Thomas D. Darby, Ph.D., self-proclaimed as the “Twenty-First-Century Radical,” was born August 3, 1925, in South Carolina. A distinguished professor emeritus, he spent his career in medical research and education. He has published sixty-five scientific papers and four books. He and his wife of sixty-six years have three children, eight grandchildren, and five great-grandchildren.

Darby thinks outside the box and is not limited by the status quo. His career was in medical education. He spent much of his time doing medical research, administration, and teaching, in that order. Thus much of his career involved the use of the Scientific Method. The methods and procedures of the Scientific Method have been used since the seventeen century to characterize natural science. The Method involves observation, measurements and experimentation. One generally forms a hypothesis from known data and designs experiments to test the theory. The process leads to the discovery of new knowledge. Price pointed out in his book titled: Little Science; Big Science, published in nineteen sixty most of the scientists, who have ever lived, are alive today. This is because of the rapid growth of population.

The study of logic, decision-making, and problem solving have occupied much of Darby’s career time. Darby has always believed that the success in decision-making and problem solving by any institution was directly related to their organization. “The organization chart and the ability to use the chain of command has a major effect on their ability to make credible decisions and to solve problems. Observations have shown the nearer the decision is made to the people involved the less the adverse effects on the company’s operations. It does not take a genius to know that when governments are deduced in number and size the cost of government is reduced. When the cost of government is reduced there are funds for purchase of items needed or used by society. When such items are purchased there is an improvement in the nation’s economy.”

Darby has released six books about the need for government change:

  •     Achievement Motivated Leadership: Peace and Prosperity for All: The ex-president narrates the story of his career to a biographer, beginning with his interest in government that began in high school all the way through his Presidency.
  •     Reduce the Number and Size of Governments: At the moment, governments at all levels have large deficits. A substantial reduction in the administrative cost for government will be required in this century to change this. The people are in charge, and they will have to demand that government meet the challenges of the new century.
  •     The Island Boy: Paul Harvey Collins was elected President and greatly improved the Executive Branch of the government. The story begins in the Paul Harvey Collins Presidential Library on the campus of the University of South Carolina.
  •     Sometimes Things Work Out, But Sometimes They Don't: Who Knows This Time?: Donald Powers, a professor who teaches toxicology and becomes involved in poison cases. Don becomes involved in the shooting down of a company aircraft that was destroyed to protect the leaders of a group of criminals. As Don gathers the evidence to bring the group to trial, he discovers that Sometimes Things Work Out But Sometimes They Don't.
  •      Save Tax Dollars: Save Tax Dollars presents data pointing out the lack of proper organization of state and county governments that has added a very large amount of government overhead and resulted in inefficient use of taxpayer dollars. Federal, state, county, and local governments have not followed tenets used in the business world to establish efficiency and effectiveness.
  •      Expecting a Different Result: The Federal Government and many other governments have become disorganized, inefficient and ineffective. It is time for a new Constitution that improves the nations method of government. In the 21 Century it will be necessary for both government and society to become efficient. The US workers will be competition with other nation’s workers. The increasing population will demand efficiency of all institutions.
