National markets are held together by shared values and confidence in certain minimum standards. But in the new global market, people do not yet have that confidence.

No one is born a good citizen; no nation is born a democracy. Rather, both are processes that continue to evolve over a lifetime. Young people must be included from birth. A society that cuts itself off from its youth severs its lifeline; it is condemned to bleed to death. You are the guardians of that lifeline. Nurture it; develop it; give it strength.

The Lord had the wonderful advantage of being able to work alone.
