... does not require a change in policy. His definition of a country tilted in the right direction is: "a country where there is enough free market, enough rule of law, enough free press, speech and exchange of ideas that the true agent of change in history ? which is something that takes nine months and 21 years to develop, i.e. a generation ? can grow up, plan its future and realize its potential.
