This chapter discusses Syrian physicist, Dr. Bizri's confirmation about science mindsets for his country after he read the author's “Barriers to Thinking New about Energy” piece. It cites Professor Clark Bullard, who wrote that the “Barriers” paper is useful in teaching engineering and George Wald, a well-known Harvard biologist, who spoke of changing attitudes in science since the beginning of the twentieth century. It also refers to Asher Peres, An Israeli physicist who conflated support for solar energy policies to ancient beliefs in “sun gods” and dismissed concern over nuclear energy safety. The chapter follows the author's letter to the economics Professor Roger Noll that followed attendance at a conference on regulation during the Reagan years. It analyses the four-page letter from the Wisconsin law professor Stewart Macaulay, which was a comprehensive argument for why a wide angle was important as reviewers lacked understanding of the private government.

Keywords:   science mindsets, Asher Peres, Professor Clark Bullard, George Wald, private government, 1980s, letters
