I ask ATS members to listen to this eerily prophetic speech by Martin Luther King.

Originally delivered on 4th April 1967 (a year before his assassination) Martin Luther King speaks out about the Vietnam War, but what he said is as relevent today as it was forty four years ago.

I consider this to be one of the greatest speeches and one that should be heard not just by all Americans, but by everyone in general.

The youtube video itself is actually an excerpt from a great documentary called War Made Easy. I have included the trailer below as well, if people haven't seen the film, it's well worth watching.

You can read the full transcript of the speech here:

American Rhetoric

Does anybody else have any erriely prescient speeches that they want to share?

Prophetic words indeed. The U.S. military budget continues to increase, and we continue use "war" as a way to solve our disputes in different parts of the world. Recalling the devastating impact the war in Vietnam had on human lives and atrocities, we continue down the same destructive and violent path.
