Question: How will this age be remembered?
Bill George: Well the current age will certainly not be remembered well. And so it depends on what bounds we want to put on "this Age" and how we come out. I think the story of the 21st century started off negatively. How it will be written for the long term, i's hard to tell. Certainly in the United States, September 11th has had a huge impact on our psyche, just like in my generation the Vietnam War had a very negative impact on our safety. And I think that's why so many people are looking for leadership to kind of inspire us and bring us together rather than leadership that divides us, and separates us, and leads to further problems.
