"And so, my fellow americans: ask not what your country can do for you - ask what you can do for your country. My fellow citizens of the world: ask not what America will do for you, but what together we can do for the freedom of man." - John F. Kennedy
Americans are generally familiar with the first part of the above quote, but the second part is equally important. Unfortunately, Kennedy's question remains unanswered to this day, as most of the world seems more involved in naked self-interest than the freedom of mankind.
