Eek. I started to comment: a leetle bit like saying `I stumbled upon the
work of a rather remarkable fellow. One--' But then I wasn't able to find
a name where most of the folks here under the age of 50 would have a clue.
Oswald Spengler? Julian Huxley? Aldous Huxley for that matter? Arnold
Toynbee? Arthur Koestler? Alex Comfort? Oh well. (And why do so many of
these people's given names start with `A'?)

I'll spoil the surprise, because it's so salutary. J. D. was a committed
and brilliant Marxist (like his equally brilliant and far-seeing
technophile compatriot J. B. S. Haldane).
