#791 – Dick Bernard: Revisiting a Speech of President John F. Kennedy October 22, 1963

Last night I was returning from a meeting and happened across a portion of a speech President John F. Kennedy had given on this date, 50 years ago, one month before his death.
The 24 minute speech, to the National Academy of Science, is archived on YouTube, accessible here.
This is worth a reflective listen. Any pre-listening editorial comments by me are superfluous.
Your comments are solicited.

    Times,indeed,have changed. Today this speech would be seen as giving away American freedom and liberty to international control by those on the right that see government and authority as contrary to freedom. Today hording and austerity are cherished values that protect us from existential fear. Hence, the denial of Climate Science that shouts about the ramifications of global warming.
