Greg:  indeed.

Dan: I'll spare you the emoticon.  What you say about JFK & the UN rings true; he in fact thought it important enough to address the UN twice concerning Congo in order to keep the UN forces there.  Those (like the John Birchers) who yell the loudest about the UN are all too ready to use the UN as cover when it suits them. As for Galbraith, when I was a freshman in high school I read The Affluent Society, which colored my economic thinking profoundly.

Corporate Fascism.

Yes, corporate fascism. Every president has seemed to bend over backward to give the Big Boys the things they want. They also have done provocative actions that promote terror - that familiar mainstay of politics as we know it today. The Cold War was the terrorism of yesterday and now we have the Muslim extremists to worry about. That or the gay people who want to marry.

Terror keeps the populous anxious, and anxiety leads to a lot of fun things like selling your freedoms. Yes, to those same Big Boys of Business.

Kennedy, however, was a bit different as a President. He said Let's defuse the Cold War, let's find a way to live in peace. He took on the steel industry as well as his own joint chiefs of staff. He created the Peace Corps, the Alliance for Progress, the Presidents Council of Physical Fitness for schools (I even won one of his badges when in school).

He embodied HOPE in a world where most of our presidents in the past two centuries have only given us FEAR.

That was his greatness.
