Story
Introduction
I have lived and worked for a new world where humans live in harmony with each other and with the rest of nature all my adult life. Professionally, I worked almost 30 years as a professor and/or researcher for public universities: Almost 13 years at the University of California (9 years at Survey Research Center at UC Berkeley, 2 1/2 years at UC Office of the President), and 17 years at the Department of Preventative Medicine and Community Health at the State University of New York--Health Science Center at Brooklyn, and for 1 year at the School of Computer Programming and Planning  in Tehran, Iran).  Currently, I am researching, writing about and advocating ecosocialism (http://forhumanliberation.blogspot.com/).
