While writing my three newsletters of the week this morning, I went through my usual routine of finding one good quote per newsletter. This morning, it was the quotes of the great John f. Kennedy, murdered because he was about to expose the real workings behind the scenes of American government. I have chosen a few of his quotes to elaborate upon and apply to our lives as individuals of integrity.

He said that “the goal of education is the advancement of knowledge and the dissemination of truth.” He said, “a child miseducated is a child lost.” He also said, “our progress as a nation can be no swifter than our progress in education. The human mind is our fundamental resource.” One must consider this when reviewing the pitiful state of public education in the US; according to this article and many others, of comparable countries, the United States ranks near the bottom. It’s common knowledge. This is by design.

President Kennedy said, “The ignorance of one voter in a democracy impairs the security of all.” Why? Well, he went on, “The great enemy of the truth is very often not the lie, deliberate, contrived and dishonest, but the myth, persistent, persuasive and unrealistic.” Only by carefully dumbing down and distracting the American people over the years could those behind the scenes get them to a level where they would vote – twice – for their own destruction by Obama. As another great man, Clint Eastwood, famously put it, “President Obama Is The Greatest Hoax Ever Perpetrated On The American People.”

The myth became flesh and I don’t believe they’re going to get him out of the White House. Such is the danger of uninformed sheeple, of those who are easily led by the nose to the slaughter.

As individuals, it is incumbent upon us to educate ourselves and plan our choices and our lives accordingly. I tell people that these days, anyone who hasn’t read Ayn Rand’s “Atlas Shrugged” and “The Fountainhead,” George Orwell’s “1984,” Martin Jacques’ “When China Rules the World,” and other eye-opening and mind-expanding books that will definitely not be required reading in schools and will almost certainly be banned in the United States before long, is not properly equipped to evaluate his circumstances accurately and plan appropriately for his future and that of his family.

The Nazi propagandist, Joseph Goebbels, said, “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension the truth becomes the greatest enemy of the State.”

So While we cannot change what is happening at high levels of government without risking retribution and imprisonment (ask Dinesh d’Souza about that), we can definitely plan our own individual lives, and that is our option.
