Richard Armitage urges society to invest in education.
Question: What should we be doing?
Armitage: In my view we ought to be investing and reinvesting in education, and particularly in technical education. We ought to find the wherewithal to be able to come up with a health scheme that can be quite robust and satisfy the needs of the great majority of our population. But we spend our time, as I suggested earlier, arguing things very often which are not very important and leave these big, tough issues unfunded and understated. I was thinking on the way down here today, Dwight David Eisenhower is the one who is responsible for our great infrastructure – this great network of highways. A big idea. Lyndon Johnson had this great society. Richard Nixon put a man on the moon. I mean huge ideas. We seem to be bereft of those ideas. So I think we need to get a little more comity in our political discourse. We need to focus on education in a very serious way. And as I say, get a handle on immigration. And if we do that, I think we’ll have a pretty bright future.
