  • The Speech I Can’t Give

    A good friend of mine who worked at Goddard Space Center suggested I give a lecture there. 

    I eagerly wrote a speech about many of the themes you have read about here. 

    After I wrote the speech, I found out that the colloquia at the Center are not just lectures by leaders-in-their-field, but are about leadership itself. 

    The tone of the speech was to be like a college commencement address. 

    I didn’t fit in.

    What do I know about leadership? You know how I know I’m not a leader? because if I was a leader, I would look over my shoulder and see a lot of followers. If I was a leader, I would get my books published easily and be invited to give lectures. If I was a leader, the A.S.B.P. would have treated me respectfully. If I was a leader, I would be rich or have the patronage of a rich organization. What is the practical value of freedom of speech if poor people who read and think freely and wisely–so many that I know–have no means of being heard? Silence of the mind, the death of the intellect, is not a quiet affair; it is a daily babble. It is a commencement address.
