Sure. A valid point. I'll comment directly on her 10 steps in a
different post, tomorrow. Nevertheless, when considering the breath
of her work it is crucial to understand her underlying style in
approaching topics. Her age may show a maturity in topics, which is
great, but I dare say she is famous because of the book on beauty.
This does not diminish her credentials and substantial insights
concerning America's condition, wherein I do find a connection.

If you draw a circle in the sand and study only what's inside the
circle, then that is a closed-system perspective. If you study what
is inside the circle and everything outside the circle, then that is
an open system perspective. - Buckminster Fuller
