What are we stuck in perpetual war, and why have Americans lost their opportunities and future? Look to the words of President John Adams. Americans lost out because they stopped paying attention.
“I must study politics and war that my sons may have liberty to study mathematics and philosophy. My sons ought to study mathematics and philosophy, geography, natural history, naval architecture, navigation, commerce, and agriculture, in order to give their children a right to study painting, poetry, music, architecture, statuary, tapestry, and porcelain.” -John Adams
