The following is additional biographical information that relates specifically to the essay that I am disseminating as a free eBook on Smashwords: "Dr. Jozef Bicerano (Ph.D., Harvard University) was raised in Turkey as a non-religious Sephardic Jew. He used to categorize his political views as those of a European-style social democrat when he lived in Turkey. He describes himself as a moderate and a progressive in the American political context. He has been a Unitarian Universalist for the last three decades. He is a materials scientist who has been working in industrial research and development throughout his career, first in a corporate setting and now in running his own consulting and contract research firm. While never having been a professional politician, he has always maintained a strong interest in important social and political issues."
