The Most Important Speeches In History Are Not Always Regarded As The Greatest, They Include Some Dire And Unheeded Warnings.

Five important moments, one temporarily heeded, two tragedies realized and profoundness of their words now appreciated, two terrible fates not fully appreciated yet but looming ominously near.

Eisenhower's Prophetic warning During His Farewell Address.

Without doubt the most important unheeded warning in history. Eisenhower left office a conflicted and troubled man. His accolades speak for themselves, but he was uniquely positioned as a decorated victorious General and Two Term President to understand the inner workings of the Military-Industrial Complex monster he had a hand in shaping.
No other warning would have spared as much death and misery as this if it had only been properly received.

I Am Prepared To Die.

Nelson Mandela's Rivonia Trial Speech was one example where the message did ultimately prevail but only after untold hardship by some.

"During my lifetime I have dedicated my life to this struggle of the African people. I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons will live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal for which I hope to live for and to see realised. But, My Lord, if it needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die."


JFK's Secret Societies Speech.
The last great American President gave this poignant and delicately revealing speech warning the deaf ears of the time of the elites that sought to orchestrate the way global geopolitics unfold. Its the line of liberty he would persue that ultimately cost him his life.

This is a far-reaching and prophetic speech, vastly underestimated, which pretty much exactly predicted the mess the world is in today. Given the scope and timing, a case could be made for this being the greatest speech ever given.

FDR's New Deal.

FDR Taking on big business. This is the SOTU Speech The United States Should be hearing!

I Have A Dream.

Martin Luther King's "I Have a dream" speech remains as stirring now as it was then. Truly iconic.

Scientific Consensus is that Consensus is overturned 100% of the time

Everything you know is wrong. There is a very good reason why science succeeds more often than politics does.  Unlike politics, It's not a consensus or a vote,  it's actually method.  The scientific method. Anyone who has read this blog before probably knows I'm a lifelong science junkie as well as someone who spends thousands of hours breaking down the the political and economic agendas behind the special interest groups that guide public policy.  In many ways I'm actually uniquely qualified to tie these angles together in ways not well understood by the overwhelming majority of people.  That actually includes scientists. Scientists are notoriously naive in the political and economic forces that drive the human world.

First and foremost,  what is this so called 'consensus' anyway.  You will be horrified to find out,  it's not specifically that global warming is man made.  It's simply that humans contribute to climate change in an unknowable way and to…

CO2 is not a pollutant, it is greening the earth!

Whatever your persuasion is on CO² and AGW, nobody disagrees on the tremendous benefit it provides plant life. Many of the past famine disasters and desertification has CO² decline listed as a contributor.

I feel I've already blown the notion that humans are the main cause of climate change out of the water. Or rather I've used the reasoning of others and put it together in a convenient outline. See my previous post above for starters.  However, I recognize that humans do increase CO² levels, no matter how tiny. Increases are likely to be very short lived because the earth has an effective feedback mechanism, but we can apparently get small increases, and it's been put forward on very poor science that this is a bad thing. That assertion hinges completely on bad models. More on that in the bottom most link.  Model's and the measurement sample dates are dubious at best.

Furthermore, the main increase in CO²  as…

You Don't Know What Capitalism Is So Stop Using The Word!

I am writing this for one purpose, to be able to post it every time the issue comes up in conversation to prevent myself from dying of boredom on a few key issues with label intellectuals, you know, the sort who drop labels for the singular purpose of demonstrating their talent at dodging real issues by posing as someone who knows the definition of a word.

When it comes right down to it, I personally think most economic and, for that matter, socio-economic systems across the entire capitalism/ socialism spectrum could work if corruption could just be reasonably controlled.  Many forget that Socialism still runs on the capitalism economics system and the finer points actually come down to policy and regulations. This is often missed.  That being said, I am fairly sure that many of the criticisms of communism for example are valid, and views that it does not work especially well because it tends to kill the inventiveness and passion of the human spirit do stand, but not for the reasons…
