The 1960s - the subversive current continues
If somebody doesn't bring an end to this suicidal thrust that we see in the world today none of us are going to be around because somebody's going to make the mistake through our senseless blundering, with the dropping of a nuclear bomb somewhere, and then another one's going to drop, and don't let anybody fool you, this can happen within a matter of seconds....But this is were we have drifted, and we are drifting there because nations are caught up with the drum major instinct, 'I must be first. I must be supreme. Our nation must rule the world!' And I am sad to say that the nation in which we live is the supreme culprit. And I'm going to continue to say it to America, because I love this country too much to see the drift that it has taken. God didn't call America to do what she's doing in the world now. God didn't call America to engage in a senseless, unjust war as the war in Vietnam! And we are criminals in that war, we have committed more war crimes almost than any nation in the world, and I'm going to continue to say it! And we won't stop it because of our pride and our arrogance as a nation, but God has a way of putting nations in their place! The God that I worship has a way of saying 'Don't play with me!'
If we are to go forward, we must go back and rediscover those precious values -- that all reality hinges on moral foundations and that all reality has spiritual control.
Martin Luther King, Jr. 1929-1968, Baptist civil-rights leader in the US
