Vern Edwards Posted December 22, 2022 Report Share Posted December 22, 2022 Quote The end of smallpox offers a usefully complete story, in which humanity triumphed unequivocally over a natural adversary. It's a saga that offers lessons about progress𑁋each of which pertains to America today. The most fundamental is that implementation, not mere invention, determines the pace of progress𑁋a lesson the U.S. has failed to heed for the past several generations. See "The Eureka Theory of History Is Wrong," by Derek Thompson, in The Atlantic, January/February 2023. It's not just innovation; it's the implementation that ultimately counts. The author highlights Operation Warp Speed. He also highlights the importance of culture to successful implementation of innovations.
