Mario Savio: An American Hero.


The Odious Machine

"There is a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart, that you can't take part; you can't even passively take part, and you've got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you've got to make it stop. And you've got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it, that unless you're free, the machine will be prevented from working at all!"

Mario Savio
Sproul Hall Steps
University of California, Berkeley
December 3, 1964
*****

Now then, here is an American who made an emotional, and historic speech, just a few decades ago.
He was and is, an inspiration.
A proper gentleman, and a real hero.
The FBI harried him, and one might believe that perhaps such stresses were instrumental in his death at the age of just 53, in a California hospital from heart disease.

(Edit/addition, Friday AM.).)

Here is another of his "short & subtle* speeches, reading it here, on a stormy friday morning, allow me to quote... (Or click to see full transcript, it is unique, humble and an inspiration.

"...Fortified by the peasant wisdom of my great-grandfather, perhaps, I never could become a thorough-going Marxist. But a Socialist of sorts, a gentle Socialist, I became, and remain..."

This a line from a speech he made at his sons` graduation in 1988.

I wouldn't doubt if the FBI was the death of him. He was right though and I think we are going to have to act as he said or nothing positive is going to get done. What a friggen future Bush has set up for us!

Salvo was ahead of his time, but was far enough out in the fringes of American politics at that time that the military-industrial complex (as I interpret 'the machine') were not overly threatened by him. There were, however three men in the 1960s that they did consider a major threat: JFK, RFK and MLK. The Reich dealt with those threats.

I agree with you on that. That is why I say there is no way in hell Obama will be allowed in. He will be assassinated.

Put your body on the line to stop the machine?

Well, what if they convince the world that the machine's operation is more valuable then your body's worth?!!

Hi Naj,
The kings and presidents have always used patriotism and money to encourage their troops.
However, for the americans and the english, the money is running out, and patriotism looses its` attractive shine at funerals.

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I earn money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my blog to get additional info.
