The Mission: To inspire a new American leadership…. How?
With a clear understanding of America’s true destiny, we can motivate other nations to want to follow our lead into the future. How do we begin?
“Better cultural relations make better foreign policy.”
You can engage another country only three ways: militarily, economically or culturally. The first two, take a tremendous amount of capital and possible loss. Cultural relations: (concerts, art exibitions, film, literature, theater, global discussions) are the most cost effective way to achieve positive results. Smart power for the twenty first century. This constant flow of joint-international goodwill is priceless. It can help prevent a war and make friends out of enemies. For years, I’ve been exploring the globe to see firsthand how the peoples of the world live and think. Many in the international community tell me America is losing its brilliance. America’s political leadership has forgotten its mission… To inspire the world.
The final hope for the future of man.
It seems like the world is now in a tailspin into cultural mediocrity. Few believe in a better future. Reality TV and violent video games provide young people with mindless options for conformity. If this continues, what will mankind look like in one hundred years? The best and brightest? Will man be a slave to his own fears? Or will he transcend his animal instinct in order to solve the big question, “When does quality life end and absolute survival begin? Aristotle said, “Life is a festival only to the wise.”
The torch of world leadership which America constantly has to earn, has not been given historically to other nations. There were dictators, war lords and kings. From its birth in 1776, America has tried to carry that torch alone, yet may fall like Rome. For that catastrophe to happen, American people of the fifty states, must allow the Washington, DC politicians and financial oligarchs to destroy the Constitution of the American republic. Tyranny or Liberty. It is the American’s choice, yet many know it not. We live in critical times. Each state will soon decide America’s future, causing a chain of events unstoppable.
It is prudent to remind men in uniform, that they swore an oath to “protect and defend the Constitution” and not politicians and their agendas. Will American soldiers and law enforcement uphold their secret honor as the founding fathers did? International travelers now ask me, “What happened to America? We always thought that America was the light of the world.” I believe America has lost its compass for human transcendence.
We must bring back our pioneer spirit. We owe it to the founding fathers to continue the ideals which they fought and died for. Even as nations continue to globalize, I feel there should be a special place where the people of the world look for inspiration. If America loses that, it loses its essence. Why have the Statue of Liberty if America is just another country? If America doesn’t carry that torch, who will?
We can’t be afraid to take greater risks; that’s how we learn; it’s part of who we are. America’s mission is to inspire the imagination of the individual. That’s what our country is all about. That’s why we’re here.
Better cultural relations really do make better foreign policy. It’s the foundation of all human interaction. One hundred years ago, the Wright Brothers attempted the impossible. Today we fly into the heavens.
The impossible just hasn’t been figured out yet. I ask you to join me in my mission.
It’s time for the new “American Renaissance.”
