William R. Odom, Ph.D.
"The modern world worships the gods of speed and quantity, and of the quick
and easy profit, and out of this idolatry monstrous evils have arisen.
Yet the evils go long unrecognized. Even those who create them manage by
some devious rationalizing to blind themselves to the harm they have done
society. As for the general public, the vast majority rest secure in a
childlike faith that 'someone' is looking after things - a faith unbroken
until some public-spirited person, with patient courage, presents facts
that can no longer be ignored."
Rachel Carson, 1964
