As Americas place in the world is redefined by new actors, globalization and a complex array of terrorist activities, these elements conspire to create a new paradigm which threatens and undermines our way of life, our values and principles and our basic constitutional principles in order to prevent what can be best described as the death of our nation in slow motion.
NPS provides an all encompassing approach that traverses all spheres of society, religion, culture, politics, technology, science etc and provides an emergent approach for 21st century challenges in a changing world.
