There was an inflection point in American (and world) history, and it began with the assassination of John F. Kennedy. For those whose lives have transgressed that period, if you take the time to notice, that change should be palpable. Younger members of society should take the time to educate themselves as to what kind of man he was. All should at least be familiar with his admonition, “Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country.”
It has been a long standing supposition that the catalyst for JFK’s assassination was that he was attempting to reign in the control of the money supply in the United States; transferring it from the Federal Reserve to the United States Treasury. Some may ask, “What’s the difference? From one government agency to another?” Therein rests the failure of most Americans (and maybe global citizens) to educate themselves and understand that all central banks (The Federal Reserve in the United States) are privately owned. Through boom and bust cycles the Federal Reserve has slowly confiscated the wealth of the citizens of the United States, like waves along the shoreline washing away sand. No one notices until your once beautiful beach house is submerged in water (a metaphor for debt). Since its inception in 1913 the value of the dollar has been reduced to zero. Inflation is the mechanism by which the oligarchs who own the Central Banks steal any wealth accumulated by generations, and slowly acquire power over the globe. Many feel that we are living in the end days.
Just as JFK implored the citizens of the US to be self-sufficient and strong individuals, Martin Luther King was the same kind of man for the African American community. Robin Williams once said, “Time is the best teacher, but it kills all of its pupils.” We must be able to employ hindsight to examine the true nature of world events. In 1964, the Civil Rights Act was passed at the urging of then President Lyndon Johnson. Prior to that (in 1963) MLK gave what most consider his greatest speech when he uttered the words, “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” These are truly inspirational words by which we all should live.
Both of these great leaders embraced a doctrine by which all men should be treated equally and given the opportunity to succeed (or fail) on their own. It’s all too coincidental that both men were assassinated at a time when the United States undertook an unprecedented expansion of oppressive entitlement programs that have impoverished generations of Americans. Rather than think for themselves the politicians and community leaders who peddle these programs as being progressive evoke the words of these men to somehow gain recognition for themselves. That realization, in and of itself, should make all who take the time to understand the true value lies in historical figures, not those who are elected today. If either of these men were to miraculously come back to life in 2015, both would be embarrassed at the nation we’ve become.
