Il grande grido: ethical probe on Einstein’s followers in the U. S. A. / Ruggero Maria Santilli, edited version by Francesco Fucilla. – [USA]: Alpha Publishing 2007. 406 S. amazon

FOREWORD: My Name is Ruggero Maria Santilli. I am an Italian physicist who, back in 1967, decided to follow the footsteps of Enrico Fermi, and left Italy to place his best energies and capabilities at the service of America.

At the time of this decision, I was unaware of the fact that scientific ethics in the U. S. physics community had declined since Fermi’s time. Following my arrival here, I have observed and experienced a further deterioration of scientific ethics. A series of more recent episodes has created my conviction that it is time for the U. S. society to confront and contain the problem of scientific ethics in physics. In fact, the lack of vigilance on ethical issues may well constitute a threat to ‚our free societies.

In this book, I present my case to the best of my recollection and documentation. In Chapter 1, I present the background scientific issues in a way as understandable to the general audience as possible. In Chapter 2, I review my personal experiences with primary U. S. Universities, Federal Laboratories, Journals of the American Physical Society, and Governmental Agencies. Finally, in Chapter 3, I pass to the constructive part, the submission of a number of recommendations aimed at containing ethical problems in physics.

This book has been conceived and written for you, wherever you are. In fact, when (and only when) ethical problems have been brought to the attention of the general public, the U. S. have proven the capability of undertaking all the necessary corrective measures in a way unmatched by other Countries.

Lacking sufficient exposure to the general public, ethical problems remain generally ignored, as we all know well.

I am confident that all necessary or otherwise possible, corrective measures will be undertaken also for the problem of ethics in physics as soon as it is sufficiently exposed to the general public. This book brings the reader through a dark tunnel only because at the end I see light.

My task is that of providing you with sufficient information on the problem as well as on its implications for our societies. The decision regarding possible corrective measures is yours. The initiation of the distribution of this book signals the completion of my duty. Its continuation, if any, is now in your hands.

The problem consists of manipulatory practices on truly fundamental physical issues perpetrated by overlapping rings of academic interests in the highest levels of the physics community. As such, the problem is potentially much more damaging to to society than ordinary damage, as I hope to indicate in detail I throughout this presentation.

Needless to say, the problem may well be of global nature and not only localized in the U.S.A. [in fact, in one of the appendices I present comments regarding scientific ethics at the largest european physics laboratory, the C.E.R.N. in Geneva, SwitzerIand]. Nevertheless, I pay taxes in the U.S.A. and, thus, I shall be primarily concerned with the U.S. profile.
