World’s Problems Solved. Apply within.
I found this on Michael Gates’ Twists & Turns and think it deserves a wider audience:
“We must face the fact that the United States is neither omnipotent or omniscient – that we are only 6 percent of the world’s population; that we cannot impose our will upon the other 94 percent of mankind; that we cannot right every wrong or reverse each adversity; and therefore there cannot be an American solution to every world problem.”
John F. Kennedy
Which is, of course, true, but it only goes to show that whatever a politician says, his words are not imbued with longevity. The next guy, or the guy after that will probably turn them upside down.
