"plymouth bay colony" Discussed on The Doug Collins Podcast

"And in looking into space, this was something that was not looked at as easy. There was not a genuine consensus by the time of this speech that this was where we know to be spending money, that there was a real fascination with what can we do and what can we become if we choose this path towards space exploration. It was interesting that he also then quotes William Bradford and the founding of Plymouth bay colony. Who said that all great and honorable actions are accompanied with great difficulties in both must be enterprise and overcome with answerable courage. In other words, this angle means he's laying it out. He doesn't want anybody to come to think, okay, this can be just easily conquered. This idea that we could go to the moon or space exploration is going to be something that is going to be fraught with without danger that everybody can do it. He's laying no, this is not what is happening. But what he also then continues on. He says that man in his quest for knowledge and progress is determined and can not be deterred. The x-rays of space will go ahead, whether we join in it or not, and it is one of the greatest adventures of all time and no nation which expects to be the leader of other nations can expect to stay behind in the race for space. He also then as an interesting paragraph, the next paragraph basically is a real direct threat, direct shot across the ballot, Russia, when he says, look, we're going to go there for freedom and we're going to continue invention and we're going to go to space with a manner of freedom and peace, unlike the conquest that many would fear Russia or others would have. Again, setting it up in being very contrast terms that the people would understand and what they're looking at. This gives a speech that is looking forward, examines the reality of the world, and then looks forward as we go. Then he gets into what is seemingly so lacking in many times liberals and I fight frankly, sometimes conservative as well, is it leadership is going to matter. He said, yeah, the vows of this nation can only be fulfilled if we in this nation are first and therefore intend to be first. In short, our leadership in science and industry, our hopes for peace and security, our obligations to ourselves as well as those all require us to make this effort to solve these mysteries to solve them for the good of all men and to become the world's leading space faring nation. And he says we set sail on this new sea because there is new knowledge to be gained and you rise to be won and there must be one for you and use for progress for all people. For space science like nuclear science and all technologies has no conscious of its own and whether it will become a force for good or ill, the pins all man and only if the United States occupies the position of free eminence. Can we help decide whether this new ocean will be the sea of peace or will be a terrifying theater of war. He's calling on Americans. He's calling on our national pride. He's calling on the fact that we can do all these things. We've been able to do all these things in history. We've been able to come up with the industry. We've been able to come up with a cars and the planes and the nuclear devices. We've done all these things, but if we do not take leadership and bring these things to good for those not only in our country, but for around the world, if we do not actually lead, then the others, as it says here, the science itself does not know, has no conscious of his own. So it can be either used by those who want to use it for evil or those who want it for good. Candidate is laying out the argument that this needs to be used for good and the only way that we're going to be able to use that for good is Tapping into American excellence, Tapping into the American psyche to say, this is something we need to get behind and everybody close in. What he was envisioning actually, I think as you look at it, became the reality that he had young men and young women who decided, hey, I want to be part of this space program. I want to go and explore space. I want to learn the math and the sciences of how we built rockets and how we go into space and how we do these things. That was generation a whole generation that became interested in the science as illustrated in the mass and industry and how we are able to get there. It was this building beyond ourself. The Kennedy was saying this is not simply something that benefits us, but it benefits all of us as a whole. And in doing so allows us to say for the future generations, if for future alive, a hope and an optimism that is only expressed with freedom and liberty are attached to it. Now, he goes on to say, there's no strife, no predators, no national conflict in outer spaces of yet. And he's like, he's acknowledging that. He said, right now, he said nothing's going on in space. He said his hazards are hostile to us all, is conquest deserves the best of all mankind..
