Fully agreed with Gareth Evans, who has many honours and awards in his own right. The EDCL in Aberystwyth self destructed because of this sour envy (Autobiography Volume Two) and because of appointments of cronies in smoke filled rooms. It has become the AIAS / UPITEC so one cannot stop the march of ideas (“…. on ne resiste pas a l’invasion des idees”, Victor Hugo).

Subj: Re: Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award
Congratulations on the plaque. Did not realise you had been awarded this. Fully agree with what you say. True scholarship is often crushed if it becomes too much of a threat to the established view. Who knows how much progress has been lost over the centuries because of this dark side of human nature.
