George W. Bush Is Getting Brain-jacked

James Hughes: Vannevar Bush was an electrical engineer appointed by Franklin Roosevelt to run the US Office of Scientific Research and Development during the WWII. At the conclusion of the war, Roosevelt asked Bush to submit a report on ways the federal government could promote "national health," "new enterprises" and the "standard of living." Bush responded with Science: The Endless Frontier, a report that recommended creating a federal agency to support basic research. Roosevelt wrote back, "New frontiers of the mind are before us, and if they are pioneered with the same vision, boldness, and drive with which we have waged this war we can create a fuller and more fruitful employment and a fuller and more fruitful life." The proposed agency became the National Science Foundation.
