Eisenhower Denounces Military-Industrial Complex
A Two-Minute Excerpt From a 1961
Speech By the President of the United States
Carlos Cardoso Aveline
Dwight Eisenhower (1890-1969)
The 21st century transition towards a civilization of world peace needs a stern vigilance regarding the political lobby of arms’ industries.
The problem is not new.
On 17 January 1961, the 34th President of the United States - Dwight Eisenhower - made a severe alert to the nation about that.
One must take his warning into consideration, as tensions are artificially escalated. Islamic Terror spreads largely unchallenged, anti-Semitism becomes once again fashionable, nuclear proliferation is allowed to accelerate, and many a short-sighted politician tries to fabricate a Second Cold War with Russia.
Military conflict may be good for death-merchants, and peace is boring for arms-dealers, but human life is more important than private profits. There is no power greater than truth. Sooner or later, Justice prevails. The world deserves to live free from the danger which Mr. Dwight Eisenhower talks about. See Eisenhower’s warning in this video of 2 minutes and 30 seconds:
The above video was also published in the March 2014 edition of “The Aquarian Theosophist”.
On the role of the esoteric movement in the ethical awakening of mankind during the 21st century, see the book “The Fire and Light of Theosophical Literature”, by Carlos Cardoso Aveline.
Published in 2013 by The Aquarian Theosophist, the volume has 255 pages and can be obtained through Amazon Books.
