What follows is a series of 6 posts on one thread here at this International Forum where I've been posting for several years. I have posted between 100 and 200 thousand words at this site, at least two good-sized books. Perhaps after my demise, an event soon to take place as time-flies, tempus fugit, as my mother used to say, perhaps books will be made of all my posts. Perhaps, though, as that erudite Allan David Bloom(1930-1992), the American philosopher, classicist, and academic, wrote in his The Closing of the American Mind , "higher education will continue to fail democracy and impoverish the souls of its students." Who knows what lies ahead, something between utopia and oblivion, as Buckminster Fuller once expressed his vision of the future.
