Fake science or pseudoscience can be used as a vehicle for propaganda. Some false paradigms such as HIV, global warming, and 'covid' do not fall apart because there are active conspiracies backed by powerful intelligence agencies propping them up.
Science is not a guide to morality. It is immoral to sterilize people even if you think their undesirable characteristics will be inherited. Science is invoked in these matters when the invokees want to do something wrong and want a "scientific" justification for it. Much of this started with the Social Darwinism of the 19th century, which was used to justify economic exploitation, militarism, racial discrimination, and violent revolution. Much of the corruption in science today is due to the corruption of ethics in science, in which scientists have placed economic and ideological interests above ethical conduct. The Covid mess was rife with this sort of scientific misconduct.
