For a brief background, Lykenskoism is based on the principles of Michuri, one of the more important fathers of scientific agriculture--whose pioneering work extends to the hybridization of plants and, combining with some of the principles of Lamarck's evolutionary theory, perhaps the fact that predominance could be shaped by factors such as ontogeny, and so forth. But besides its fraudulent science, it is notorious as a powerful political movement that was aided by the centralized government control of genetics and agriculture.

My question is this: Is it possible that the United States would witness a similar movement or undercurrent?

Sure. The modern ecology movement is built on enforcing a type of political correctness. Nothing wrong with fighting pollution but when you get to things like California moving to ban the sale of black cars to fight global warming or demanding imported oil over domestic oil, it's nutcase stuff.
