THE PROBLEM OF SABOTAGE

Interesting, if not a bit poorly put, the implication is the expected
result of disproportionate competition for funds among an expanding
pool of scientists in a climate of static or diminishing support.

The threat that 10-14% funding approval and ~10-1 qualified professionals
per job may have in terms scientific institutional standards like
peer review, sharing of results and materials, mentorship, and all the other 
productive practices which have grown out of an era of scientific expansion is 
not to be underestimated. Unless things change, the spector of administrative 
"sabotage" by those whose "turf" is increasingly threatened can not be readily 
dismissed.
