The principle part of this book is the broad application of democratic principles. "You have the American system!" exclaimed my Oxford educated professor, uncharacteristically grabbing me by the shoulders. That was his reaction sixty years ago to my theory of government. Imagine my shock when I received the application papers for citizenship only to discover that the Oath of Allegiance denied the American Democratic System by removing the individual's responsibility for what he does under orders. The individual conscience is paramount in democratic philosophy. The individual is fully responsible for what he does under orders. I don't believe that obeying orders justifies man's inhumanity to man. I have great difficulty with items which have been added to the Oath to the U.S. Constitution. I could have answered certain questions, but they were questions, which in my judgment, a democratic government had no right to ask. To answer such questions would, it seemed to me, concede the right to ask the questions. But the way I read it, I have to be prepared to give up both body and soul to become a U.S. citizen. " if the law requires it," without qualification or limitation implies no limitation although limitation is explicit in democratic philosophy and in the constitution which outlines the way to adhere to those principles. The Oath of Allegiance lists substantially the same contents without those additions I find objectionable and unconstitutional. Eventually I applied with the request that I be permitted to take the Oath just to the Constitution and not to the additions. I explained that for me the additions removed the safeguards of the Constitution, in effect contradicted the Constitution. And that to take an oath to what I perceived compromised my principles and conscience, could be done only with a mental reservation. To become an American Citizen I would have to deny the American system. What a catch 22! Although I have not the slightest hesitation in defending the U.S., my country, my children's and grandchildren's country I cannot give carte blanche to the government, allow any openings for laws that deny the restraints set by the constitution.

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER If you want to build a better future, you must believe in secrets. The great secret of our time is that there are still uncharted frontiers to explore and new inventions to create. In Zero to One, legendary entrepreneur and investor Peter Thiel shows how we can find singular ways to create those new things. Thiel begins with the contrarian premise that we live in an age of technological stagnation, even if we’re too distracted by shiny mobile devices to notice. Information technology has improved rapidly, but there is no reason why progress should be limited to computers or Silicon Valley. Progress can be achieved in any industry or area of business. It comes from the most important skill that every leader must master: learning to think for yourself. Doing what someone else already knows how to do takes the world from 1 to n, adding more of something familiar. But when you do something new, you go from 0 to 1. The next Bill Gates will not build an operating system. The next Larry Page or Sergey Brin won’t make a search engine. Tomorrow’s champions will not win by competing ruthlessly in today’s marketplace. They will escape competition altogether, because their businesses will be unique. Zero to One presents at once an optimistic view of the future of progress in America and a new way of thinking about innovation: it starts by learning to ask the questions that lead you to find value in unexpected places.

Why can some organizations innovate time and again, while most cannot? You might think the key to innovation is attracting exceptional creative talent. Or making the right investments. Or breaking down organizational silos. All of these things may help—but there’s only one way to ensure sustained innovation: you need to lead it—and with a special kind of leadership. Collective Genius shows you how. Preeminent leadership scholar Linda Hill, along with former Pixar tech wizard Greg Brandeau, MIT researcher Emily Truelove, and Being the Boss coauthor Kent Lineback, found among leaders a widely shared, and mistaken, assumption: that a “good” leader in all other respects would also be an effective leader of innovation. The truth is, leading innovation takes a distinctive kind of leadership, one that unleashes and harnesses the “collective genius” of the people in the organization. Using vivid stories of individual leaders at companies like Volkswagen, Google, eBay, and Pfizer, as well as nonprofits and international government agencies, the authors show how successful leaders of innovation don’t create a vision and try to make innovation happen themselves. Rather, they create and sustain a culture where innovation is allowed to happen again and again—an environment where people are both willing and able to do the hard work that innovative problem solving requires. Collective Genius will not only inspire you; it will give you the concrete, practical guidance you need to build innovation into the fabric of your business.

It remains an accessible blend of theory and practice rich with international examples and contributions.
