Martin Luther King Jr.... A Visionary as Well as a American Hero

Liberty -vs- Tyranny


Martin Luther King Jr.  (1929 - 1968)

Martin Luther King Jr., indeed a great man who believed not only in the right of all humans, every man and women, regardless of race or ethnicity to be treated with respect, dignity, and afforded the opportunity to reach the heights to which they aspired.

In honoring the memory of this great man and visionary Rational Nation USA brings to it's readership two his finest and defining speeches.





Further, in today's troubled and war torn realities it would serve us well to remember, and reflect deeply on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s words with respect to war and its inherent evil.



Perhaps it is just this aging patriot, but I see many similarities between the foolish arguments used by the establishment of the 1960's (the Vietnam War era) and those used today by what should be a generation who has learned from history and the mistakes of prior generations.

Were Martin Luther King Jr. with us today I suspect he would be marching with Rep. Ron Paul in opposition to the MIC and in argument of the inherent good that is present in humankind if only we look to it.

  1. Nice job, RN. I'm very impressed. I know you don't have to agree with every word he said to appreciate the value of his convictions. The speech against the war in Viet Nam was very powerful indeed. I quoted something similar on Sheria's post of last Monday, although a much shorter excerpt.

    Good for you. Keep an open mind.
