This link between leadership and learning is not only essential at the community level, it is even more indispensable in world affairs.  Ignorance and misinformation can handicap the progress of a city or a company, but they can, if allowed to prevail in foreign policy, handicap this country’s security.  In a world of complex and continuing problems, in a world full of frustrations and irritations, America’s leadership must be guided by the lights of learning and reason, or else those who confuse rhetoric with reality and the plausible with the possible will gain the popular ascendancy with their seemingly swift and simple solutions to every world problem.  (Kennedy & Leadership & Learning)  John F Kennedy, remarks prepared for Trade Mart in Dallas 22nd November 1963 but not delivered
