After 4 years of research, I wanted to get this edition out, as it outlines a great deal of information the American people ought to be aware of if we are to have much chance of preventing similar disasters in the future. I intend to continue its development, however, along the lines of perspectives drawn from the philosophers of War; from Sun Tzu and Clausewitz, to America’s own Colonel John Boyd, in order to provide sharper relief to the critical lessons that need to be drawn from the Bush administration’s unfortunate choices.
I love this country, the constitution of the United States, and the rule of law under which we were founded. But I also understand that no nation can remain great without a great middle class and I fear these things are being rapidly eroded away with good jobs being sent overseas, misguided militarism, and a governing class more focused on self-advancement than their responsibilities to the citizens.
That we can be a great and good people was demonstrated by our response as a nation in the first days and months following September 11, but we are allowing ourselves to be mislead by a culture of greed and conformity and a poverty of understanding that wastes away our common ability to observe and make effective decisions.
People are choosing to see the world as they want it to be instead of as it is and so, as others have noted, our leaders become more extreme and ineffective while much of the country flounders.
This is not what America is about.
We are a young culture and in our short history, at times of crises, we have generally chosen the better path. Will we do that this time or persist in a self-destruction that comes under the guise of strength?
