Reverend and Doctor Martin Luther King, Jr. quotes:

“the greatest purveyor of violence in the world today — my own government.”

“I agree with Dante, that the hottest places in hell are reserved for those who in a period of moral crisis maintain their neutrality”

“Don’t let anyone make you think that God chose America as his divine messianic force, to be a sort of policeman of the whole world.”

[“We must establish and maintain space superiority.”
-General Lance W. Lord, head of Space Command

Space superiority = the ability to fight from space, through space and in space.

“Now if the argument is whether or not the United States should be the hegemon is on the table, well, that’s a different argument. The fact is, the United States is the hegemon, and putting weapons in space will extend that period of hegemony into the foreseeable future.”

“A hegemonic power, a strong power, willing to use its police capacity–and this is a police force, a space cop type of idea–can make the global heavens an exploitable resource for all, whereas right now there is no guarantee even that if a corporation or a nation should go into space and find wealth there that it could keep it or have a reasonable share of keeping it.”

-Everett Dolman, professor at the Air Force School of Advanced Air and Space Studies at Maxwell Air Force Base in Alabama]

“It’s a man by the name of general Ky [Air Vice Marshal Nguyen Cao Ky] who fought with the French against his own people, and who said on one occasion that the greatest hero of his life is Hitler. This is who we are supporting in Vietnam today. Oh, our government and the press generally won’t tell us these things, but God told me to tell you this morning. The truth must be told.”
