Vol. IX - No. 10 BERKEE
ACCORDING to a report in a
national printing magazine,
more than 12 billion dollars
was spent last year for "research and development" -- primarily in the fields of chemistry, biology, physics, medicine, and the other scientific

From this research come
the poisons and fertilizers
that are turning our farms into deserts, stocking our grocers' shelves with toxic-flavored "stuffing" for stomachs of
mankind; pills, medicines, and
tranquilizers (such as thalidomide) that are converting the
maternity wards of hospitals
into "j ackpot machines" wherein one knows not if the product of incubation may be a
healthy scion or a deformed
monstrosity; toxins and vaccines for the introduction of
disease germs into otherwise
healthy persons; automation to
offset and counterbalance the
vicious fights between wages
and profits... Which means that
more than half of that research and development is more
negative than positive.

THIS 12 BILLIONS for R. and

rockets, space "spies" and
probes, and weapons of war!
