The world is now ruled by 'oligarchic collectivism' (coined by George Orwell), a vast business conspiracy centered in the United States.
Our government was designed to be ruled by 'them'; their coup d'etat of November 22, 1963, removed the greatest threat to their despotic plans.
As a result, a vast transfer of wealth occurred in my lifetime, resulting in the dominant brick and stone landscape of our modern era dominated by 'laundromats' and 'cocaine towers' (to borrow the descriptive nouns of author John le Carre (The Tailor of Panama) strategically located throughout the 'free world'.
Those of you who were not alive when JFK was murdered have no way of grasping the change that occurred in America. It marked the end of trust in government, a theme that Ronald Reagan later chose as part of his performance.
President Kennedy had begun to realize the threat posed by the CIA as the front organization for what President Eisenhower had labeled the 'military-industrial complex' (the MIC) in his farewell address to the nation on January 17, 1961.
John Kennedy was a warrior and from a wealthy, politically prominent family. He was slow to discover the profundity of President Eisenhower's words and mistakes were made.
JFK campaigned using a phony 'missile gap' with the Soviet Union argument, appearing to want to out-Republican Eisenhower. Eisenhower was furious at Kennedy for making these accusations, stating that the military power of the United States was awesome. Get this: General of the Army and outgoing President Dwight D Eisenhower was assuring the nation of the awe-inspiring power of the United States military in 1961. That was 53 years ago!
Kennedy's experiences with CIA and their various plots (such as Operation Northwood's, which was postponed until September 11, 2001) had a profound effect on him and his brother, Bobbie. In my opinion, that is when they began to see the light as to why the MIC was pushing for a greater involvement in Vietnam. It caused him to declare, "I want to splinter the CIA in a thousand pieces and scatter it to the winds" and hint that he may pull the American 'advisors' out of Vietnam.
Three months later a 'lone gunman' (identified as Lee Harvey Oswald, who worked for the CIA and had Russian connections) murdered JFK, the press assured us.
President Johnson's assignment was to cool things down while preparing for the potentially profitable war in Vietnam. Thus he began work on anti-poverty and civil-rights issues, biding time until 1974 when he concocted the Gulf of Tonkin incident in August of 1964, claiming that Vietnamese gun boats had attack the USS Maddox, a destroyer. It worked. Ka-ching. Wall Street was positioned to cash in.
The conflict in Vietnam escalated. There were body counts and heroes. There was collateral damage. War profits were being sorted out. The military discovered they would have to greatly increase their budgets in order to keep us safe.
President Nixon decided to speed up the assured victory by extending the bombing to neighboring Laos and Cambodia, which sheltered a whole lot of the bad guys, we were told.
Meanwhile, the nation was becoming increasingly restless over when exactly we would see the 'light at the end of tunnel.' The command of Special Forces, transferred to the CIA, created an opportunity for the President (perhaps including a few oligarchs) to create a private military force. The Movers and Shakers were on their way to Glory.
Things worsened dramatically for the American forces and the home front was becoming a major concern to the political class, as flag-draped caskets accompanied more and more service men and women home.
