Secret Societies: Comment By A Conspiracy Theorist?

Below are some quotes from the speech made by US President John F Kennedy in 1961 to the US Newspaper Publishers’ Association so – called Secret Socities speech. The entire speech has been transcribed HERE for people who wish to read everything he had to say on that day. What was Kennedy referring to? If we presented the opinion of most contributors to this blog we would be called ‘conspiracy theorists’ so we invite you to make up your own minds.

Over to JFK:

* “The very word “secrecy” is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and to secret proceedings”

* “Today no war has been declared — and however fierce the struggle may be, it may never be declared in the traditional fashion. Our way of life is under attack”

* “We are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence — on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day”

* “It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations”

Why The Kennedy Assassination Still Matters

The implications of the JFK assassination remain large to this day, a fact lost on Noam Chomsky when he stated that “Who knows? Who cares? Why does it matter?… The evidence against [a high-level conspiracy to kill JFK] is overwhelming” — and thus revealed himself to be either unintentionally narrow-minded or an intentional gatekeeper of truth.

Hollywood actor Bruce Willis summed it much better than Chomsky when he declared: “They still haven’t caught the guy that killed Kennedy… I’ll get killed for saying this, but I’m pretty sure those guys are still in power, in some form. The entire government of the United States was co-opted”. Indeed – it was co-opted, and still is.
