The keynotes by Captain Porter (first name, Wayne) discuss the very popular article he co-wrote with Mark Mykleby entitled 'A National Strategic Narrative.' This article questions the current and traditional policies and initiatives implemented by the United States in the realm of foreign policy. Porter believes that the government needs to readjust the amount of money being spent on overt militarization and consider investing more in areas such as education, sustainability, healthcare and infrastructure.
The keynotes by Captain Porter encourage audiences to support governments that understand the value of planning long-term as opposed to short-term. Effective strategies can't be built by a group of people that isn't looking to sustain or subsist in the future.
