Profile of Martin Luther King Jr.

I remember Martin Luther King Jr. dared to speak out against the US policy on Vietnam!

He claimed his own government created the Vietnam conflict itself and that the US was:

“But why did he say this?” I had to ask myself.

Years later, I realize it is only to fuel the great military-industrial complex so that the billions of dollars of war machinery can be sold. Because of course, in capitalism a market is required for your products to sell.

In other words, there has to be a war going on someplace in the world, for the US economy to profit from. PEACE is not profitable in the eyes of Big Business.

So I have profound respect for Martin Luther King Jr. though he wasn’t perfect. Today he would say to all of us, the same thing he said back then:

And so I’m sending this out today for the political situation in the US. Because a CLEAR CONSCIENCE is a godly characteristic we should all develop. And we should do it quickly.

There’s so much violence and hatred. When is it enough? Why doesn’t God come down and save us from the misery that millions are experiencing? This question was hurled at me during my “X” Zone Radio interview with Rob McConnell.
