    Dr Fleming,

    It’s funny that you should have said what you did about psychology. A few months ago, I looked through an introductory Psychology textbook which I had owned for years, couldn’t for the life of me figure out what, if anything, any of the information in it was good for, and threw it away. It was just a jumble of facts and propaganda points which often had little to do with each other, and there was no overall coherence to any of it, no organization of knowledge, no systematic understanding, no way to fit it all together into a harmonious whole. That’s what college students get, when their parents pay so much?

    I looked online and was able to review the latest edition of the book, and the propaganda is much worse than it was in my 80’s edition, keeping right up with the sorry times in which we live.
