I will be writing articles on “Academic Freedom” and “J. Robert Oppenheimer,” the physicist who directed the Los Alamos Laboratory (1943-1945) leading to the development of the monstrous and indiscriminate atomic bomb. He was also persecuted for his political beliefs and associations during the McCarthy witchhunts. While I have never felt much remorse for his persecution due to his role in developing the fission bomb of enriched uranium and plutonium, the principle of course is of more transcendant importance.
