Courage is the virtue that President Kennedy most admired. He sought out those people who had demonstrated in some way, whether it was on a battlefield, or a baseball diamond, in a speech, or fighting for a cause, that they had courage, that they would stand up, that they could be counted on. …President Kennedy was fond of quoting Dante that ‘the hottest places in Hell are reserved for those who, in a time of great crisis, maintain their neutrality.’ …Thomas Carlyle wrote: ‘The courage we desire and prize is not the courage to die decently but to live manfully.’ …Lord Tweedsmuir, one of the President's favorite authors wrote in his autobiography: ‘Public life is the crown of a career, and to young men it is the worthiest ambition. Politics is still the greatest and most honorable adventure.’ It has been fashionable in many places to look down on politics, on those in Government. President Kennedy, I think, changed that and altered the public conception of Government. He certainly did for those who participated. But, however we feel about politics, the arena of Government is where the decisions will be made affecting not only all our destinies, but also the future of our children born and unborn.

The changes were subtler this time, but just as deadly. Senator Joe McCarthy hid much of the takeover by the military behind the attacks on the military, but the military encroachment apparently permanent. The military power grab was the real key behind the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. A struggle, which is already lost and is confirmed by the long list of strange deaths which have been recorded in The Midlothian Mirror, in ‘Forgive My Grief,’ Vol’s I and II and in this book...
