David Allan Adams, U.S. Navy (Retired): Since the end of World War II, the U.S. armed forces have proved largely inept at exercising military power as an instrument of national policy. Retired Navy Admiral James Stavridis concedes that “we have become less successful over the past decades, beginning with the failures in Vietnam and continuing to the frustrations today in Iraq and Afghanistan.” The cause of these military struggles, Harlan Ullman claims, is an inability of the nation’s political leaders to think in coherent strategic terms. Similar problems exist with coherent energy planning.

Bret Stephens, New York Times: People like Bill McKibben and Naomi Klein have made careers saying more or less the same thing - that affluence is not our greatest achievement but our biggest problem.

Above all, the Vogtians say, we need less: less consumption, less stuff, fewer people, and so on.

His Tesla electric car may not survive as the industry leader, but today it is out front.

Paul Driessen, senior policy analyst for the Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow (www.CFACT.org): What indeed was our Creator thinking, when he gathered those brilliant, classically educated farmers, merchants and tradesmen from all over Colonial America, perhaps giving them Divine Guidance to debate ideas and craft documents that declared independence from the then-most powerful nation on Earth, launched a novel, untested form of government – and birthed the bold notion that all men (and women) are created equal … at least as an ideal, at least eventually, at least after the long, bitter struggles of the Civil War and Abolition, Suffrage and Civil Rights Movements?
