The article "Separating Fact From Fiction In the 'Age of Information Feb. 6, reviews Jean-Francois Revel's book "The Flight From Truth."
The article prompts me to mention two issues that are of vital concern to the future of the United States. They are: 1) the necessity of dismantling a large portion of the national governmental structure as not only wasteful and unaffordable, but redundant; and 2) being accountable for major past sins of American foreign policy, such as, assassinations and attempted assassinations; disruption of, and even purchase of, elections in sovereign countries; and destablization programs in sovereign countries.
How long can we put off taking responsibility for past wrongs? Nancy Dorsey, Columbus, Ohio
