We recommend today two thoughtful articles, both dealing with the pernicious threat of technocracy, which recently appeared in the British Financial Times.

In his article appearing 25 September commentator Michael Schrage deplored the undue deference given haughty scientists today, likening this to the misguided respect once shown to eugenicists, whose atrocious pseudo-science in fact provided the fundaments of "lifestyle epidemiology" as practiced in our times. Schrage’s article requires no further introduction: we simply recommend you enjoy it and the responsive article of October also posted on our news page separately today.
