JFK, MLK, RFK, More Than 50 Years of Suppressed History

•, By Elizabeth Woodwort

First published by GR ten years ago on November 15, 2013 coinciding with the 50th anniversary of the assassination of John F. Kennedy, November 22, 1963). 

April 4, 2023 is the 55th Anniversary of Martin Luther King's Passing. (April 4, 1968)

June 6, 2023 is the 55th Anniversary of the Passing of Robert F. Kennedy (June 5, 1968)

Their Legacy will live forever.

In the last 50 years there have been two major threats to life on our planet.

The first, the nuclear arms race and its near disaster of 1962, was narrowly averted by President John F. Kennedy and his brother Robert Kennedy, who then set a course for peace. 

The second, the ticking climate bomb on its short "business as usual" fuse, has no solution in sight. (PART II of this essay forthcoming)

In both cases unseen forces have blocked a survival response to incalculable danger. We will examine these forces and suggest a way forward, modeled partially on action taken by JFK to avert nuclear war.

Mind is the Master power that moulds and makes,

And Man is Mind, and evermore he takes

The tool of Thought, and, shaping what he wills,

Brings forth a thousand joys, a thousand ills: —

He thinks in secret, and it comes to pass:

Environment is but his looking-glass.
