Paper Abstract

I know that the organizers fully realized that this session seemed particularly appropriate, not only in the light of events at scientific and engineering meetings in the last few years, the somewhat eager (perhaps even over-eager) administration of the Export Administration Act and the enforcement of the Export Administration regulations, the Arms Export Control Act, and the International Traffic in Arms regulations - but also because it is 1984. We should remember, of course, that George Orwell was not predicting what 1984 would be like but was giving a warning of what could happen if we do not stay alert and cherish and respect our basic freedoms.
