Dear Editor: Harvard’s president has suggested that the paucity of women in science and engineering or top management positions is due to their genetic endowment and not due to environmental factors such as socialization and prejudice. But a freshman should be able to see the defects in his reasoning (which amounts to saying that there are fewer women in top management positions because they are genetically incapable of, or averse to, the hard work such positions require and the evidence that they are genetically incapable or disinclined is that there are fewer women in top management positions) just made public (The New York Times, February 18, 2005). Like many others, he is president through crime and membership in a certain ethnic group. If you do a Google search on “Einstein plagiarism”, you will see how Einstein stole most of the things he is credited with. In a pamphlet titled “Crime in Academia and Psychology, and B. F. Skinner” that I published twentyone years ago, I documented how universities such as Harvard and MIT function as a syndicate of organized crime. A psychologist who has been reported (by the New York Times) to be the main inspiration for the Harvard president’s reasoning has been a beneficiary of the crimes I have documented. Satish Chandra
