EMF/RF Abraham, Martin, and John, Didn’t you love the things they stood for?

As Martin Luther King Day approaches, Americans of a certain age will remember the 1968 song “Abraham Martin, and John” written by Dick Holler and recorded by Dion.

A disc jockey later combined the songs “Abraham, Martin, and John” and “What the World Needs Now.”

In August of 2013,Vid Brats posted,

“A commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the historic March On Washington on August 28, 1963. I based this video on the late Tom Clay’s 1971 remix of “What the World Needs Now is Love/Abraham, Martin and John”.

“”What the World Needs Now is Love” (1965) was composed by Burt Bacharach (featured in this video at a White House performance) and his longtime lyricist Hal David. “Abraham, Martin and John” is a 1968 song written by Dick Holler and first recorded by Dion.

Disc jockey Tom Clay was working at radio station KGBS in Los Angeles, California, when he created the remix single “What the World Needs Now is Love/Abraham, Martin and John”, a surprise hit record in 1971. While his was a social commentary on war and racism, my updated version of his remix is intended solely to commemorate the anniversary of the March On Washington.”

Democrats Would Do Well To Ponder How Much Their Party Has Essentially Changed

In 2018, Dave Armstrong on the website Patheos, “Biblical Evidence of Catholicism” addressed shifts in orientation of the Democratic party in his article, ”Robert F. Kennedy & How Democrats Used to Be.”

“Last night I finished watching the four-part Netflix documentary, Bobby Kennedy for President. It so happened that it was the early hours of the 6th of June: exactly fifty years after he was assassinated (basically for being a supporter of Israel). I remember that sad day very well (I was almost ten at the time).”

The Democrat Party is vastly different today, compared to fifty years ago: during the nearly three-month period after Robert Kennedy announced his candidacy for President, on 16 March 1968. Just fifteen days later, President Lyndon Johnson shocked the political world with his declaration that he would not seek the nomination.

It’s surprising to realize that a Catholic distributist conservative like myself, who has voted Republican for President since 1980, could watch such a show and not disagree with a single policy position or even statement that RFK made, the entire time.

In those days, the Democrats were not yet devoted to hard left social and economic positions, anti-Americanism, anti-traditionalism, radical secularism, the sexual revolution, relentless race-baiting, extreme caricature of Republican opponents, or revolutionary unisexism. That more or less changed with the candidacy of George McGovern in 1972 and really cranked up during President Reagan’s two terms.

RFK actually did care about the “little guy”: as was evident throughout the documentary. He didn’t just “talk the talk.” He visited the poorest parts of Mississippi and Appalachia, the inner city ghettos, the migrant workers in California, and as far as I can tell, truly had a sincere, deep compassion for the less fortunate.

Democrats have ludicrously claimed exclusive possession of such compassion and social conscience ever since, charging that conservatives lack it. But things are very different now. For example, RFK in the film, at one point was talking about subsidiarity: a concept very dear to Catholic social teaching and to Chestertonian distributists like myself.

Wikipedia provides a good brief definition of it: “an organizing principle that matters ought to be handled by the smallest, lowest or least centralized competent authority. Political decisions should be taken at a local level if possible, rather than by a central authority.” Kennedy was shown appealing to the principle in his efforts to change the atrocious conditions in the Bedford–Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn (he was by this time a Senator from New York).” [ ]

Democrats would do well to ponder how much their party has essentially changed.

“An Organizing Principle That Matters Ought To Be Handled By The Smallest, Lowest Or Least Centralized Competent Authority”

The question of whether or not decisions are best handled locally, or by a central authority, is one of the parameters that has shifted the focus of the Democratic party towards authoritarianism.

As painful as it is to recognize, unsafe, profound abuses of power and authority have manifested, and are continuing for example, in the health care arena, and under the guise of ‘sustainability’ and climate concern, under Democratic leadership.    

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Letter to Liberals

In August of 2022, Kennedy’s son Robert F. Kennedy Jr. penned  ‘A Letter to Liberals’: Why I Wrote It and Why I Hope You’ll Read It” published by the Children’s Health Defense about his free book.

“In what was arguably one of the most important speeches in American history, President Dwight D. Eisenhower — a Republican — warned our citizenry against the type of misplaced faith in federal scientific bureaucrats we are witnessing today.

Eisenhower said:

“The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. … We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. …

“In this revolution, research has become central; it also becomes more formalized, complex, and costly. A steadily increasing share is conducted for, by, or at the direction of, the Federal government. … The prospect of domination of the nation’s scholars by Federal employment, project allocations, and the power of money is ever present — and is gravely to be regarded. …

“We must … be alert to the … danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific-technological elite.”

It is my hope that “A Letter to Liberals” will remind all Americans that blind faith in authority is a feature of religion and autocracy — not of science or democracy.

To that end, this letter is a challenge to my fellow liberals to reexamine the scientific assertions upon which rest the oppressive policies that have savaged the presumptions of classical liberalism and the U.S. Constitution. – SOURCE

Although his letter focuses on another issue, the points are pertinent to the wireless debacle, a topic subject to widespread censorship, also featured by Children’s Health Defense,

MA4SafeTechnology: Canton, MA

A scenario unfolding in Canton, MA impacting local home-owners was shared this week by Cece Doucette of MA4SafeTechnology.

During the pandemic, the tower that was installed and activated in Pittsfield MA proximal to homes predictably resulted in the kinds of health harm that researchers have associated with exposures to non-ionizing radiation.

Across the United States and around the world, individuals are waking up to the news that telecommunications infrastructure is being imposed in yards, neighborhoods, and on school grounds. The telecom industry has preyed upon financially challenged land owners, including churches and gun clubs (Wayland MA), to secure hosts for its infrastructure, pitting neighbors against neighborhoods.

As many social commentators have noted, the rage that has been associated with the far-right cannot be separated from the abuses of power imposed by the left.

In the United States, the regulations now governing the wireless industry were written in 1996, when everyone was dancing the Macarena, and Nintendo’s N64 was released. This is a grave dereliction of duty on the part of the Federal Govt.

Entrenched political parties on both the right and the left are marching in lockstep with the wireless industry to allow for a regulatory gap that does not protect human health, the environment, human rights, property rights, or the evolution of science.

In addition, “sustainability” groups have played an enormous role in promoting technology applications that are, in fact, causing tremendous harm to the planet and exploiting other peoples, including children working in mines, as recently reported by Joe Rogan,

Like the monopoles appearing in predominantly ethnic New York City Neighborhoods, these are both examples of institutionalized exploitation and racism.

Whether we recognize it yet or not, history will note that cellphone and wireless users who address these abuses of human rights and environmental justice by the telecom/wireless/surveillance/control grid honor the legacies of Abraham, Martin, John, and Bobby.

In 1963, “Peter, Paul, and Mary” performed “If I Had a Hammer” at the Civil Rights March on Washington. They discussed it here:

“Let us think independently.”

This is about freedom and human dignity, all over this land.  

Dr. King reminded us:

Somewhere I read of the freedom of speech. Somewhere I read of the freedom of the press. Somewhere I read that the greatness of America is the right to protest for right.” 

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.” 

“If we are not careful, our colleges will produce a group of close-minded, unscientific, illogical propagandists, consumed with immoral acts. Be careful, ‘brethren!’ Be careful, teachers!”  

“We know through painful experience that freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor, it must be demanded by the oppressed.”  

“The time is always right to do what is right.”
