Censoring Dr. King

That's right, sports fans. My man Dr. King, Bono's hero and I'd imagine the hero of many here, was censored for preeching against millitarism and consumerism (lol--they thought you were a pinko for that then I guess, and I get the same thing now frankly). Though April 4 would be a good day to remember....

Here's a quote, and the whole speech.

I am convinced that if we are to get on the right side of the world revolution, we as a nation must undergo a radical revolution of values. We must rapidly begin the shift from a "thing-oriented" society to a "person-oriented" society. When machines and computers, profit motives and property rights are considered more important than people, the giant triplets of racism, materialism, and militarism are incapable of being conquered.


Happy reading!
