A basic understanding of science, and support for free access by all residents to high quality branch libraries with trained Reference Librarians who also understand basic science, is another responsibility of being an Adult in a republic. Understanding the basics underlying any illness, like smallpox or typhoid, the history behind it, and the sensible precautions that can be taken to avoid it, are like teaching Typhoid Mary why she was a carrier. We all have a duty and a right to understand, and to protect our fellow human beings.
