U.s. Voted for Change in Approach to Politics – I Vote for Change in Approach to Science

Authors: Rodney Bartlett

What kind of President will Donald Trump be? I don't know. It's possible that in the 22nd century, virtually nobody will remember his name. It's also possible that he'll be called a great man who gave America and the world exactly the kind of change the world of this time required. In an article for the 1967 World Book Encyclopedia ("How to Prepare for the Presidency"), President John F. Kennedy said, "… greatness depends on the times as well as the man." By the way - I once saw a photo of Bill Clinton, the former President and husband of the losing candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton, shaking hands with President Kennedy in the early 1960's. In his article, John has this advice for Hillary: "… if some chance keeps you from the presidency, you will still know that you are prepared to serve well your nation as a citizen." The President-elect has no previous experience in politics. Neither does he feel obligated to conform to political traditions. Little me has no formal qualifications in science – while I recognize the necessity of using the various branches of science and mathematics as an indispensable guide, there is no feeling that scientific tradition must be followed because the centuries show that today's science is often tomorrow's obsoleteness. I'm in the mood to stop taking baby steps, and to try and explain much of the universe in one message. I know it isn't considered scientific to try and explain so much in one sitting. But I'm not a professional scientist, so me and my intuition are free to explore all the outrageous ideas I feel like – they satisfy my curiosity and imagination and are interesting, if nothing else.
