    Its funny how many times leaders have told us what might be a good direction for the country and the people still allow them to conduct business the way they want

    @britishjohn04
    Implying man is compleatly incapable of perpetuating the seeds of his own blessings…
    Atheists and theists need to stop hating for no real reason, were both faiths, cant proove jack or squat in terms of our relative stances…
    We perceive nature as maleable and unconscious.
    You perceive it as maleable through nature’s consciousness[IE god]. Not much of a big difference…

    @millamulisha …because man can’t truly progress without reverence for God and his generous blessings.

    Honest presidents admit that the Pentagon is beyond their control. Perhaps, that’s why Eisenhower warned the American public of the danger posed by the Military-Industrial Complex…

    This made a lot of conspiracy theorists get to work finding a new “global economic control conspiracy”

    @millamulisha because the CCCP had a reputation of having limited freedom of religion, and that would be another reason why people could (and would) disagreed with them. always look for problems in systems that you don’t want your country to adopt, not very nice but it worked.

    @klumberg Not necessarily, we burned a lot of money in the last ten years, and for what? a few drops of oil? No. People pursue it for their own purposes, and quiet often their interests intertwine with what they believe their countries’ interests are, and with any luck they stumble upon a “just cause” to make them feel better about their actions.

    Ike was a good and honorable man, an old school millitary man. Duty. Honor.Country. When he became president he was out flanked by less then honorable men. He was a product of the late 19th century. Honest and open.He was not from a ruling class family. The Dark Shadows of post WW2 America surrounded him and most likely lied to him. Im sure Ike knew he was in deep shit and was surrounded by Govt. sharks, and the best he could do would be stay alive and be a thorn in the MICs ass. RIP Ike.

    @breaks0 Which actions do you consider to have been “bad”?

    Bad, if you consider that he did nothing to openly stop McCarthy, authorizing U-2 flights over Russia, and allowing the CIA to destroy Mossadeq’s progressive Iran, and plan the invasion of Castro’s Cuba. Good points. But it is interesting that Ike was so worried about the strength of the military-industrial complex……

    Its treible what this nation has come to. We have become EXACTLY what we “supposedy” stand against. The saddest part of all, is that the “ruling class” who control everything have such tight grip on our lives/future that I dont see any possible way of stopping it.

    likewise. these are important speeches for our time. what is warned about here is what has become reality now. we are slaves people. think about it carefully. think about money debt and the power it has. the power that we, the people, have given it. it can be done differently, only we have to want and allow it.

If knew I would jump feet first into whatever i could do to help stop these Bastards.. they are raping the world and its people and they’ve been doing it for over 50 years.. why hasn’t anyone done anything about this? Why do we as people continue to stay divided and mum on the very subjects that would change our entire way of life for the better? the biggest weapon the MIC has against the people? media and pop culture.

    Sadly, the US government has been bought out by corporations. Ike warned us, and we didn’t listen.

    You are correct.. our problem is that it is waaay to late to stop them. Ike warned us & told JFK.. in depth, of the monster jerking the strings. Once the military-industry-cia complex murdered JFK & RFK. JFK couldn’t stop them… even though he had quite a bit of power & help. Alas.. it was no match.

    actually I think quite a few get a real grip on his speech, like when dwight goes “give nothing for granted, be aware, participate”… the people OWNING us actually take that into account when they perfected the little machine that makes us all into zombies and let them f*** us

    If the military is so bad, then why are their uniforms so hot?

    THIS is why support for the troops is so foolish. Not that there is anything wrong with supporting the troops, but NEVER at the expense of the wellbeing of the nation as a whole.
