    Thank you for making your excellent analyses available to those of us with experiences different than yours. My current belief is that I our future is dependent on five precepts: clean air, fresh water security, soil health, biological diversity and human ingenuity. In the current K-12 system, science is basically taught as a body of facts to be memorized for standardized exams, in the absence of synthesis or relation to our daily lives. These days I spend most of my time in the soil health arena, the least well understood of the five precepts. Under separate e-cover, I will forward you my 2016 Recommended Soil Health Readings,

  2. Your thoughts regarding communism and capitalism are very similar to the ones presented by John Gray in False Dawn: The Delusions of Global Capitalism, 1998. I thought it would be of your interest to know about this book.
    Your book about Science, Agriculture, and the Policies of Research, written with WB Lacy in 1983 is cited in studies about agricultural research in Latin America, a subject I am working on at the moment. Trying to find it on the Web is how I reached your page.

    • Thanks much for the reference. As to my 1983 volume, it is long out of print. You may be able to find one in a library somewhere. A number of other studies of agricultural research were undertaken after we produced that volume. One that you might wish to examine (again, I am not sure where to find a copy) is: de Sousa, Ivan Sergio Freire. 1993. A Sociedade, O Cientista e O Problema de Pesquisa. Sao Paulo, Brazil: Embrapa. Best wishes for success in your search. Larry
