I'm sorry to hear, Tony, that you are one of the immediate targets. More power to you and your union! If I can help in any way, let me know. I'm sure, if Welles were still alive, he would be fulminating against the current onslaught against the America created since the New Deal. Unions and the public schools, need to be destroyed, according to the New World Order people, because they are the only organized bulwarks against their drive to control everything.
What puzzles me is how tens of millions of Americans can be so misled as to go along with what, for all intents and future understandings, will be a fascist take over. Lots of luck to us under the new Robber Barons. But even in the late 19th Century, Academia was valued! I hope that the corporatists have underestimated the power of learned minds. Let's see how they react when dozens of Nobel Prize winners take off for Europe, Brazil, or China.
I'm sure that distinguished scholars like Richard France will stand behind you.
Keep Wellsians informed, Tony.
