The prospect of domination of the nation's scholars by federal
employment, project allocations, and the power of money is ever
present—and is gravely to be regarded. Yet, holding scientific
research and discovery in respect, as we should, we must always
be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could
itself become a captive of a scientific-technological elite.
