Gems — 24 June 2012

More than fifty years ago, on April 27, 1961, John F. Kennedy gave a speech before the American Newspaper Publishers Association, in which he warned the press about the secret societies that are the real power in global affairs.

In a riveting speech that is as acute today as it was then, he asserted that “…we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence – on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. 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.”

He called upon the members of the Association: “I am asking your help in the tremendous task of alerting the American people, confident that with your help man will be what he was born to be – free and independent.”

Two-and-a-half years later he was assassinated and the jury is still out as to who was really behind it. One hopes this speech will go viral among the American media – they certainly should listen to it.

Osho, while speaking on Meritocracy, says,

And the government should start weeding out politicians and bringing in geniuses who would not come to politics on their own; they have to be invited.

That’s what Kennedy did in America. When he became president that was one of his ‘crimes’. He brought all the geniuses of the country in some way or other into the government. He invited them, he supported them.

The politicians of the country could not tolerate it, it was too much. Their whole profession was going into the hands of non-politicians. And certainly they prove better, because they know their subject, what they are doing.

The assassination of President Kennedy was a political conspiracy, for the simple reason that he was weeding out the politicians, out of their power positions, and bringing in people who were never known to have any political aspirations.”
