Martin Luther King Jr. - 'The Three Evils Of Society' (1967, audio only)
We now live in an age when Martin Luther King Jr. has a Federal Holiday which is used to afford a Monday off of work, and for retail outlets for cars and furniture to exploit his name and memory to hawk their whatever it is. I just want to remind whomsoever reads this that towards the end of his life, MLK focused his attention against capitalism, economic inequality, systemic racism beyond U.S. Apartheid, White Supremacist Counter-Revolution and the Universal War Machine of Amerikkka vs. Everyone Else. He was a person of thorny personal and ideological legacy whose actual words are still very much worth listening to and are disregarded at collective peril.
