Dennis L. Feucht is an American-acculturated electronics engineer who lives in Belize, Central America. He began in electronics engineering at Tektronix in Beaverton, Oregon at age 17, and spent 15 years there, designing electronic measurement instruments and doing research. He then migrated to power electronics, and since 1988 has been an independent worker, as Innovatia Laboratories www.innovatia.com. He now writes engineering articles and does electronics research. He became aware of the larger social situation when he volunteered to be on a committee for implementing outcomes-based education, required of the local rural PA government school district. After a year of full-time study of the social order, he migrated to Belize with his wife, and has been there for over 15 years.
