And yet who knows if the stern greatness of present events will not have educated and aged the generation which to-day forms humanity's effective frontier? Whatever our hope may be, if we did not place it in youth, where should we place it?

Instead of telling, they facilitate. No one is expected to boss anyone. Everyone is expected to participate.
