We need a culture that will produce people eager to do things

but we need even more

a culture that will make it possible to decide what to do . . .

Decisions about goals requires values, meaning, context, perspective.

They can be set . . .

only by people who have some inkling of the whole picture..


~ Carroll Quigley ~ (1910-1977)

Professor of History at Georgetown University, member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), mentor to Bill Clinton

Source.. Tragedy and Hope: A History of the World in Our Time Carroll Quigley; New York: Macmillan, 1966 [p. 1,274].

Quigley's observation on the need for a democratic educational process to teach the whole man, rather than just specializations..





I am now quite sure that 'Tragedy and Hope' was suppressed although
I do not know why or by whom. ~ C.Quigley ~
