I spent some time yesterday listening to speechs and less formal talks by Martin Luther King played on KFPK radio yesterday (MLK Day in the US).

January 19th, 2015 from about 10:00 am to 6:00 pm.

He was a brilliant scholar, was knowledgeable about theology, history, psychology and many other relevant domains of knowlege. What struck me the most about his oratory was that he never put anyone down, he never blamed anyone - but did talk about the history, he was always positive and kind. He didn't seek to offend but to teach, inform and inspire.

I miss this kind of 'public' discourse. What passes for public speech now is filled with character assassination and diversion. Tactics to move the public away from facts and consequences. There is no listening - everyone just talks at the same time with the winner being most rude and loud.

There are a few public figures that still listen and attend to facts, processes, and consequences but they don't 'entertain' the feeble minded. And that is what the US has become a nation of feeble minded.
