In times of change, learners will inherit the earth, while the learned will find themselves beautifully equipped to live in a world that no longer exists.
While the US still focuses on fighting its battles with bombs, and military personnel on the ground, the rest of the world is using far more sophisticated, and potentially more lethal weapons against its enemies, and the US.
Just think the devastation that could be caused by a few well placed cyber attacks on our financial institutions, or our energy grid. And what do you think would be the result of China or Russia blowing up a satellite put into counter cyclical orbit at 22,000 miles in space.
The results would be far more devastating to the US than any potential terrorist or military attack.
I’m not worried about any physical attacks by terrorists. The terrorists don’t need to physically attack us. All they need do is threaten an attack. We [the US] will end up destroying ourselves trying to defend against those perceived [yet non existent] threats.
Just my opinion!
