World-wide Revolution

This blog is dedicated to the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. where he speaks truth to power on April 4, 1967 at a meeting of Clergy and Laaity Concerned at Riverside Church in New York City; this is a documented treatise that is not well known and describes Jericho road.

“I am convinced that if we are to get on the right side of the world revolution, we as a nation must undergo a radical revolution of values. We must rapidly begin the shift from a “thing orientated” society to a “person orientated” society. When machines and computers, profit motives and property rights are considered more important than people, the giant triplets of racism, materialism, and militarism are incapable of being conquered.”

“A true revolution of values will soon cause us to question the fairness and justice of many of our past and present policies. On the one hand we are called to play the good Samaritan on life’s roadside; but that will be only an initial act. One day we must come to see that the whole Jericho road must be transformed so that men and women will not be constantly beaten and robbed as they make their journey on life’s highway. True compassion is more than flinging a coin to a beggar; it is not haphazard and superficial.”
