WE NEED TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT VULNERABLE ELECTIONS
By Sanford (Sandy) Morganstein
What I’m about to discuss here should not be taken as any kind of partisan sour grapes. I can prove that…the experts I quote in this article have been worried about this issue for more than ten years…through elections of Democrats and Republicans.

Civilization and its Discontents – 2017
Sanford (Sandy) Morganstein
There are reasons why we are living in a period witnessing the decline of 17th and 18th Century Enlightenment values. Reasons why tens of thousands found it necessary to “march for science” and support fact-based reasoning and critical thinking (C2ST - The Enlightening March for Science).
Where would we be without The Enlightenment? The Enlightenment generally refers to Western civilization’s continuing exit from the “Dark Ages.” It follows on The Renaissance (“rebirth” in French). It is the reinforcement of Science.
I say reinforcement rather than “birth of Science” purposefully…to avoid cultural chauvinism. Elements of the scientific method appear in Aristotle and ancient Indian materialism.
