Whispers from the Arrow of Time: Essays from an Evolving Mind on How to Think about National Security in the Information Age

Wayne Michael Hall

This anthology of essays written by author retired US Army Brigadier General Wayne Michael Hall involves critical thinking and planning in the new age-the Information Age-in relation to the Arrow of Time as it moves from past to present to future. The new age, the 21stcentury, proves to be quite different from the past. Change and turbulence prove intimidating and challenging in new ways from past cultural and societal changes.

Unfortunately, society and its military element of national power face even greater challenges than the rest of society in coping with how to think in this new context, as, sadly, the military's thinking capabilities continue to decline. Part of the reason for this decline lies in expecting machines to do one's thinking. Similarly, people accept data via social media as factual when this data is often meaningless. Alternatives to this endemic intellectual decline appear throughout these essays.
