Over the years I have written four letters to The New York Times.Two of them were published which shows that my view points were taken into consideration.

Jeremy Bentham, a philosopher ahead of his time!

Jeremy Bentham was an English philosopher from the 18th Century, who advocated
equal right for women, freedom of expression,
decriminalization of homosexuals,
abolition of slavery and many other causes. He was way ahead of his time. When he died,
left specific instructions that his skeleton should be permanently preserved inside a
wax image of himself.  Now his wax image can be seen at the Metropolitan Breuer
Museum, New York City, at the exhibition " Like Life: Sculpture, Color and The Body"
