Our wise President Obama is skilfully guiding America and the world into a more peaceful future. For many, his changes are still below the radar, and have been slower that intended due to an obstinate Congress. What is the current foreign policy trend in the developed world and in America? The answer may depend upon who is talking so I will present a most ideal foreign policy, yet to become a reality.
AMERICA RESPECTS ALL SOVEREIGN COUNTRIES
AMERICA”S MIGHTY MILITARY NO LONGER INTIMIDATES OTHERS
AMERICA LIVES UP TO THE IDEALS STATED IN THE CONSTITUTION
AMERICA EDUCATES ALL CITIZENS TO LOFTY STANDARDS
SPECIAL ATTENTION IS GIVEN TO EARLY EDUCATION
EDUCATED CITIZENS PARTICIPATE IN A SUCCESSFUL POLITICAL SYSTEM
AMERICA BECOMES THE ROLL MODEL FOR ALL OTHER COUNTRIES
INTERNATIONAL DISPUTES ARE NEGOTIATED PEACEFULLY
Imagine a world of truly educated citizens
The real security for America’s future resides in the strength and character of its people. A strong military has its place, but it has not made us feel really safe. Maybe we feel unsafe due to false thinking.
Safety derives from education and understanding
Geographically situated, America’s lower 48 states are the most secure of any other country, safely cradled between two great oceans and two friendly neighbors. If we feel insecure, how must the people of all the other countries feel. They do not feel secure!
A more enlightened American leadership is required.
The cynic may dismiss this as a fantasy dream, but only because it will take many years to achieve. It may take many generations! … True! … But that is the goal and it can be realized with world education and technological advances. The internet and the cell phone have already resulted in great leaps forward. Untold scientific advances will accelerate our continuing development.
