Former Representative Gingrich, who was speaker of the House from 1995-1998, taught a political science class at the University of New Hampshire-Manchester. He discussed five major changes that need to be met for the next generation to be successful: the threat to national security from the irreconcilable wing of Islam; preserving individual liberty endowed by God; national security and identity; rise of China and India; and the depletion of Social Security funds. He also talked about the failure of the local, state, and federal governments in handling the crisis in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina and the need for government reform. Following his remarks, he responded to questions and comments from students, including about the reform of the United Nations.
