Education (A)76-02Reagan shares a short article from Newsweek magazine August 30, 1976.

The Hope of Mankind76-02One of Reagan's "feel-good" broadcasts. As he states: "At times it has seemed as if the symbol of American power has become our departing ambassador, flag under his arm boarding a rescue helicopter." But we really need to remember that there's a lot more to America, and most of it is good. Reading from a July 5, 1976 editorial written by Ferdinand Mount for the British Daily Mail, he says: "What the world needs is more Americans. The U.S. is the 1st nation on earth deliberately dedicated to letting people choose what they want and giving them a chance to get it. For all its terribly faults, in one sense American still is the last, best hope of mankind, because it spells out so vividly the kind of happiness which most people actually want, regardless of what they are told they ought to want. We criticize, copy, patronize, idolize, insult but we never doubt that the U.S. has a unique position in the history of human hopes. For it is the only mation founded on a moral dream. A part of our own future is tied up in it and the greatest of all the gifts the Americans have give us is hope."
