I am seeking to faithfully represent the experiences of the 35th president of the United States on the subject of technology. As he faced the consumer age so we now face the Internet of Things - 1961 to 1963 was the dawn of the third revolution, today (2016 - 2018) we are at the dawn of the 4th Industrial Revolution. The same issues are arising and the answers remain the same.
Let’s just go off track and ask a question - who was the 1st president to support women’s rights and say “in writing” he would advocate ERA? Yup, JFK. He was way ahead of his time, and with technology too. Who invented consumer law - the same answer, JFK.
Many of the answers that America is looking for today, we can learn from. What are top say 10 issues facing Government in the US today:-
Relations with China (JFK said this problem would arise)
Relations with Russia (JFK brought peace, the cold war started again in 2016)
Huge Regulatory Burden (Regulating Social media, privacy, competition net neutrality etc) JFK shows us how to manage this issue in part
Immigration (JFK wrote a book on it and Johnson again legislated his reforms)
Medicare (JFK introduced it, Johnson legislated his reforms)
A Technology race alongside an arms race (JFK predicted it)
Leadership (Gallup poll survey says #1 issue facing the US - JFK was a good example of a political leader)
Moral decline & constitutional crisis (JFK shows us how to address this too)
Terrorism (JFK wrestled with this problem too - with communism at home and Hoover’s witch hunt)
Climate change (big subject for JFK)
So, we need to educate and that is what I am. Website - www.JFKDataRace.com
