Somthing Kennedy Said

“The very word secrecy is repugnant in a free and open society. And we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, the secret oaths, and secret proceedings. We are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covet means for expanding its fear of influence. On infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of election, on intimidation instead of free choice. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific, and political operations. Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried, not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no secret is revealed. The Athenian lawmaker Solon decreed ‘it is a crime for any citizen to shrink from controversy’. I am asking your help in the tremendous task of informing and alerting the American people. Confident that with your help, man will be what he was born to be, free and independent.”

– JFK

– JFK may have thought he was talking about the Communists and their methods. But I think we can view his words in quite a different light these days.

– thx to Lisa G. for this quote.
