This week saw the 50th anniversary of Rev. Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech.
You have been the veterans of creative suffering. Continue to work with the faith that unearned suffering is redemptive... Let freedom ring.- MLK - August 28, 1963
President Obama plans to unleash untold unearned suffering in Syria and Iran, after doing the same in Libya.
"We are involved in a war on Asian soil, which if not checked and stopped may poison the very soul of our nation....When a nation becomes obsessed with the guns of war it loses its social perspective...Violence is so self defeating." - MLK - May 8, 1967
His Presidency oversaw increased intrusions into citizen freedom, especially the right to a fair trial by peers and freedom from unreasonable searches and seizures. With the strike of a pen and no oversight or accountability these freedoms can be taken by the America's Unitary Executive.
I envision Rev. Martin Luther King, the recipient of intrusive CIA spying in his day, as opposing Obama's wrapping himself in King's mantle. Obama staked out that law students should have the freedom to finish law school in two years instead of three. Are they glad the President rallied support for this oppressed group?
