A nation must think before it acts.
This Call to Action is part of a major new effort of the George W. Bush Institute’s Human Freedom Initiative. It seeks in a bipartisan way to affirm American values of freedom broadly understood, to fortify the institutions that secure these values at home, and to help catalyze a 21st century consensus that it is in America’s interest to lead in their strengthening worldwide. The goal of this paper is to identify several areas for action by government and the private sector, by institutions and individuals, to advance this effort.
