us Europeans, for some limited time only until they return home, and not being integrated here as cheap workers and additional consumers. Immigration unnecessarily defers the collapse of capitalism, its final crisis.

He previously pulled his license from the U.S. to protest the government’s immigration policies.

“I dislike that the USA and the EU aggressively promote a way of life that conflicts with my own way of life. I dislike the flood of immigrants they caused to come here — come here to replace unprofitable Europeans like me,” he wrote in February.

Mass immigration is preventing the glorious onset of communism (and true freedom), Jobbs declares:

I have not yet been rewarded for my work.

I think we need a completely different political system.

Nobody should depend on employers and landlords.

Nobody should be profitable for someone rich.

Nobody should have to pay rent, have to migrate.

Most of all, we must limit private property.

We must expropriate the rich.

Free land for all!

A very small elite of very rich people is trying to establish a new world order, and the scientific system is being misused to promote their goals. I am beeing [sic] oppressed and I cannot work as a scientist, because my traditional views and values conflict with that elite’s doctrine. I am being oppressed, because I am not willing to migrate, not willing to serve. Because I insist to be free. Evil old men rule the world.

Beginning Thursday, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Sweden, and Germany, which are “the countries that together host most of the non-European immigrants,” will have to find alternative software.

Scientists who used TreeFinder to map possible evolutionary relationships between different species were puzzled by Jobb’s move. He hasn’t updated the software in several years, they told Science News. His co-author said he hasn’t seen hide or hair of Jobbs in the past decade, but heard he sent ranting emails to other professors in Germany.
