Posts Tagged ‘Gen Douglas MacArthur on our arms economy and war hysteria’
It’s a surprise to me to discover that the first quote was uttered by General Douglas MacAruthur. The second quote from JFK is familiar to most people and I hereby cop to having the same sentiments:
“It is part of the general pattern of misguided policy that our country is now geared to an arms economy which was bred in an artificually induced psychosis of war hysteria and nurtured upon an incessant propaganda of fear.” – General Douglas MacArthur, Speech, May 15, 1951
“…if by a liberal they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people – their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, their civil liberties…if that is what they mean by a “liberal” then I am proud to be a liberal. “ – John F.Kennedy
So am I.
Yet they’re still whipping things into a state of war hysteria and practicing ‘an incessant propaganda of fear’ to this day! And sadly for the economy and future of America, their tactics work.
Will the American people ever wake up to and resist how Washington works against our best interests?
