We see too many examples of failed leadership. The scandal at Walter Reed Hopital is an obvious example. Less obvious is the example of college professors who promote worthless solutions. A good example is in a New York Times article, "Knowledge is power only if you know how to use it." In this article, researchers promise to deliver "solutions to problems as predictably as technological know-how does today."
America needs better leadership, honest leadership, and competent leadership. The American version of Confucianism, the Timeless Way, can develop better leadership.
