USA: REAL AMERICAN HISTORY: Real Problem Solving requires Root Cause Analysis, the 5 whys. Not knowing history and not doing Root Cause Analysis, means you enter into and endless loop of rhetoric, finger pointing and interlectual masterbation without implementing real solutions. This part of our Self Study is on taking an objective look at the past in order to be a critical part of designing the future. This is not about finger pointing, this is about meaning medium to long term Problem Solving. Remember DUBAI was built in 10 years. The American took ten years from the symbolic laying of the cornerstone of the "Freedom Tower" to its completion, 10 years. So one of the most competitive nations in the world was built in 10 years. In ten years my youngest child will be ready to start her life as an adult, so we do not have any time to waste.
