and Flights of Thought on War and Politics

"The long-held dream of human flight was a dream of freedom.  But more important than freedom from earth's gravity is freedom from abuse of the weak by the powerful in human relationships and institutions, for which our system of government was established and for which many have died and many veterans have suffered in the belief that they were protecting a fair, honest, and noble system.  We now believe that the honesty, integrity and viability our system are under grave threats from within, toward which our "flights of thought" are directed. These - like all flights designed to remain successfully aloft, expand our scope of vision, return safely to solid earth, and reach a desired destination in the process - are grounded in realistic thinking and reliable knowledge."
