" As we reduce in size we must put greater emphasis on education.  Countries which lose the ability to think lose the ability to plan and evolve.  Armies that maintain their intellectual flame can adapt to new technologies even though they may be unable to acquire them.  The increasingly complex and networked world in which we will operate for the rest of our lifetimes demands ever more educated and flexible people. "

General Sir David Richards, Annual RUSI Chief of the Defence Staff Lecture 2011
