Kathy Higley was majoring in physical chemistry at Reed College. He operates research nuclear reactor. A lot of students like him will soon be out of school looking for jobs. That the unemployed, pervasive product of the new Industrial Revolution, should be coopted to carry it further, was ironic and tragic. Services for which many of them were qualified—in education, health, conservation, social work, the arts—were reduced and even starved because the wealth of the society was channeled into the unneeded, the wasteful, the damaging. All this stressed the need not for atomic energy, but for a far more basic revision of economic arrangements, and the communication system interlocked with them. The historian-philosopher Arnold Toynbee, in Surviving the Future, offered a long-range view of the dilemma and its implications. He felt it inevitable that a small minority of mankind would be able to produce, with technology, the products needed by all.
