we observe Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday, let's not forgot that
he was not just a civil rights leader; he was an antiwar leader.
In a speech he gave in New York in 1967, a speech that led to a
lot of upset from some erstwhile supporters, he stated:
it should be incandescently clear
that no one who has any concern for the integrity and life of America
today can ignore the present war. If America's soul becomes totally
poisoned, part of the autopsy must read: Vietnam. It can never be
saved so long as it destroys the deepest hopes of men the world
over. So it is that those of us who are yet determined that America
will be are are led down the path of protest and dissent,
working for the health of our land."
at antiwar.com think it's still "incandescently clear."
