Beyond Vietnam: A Time to Break Silence
Speech delivered by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., on April 4, 1967, at a meeting of Clergy and Laity Concerned at Riverside Church in New York City

“”A time comes when silence is betrayal.” That time has come for us in relation to Vietnam.
The truth of these words is beyond doubt but the mission to which they call us is a most difficult one. Even when pressed by the demands of inner truth, men do not easily assume the task of opposing their government’s policy, especially in time of war. Nor does the human spirit move without great difficulty against all the apathy of conformist thought within one’s own bosom and in the surrounding world. Moreover when the issues at hand seem as perplexed as they often do in the case of this dreadful conflict we are always on the verge of being mesmerized by uncertainty; but we must move on.”

i am listening to his speech about vietnam. “speaking as a citizen of the world” he talks about peace and non violence as the way. there is no way to peace, peace is the way.
now people are dredging up “newsletters” to keep ron paul from gaining anymore ground. his support has beeen steadily growing. he is bringing an important message to the presidential race. it is strikingly similar to what dr. king had to say. dr paul’s peers claim he must be reading the enemy propaganda. yet, not only is knowing your enemy half the battle, it is also necessary for compassion. ron paul is the candidate for peace and people are putting up a fight only because he threatens a power structure. yet they want you to believe he is threatening peace.
the accusations of racism are not only untrue, but it seeks to drive a wedge between the great men and women who are asking for peace. to drive a wedge between men like dr king and dr paul. divide and conquer. all i can say is, don’t buy into it. because by doing so you are only serving to protect that which is robbing the people of their livelihoods both economic and militarily. as JFK said, “those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent action inevitable.”

just like dr king said it’s all about reordering our priorities.
wise restraint and calm reason, he says are demanded in these times.
