the pinnacle of their abilities, a certain excellence within themselves, and a
balance between themselves and their society.

to provide us with the appropriate means in order to realize that goal. So as we
prepare for the next century, we must recognize that there are many problems
that we must alleviate before this world can become a better place.
It may well be that the nation cannot survive--as a decent place to live,
as a world-class power or even as a democracy--with such high rates of children
growing into adulthood unprepared to parent, unprepared to be productively
employed and unprepared to share in the mainstream aspirations.

welfare program, for the most part these programs are aimed at alleviating
symptoms rather than correcting the cause of the problems. More prisons, more
policemen, gun control, the FBI, and V-chips to block violent programs on TV
will never stop crime and violence. When we devote time, money and effort toward
