Acceptance of the New York Liberal Party Nomination
September 14, 1960
What do our opponents mean when they apply to us the label “Liberal?” If by “Liberal” they mean, as they want people to believe, someone who is soft in his policies abroad, who is against local government, and who is unconcerned with the taxpayer’s dollar, then the record of this party and its members demonstrate that we are not that kind of “Liberal.” But if by a “Liberal” they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people — their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties — someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a “Liberal,” then I’m proud to say I’m a “Liberal.”
But first, I would like to say what I understand the word “Liberal” to mean and explain in the process why I consider myself to be a “Liberal,” and what it means in the presidential election of 1960.
In short, having set forth my view — I hope for all time — two nights ago in Houston, on the proper relationship between church and state, I want to take the opportunity to set forth my views on the proper relationship between the state and the citizen. This is my political credo:
I believe in human dignity as the source of national purpose, in human liberty as the source of national action, in the human heart as the source of national compassion, and in the human mind as the source of our invention and our ideas. It is, I believe, the faith in our fellow citizens as individuals and as people that lies at the heart of the liberal faith. For liberalism is not so much a party creed or set of fixed platform promises as it is an attitude of mind and heart, a faith in man’s ability through the experiences of his reason and judgment to increase for himself and his fellow men the amount of justice and freedom and brotherhood which all human life deserves.
I believe also in the United States of America, in the promise that it contains and has contained throughout our history of producing a society so abundant and creative and so free and responsible that it cannot only fulfill the aspirations of its citizens, but serve equally well as a beacon for all mankind. I do not believe in a superstate. I see no magic in tax dollars which are sent to Washington and then returned. I abhor the waste and incompetence of large-scale federal bureaucracies in this administration as well as in others. I do not favor state compulsion when voluntary individual effort can do the job and do it well. But I believe in a government which acts, which exercises its full powers and full responsibilities. Government is an art and a precious obligation; and when it has a job to do, I believe it should do it. And this requires not only great ends but that we propose concrete means of achieving them.
Our responsibility is not discharged by announcement of virtuous ends. Our responsibility is to achieve these objectives with social invention, with political skill, and executive vigor. I believe for these reasons that liberalism is our best and only hope in the world today. For the liberal society is a free society, and it is at the same time and for that reason a strong society. Its strength is drawn from the will of free people committed to great ends and peacefully striving to meet them. Only liberalism, in short, can repair our national power, restore our national purpose, and liberate our national energies. And the only basic issue in the 1960 campaign is whether our government will fall in a conservative rut and die there, or whether we will move ahead in the liberal spirit of daring, of breaking new ground, of doing in our generation what Woodrow Wilson and Franklin Roosevelt and Harry Truman and Adlai Stevenson did in their time of influence and responsibility.
Our liberalism has its roots in our diverse origins. Most of us are descended from that segment of the American population which was once called an immigrant minority. Today, along with our children and grandchildren, we do not feel minor. We feel proud of our origins and we are not second to any group in our sense of national purpose. For many years New York represented the new frontier to all those who came from the ends of the earth to find new opportunity and new freedom, generations of men and women who fled from the despotism of the czars, the horrors of the Nazis, the tyranny of hunger, who came here to the new frontier in the State of New York. These men and women, a living cross section of American history, indeed, a cross section of the entire world’s history of pain and hope, made of this city not only a new world of opportunity, but a new world of the spirit as well.
Tonight we salute Governor and Senator Herbert Lehman as a symbol of that spirit, and as a reminder that the fight for full constitutional rights for all Americans is a fight that must be carried on in 1961.
Many of these same immigrant families produced the pioneers and builders of the American labor movement. They are the men who sweated in our shops, who struggled to create a union, and who were driven by longing for education for their children and for the children’s development. They went to night schools; they built their own future, their union’s future, and their country’s future, brick by brick, block by block, neighborhood by neighborhood, and now in their children’s time, suburb by suburb.
Tonight we salute George Meany as a symbol of that struggle and as a reminder that the fight to eliminate poverty and human exploitation is a fight that goes on in our day. But in 1960 the cause of liberalism cannot content itself with carrying on the fight for human justice and economic liberalism here at home. For here and around the world the fear of war hangs over us every morning and every night. It lies, expressed or silent, in the minds of every American. We cannot banish it by repeating that we are economically first or that we are militarily first, for saying so doesn’t make it so. More will be needed than goodwill missions or talking back to Soviet politicians or increasing the tempo of the arms race. More will be needed than good intentions, for we know where that paving leads.
In Winston Churchill’s words, “We cannot escape our dangers by recoiling from them. We dare not pretend such dangers do not exist.”
And tonight we salute Adlai Stevenson as an eloquent spokesman for the effort to achieve an intelligent foreign policy. Our opponents would like the people to believe that in a time of danger it would be hazardous to change the administration that has brought us to this time of danger. I think it would be hazardous not to change. I think it would be hazardous to continue four more years of stagnation and indifference here at home and abroad, of starving the underpinnings of our national power, including not only our defense but our image abroad as a friend.
This is an important election — in many ways as important as any this century — and I think that the Democratic Party and the Liberal Party here in New York, and those who believe in progress all over the United States, should be associated with us in this great effort. The reason that Woodrow Wilson and Franklin Roosevelt and Harry Truman and Adlai Stevenson had influence abroad, and the United States in their time had it, was because they moved this country here at home, because they stood for something here in the United States, for expanding the benefits of our society to our own people, and the people around the world looked to us as a symbol of hope.
I think it is our task to re-create the same atmosphere in our own time. Our national elections have often proved to be the turning point in the course of our country. I am proposing that 1960 be another turning point in the history of the great Republic.
Some pundits are saying it’s 1928 all over again. I say it’s 1932 all over again. I say this is the great opportunity that we will have in our time to move our people and this country and the people of the free world beyond the new frontiers of the 1960s.
Thanks to PBS.org for reminding us of the Greatness our country should be aspiring, too. Open your minds and your hearts and let us change our world together, one issue at a time.
Heraclitus of Ephesus (c. 535 – c. 475 BCE) was a pre-Socratic Greek philosopher, a native of the Greek city Ephesus, Ionia, on the coast of Asia Minor. He was of distinguished parentage. Little is known about his early life and education, but he regarded himself as self-taught and a pioneer of wisdom. From the lonely life he led, and still more from the paradoxical nature of his philosophy and his stress upon the needless unconsciousness of humankind, he was called “The Obscure” and the “Weeping Philosopher”.Heraclitus is famous for his insistence on ever-present change in the universe, as stated in the famous saying, “No man ever steps in the same river twice” (see panta rhei, below). He believed in the unity of opposites, stating that “the path up and down are one and the same”, all existing entities being characterized by pairs of contrary properties. His cryptic utterance that “all entities come to be in accordance with this Logos” (literally, “word”, “reason”, or “account”) has been the subject of numerous interpretations.“Good character is not formed in a week or a month. It is created little by little, day by day. Protracted and patient effort is needed to develop good character.”“Nothing endures but change.”“Time is a game played beautifully by children.”“The best people renounce all for one goal, the eternal fame of mortals; but most people stuff themselves like cattle.”“Those who love wisdom must investigate many things”“No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it’s not the same river and he’s not the same man.”“Allow yourself to think only those thoughts that match your principles and can bear the bright light of day. Day by day, your choices, your thoughts, your actions fashion the person you become. Your integrity determines your destiny.”“To be even minded is the greatest virtue. Wisdom is to speak the truth and act in keeping with its nature.”“We are most nearly ourselves when we achieve the seriousness of the child at play.”“Thinking is a sacred disease and sight is deceptive.”“Much learning does not teach understanding.”“Man’s character is his fate.”“Abundance of knowledge does not teach men to be wise.”“Character is destiny”.“Opposition brings concord. Out of discord comes the fairest harmony”.

I don’t want to go to a business that has open carry laws. Just as much as they have gotten smoking bans for “the benefit” of ALL. So should they have the same courtesy to those of us who choose NOT to be around them. I don’t want them in my life, keep them in yours. I have as many rights being a non-carrying person, than those who want to carry. Both points have merits and we SHOULD be adult enough to discuss BOTH sides. I support others freedoms, but there SHOULD be a compromise, for others of humanity that choose to do without guns. (Can you imagine the torture some may go through being around strangers with guns, especially if they have PTSD, mental illness, or have lost someone in a violent crime, as well as other instances? What about those individuals no one has even DISCUSSED????) My heart goes out to them . . . . Something HAS to be changed in our conversations. How do You feel about the issue???

Written by Christina Sarich, Natural Society, June 17, 2014 – http://naturalsociety.com/successfully-overturning-feds-hemp-ban/Growing hemp without a federal permit has been banned since the 1970s, but regulations and restrictions on the sale of Cannabis sativa as a drug began as early as 1619. It is currently classified as a controlled substance on Schedule I, just like marijuana and heroin, even though you couldn’t get high off of hemp if you smoked a truckload of it. Hemp cultivation is currently only allowed in pilot studies in a few states as part of the latest federal farm bill, but its widespread cultivation in still illegal. Why?The Michigan House overwhelmingly passed a bill which allows industrial hemp research, and Kentucky got their seeds back from a Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) seizure which took place when it was accepting delivery from Italy for pilot studies planned throughout the state with over two dozen different Universities participating in cultivating strains for commercial and industrial use.Furthermore, the South Carolina House gave final approval to a bill that authorizes the cultivation and production of industrial hemp within the state, effectively nullifying the unconstitutional federal ban. Tennessee also has a bill up for review, (HB 1392), which would allow hemp cultivation in the state. It has already passed through a House subcommittee vote.Twelve states currently have laws allowing hemp production via the farm bill allowances – California, Colorado, Indiana, Kentucky, Maine, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oregon, Utah, Vermont, and West Virginia — according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.Read: What You Should Know About the Hemp AmendmentThe Many Uses of HempSo why has hemp been banned all this time? It is simply a threat to oil companies, tobacco companies, pharmaceutical companies, alcohol companies, and many chemical corporations. Some have likened the nation-wide allowance of hemp and marijuana cultivation as being equivalent to an industrial atomic bomb. The plant is so useful, it could wipe out entire industries.Hemp can be used for so many things, including:1. Clothing and textiles – Hemp has been utilized since 8000 BC. It is an incredibly strong fiber which grows quickly and needs less water and no pesticides. George Washington and Thomas Jefferson grew hemp, but this is often glossed over by modern-day government. Hemp paper could also replace our dependency on trees, and counteract clear-cutting which is eliminating our forests faster than we can replace them.2. Hemp can replace toxic plastics that are currently made from petroleum and contain numerous carcinogenic ingredients. Hemp bottles, for example, would be 100% non-toxic and 100% biodegradable, as well as recyclable.3. Hemp oil and hemp seed have tremendous use as both a food source and as a medicinal supplement; also as a form of fuel – Hemp oil can also be used in soaps, shampoos, lotions, and other cosmetics without adding toxic chemicals. It can moisturize the skin, be used as a cooking oil, and even as a biodiesel fuel. Some say that Henry Ford and the inventor of the diesel engine, Rudolf Diesel, never intended to use oil as fuel, but actually hemp. You can bet the oil companies have made sure that hasn’t happened.4. Hemp provides great building materials – Companies in the Netherlands and Ireland are doing incredible things with hemp. There is a wonderful video that explains how to utilize hempcrete, a sustainable building alternative to concrete.In much the same manner that oil companies have blocked solar and wind power, Monsanto and Dow have blocked organic farming and independent studies proving GMOs are toxic. Industry special interests have kept hemp from Americans – but no longer. We’re overturning the federal ban one state at a time.Other Popular Stories:Limiting DEA’s Reach: House Votes on Bills Allowing States to Grow Hemp W/O InterferenceKentucky Sues DEA to Free 250 Lbs of Impounded Hemp Seeds: WinFederal Customs Stops 250 Pound Legal Hemp Seed Shipment from Italy Due to Government OverreachWhy the U.S. Should Legalize Industrial HempWhat You Should Know About the Hemp Amendment, Even if You Don’t Use MarijuanaFarmers Begin Planting Hemp Under New Colorado Hemp LegalizationRead more: http://naturalsociety.com/successfully-overturning-feds-hemp-ban/
First off, a VT article, by Petr Lvov, entitled, “Energy Wars in Europe“, might be a read some of those into the “energy geopolitics” might like.Second off, I say, “COME ON… give me a break!!!!”“‘Energy’ has nothing to do with politics, or oil, or gas, or coal, or drilling, or shale-ing (fracking), or ANY of that.” Burning “crap” which makes more “crap” and a tiny amount of energy and puts money in the banks of the very few is absolute BS. And I cringe when I hear any discussions about the “world energy situation”, and they automatically-like-drones start talking about oil reserves, coal deposits, natural gas, and even biofuels. That paradigm is over.Energy just is. And the means of transmuting energy from one form to another, with minimal disruption and/or interruption to the planet, are here… NOW. Solar, wind, QEG, cold fusion, and all the free energy devices that are out there, or soon to be.This Archimedes Liam F1 Urban Wind Turbine (and a mini one soon to be) is just one item. But I enjoyed reading about it. And maybe you will too. Read the rest at the link below . . . .

This march may well have been another one of those “lightning strikes“. It’s clear to me, that these GMO “giants” are hearing (and fearing) the will of the people.
It is clear that we have just witnessed the largest single worldwide protest against a company and their products. What is also clear is the major public disgust for anything bearing the words ‘GMO.’ Monsanto’s only refuge lies in massively funded mouthpieces in the forms of news clips and certain public figures, combined with a legal stranglehold on scientific research and medical inquiries. Yet in the age of information, their propaganda is laughable. Meanwhile the townspeople gather, having replaced their torches and pitchforks with signs and banners. We see this time the battle being fought from a place of higher consciousness. Our weapons of choice are the devastating methods of non-compliance, civil disobedience and free enterprise. It appears while the smoke is still clearing from what may be the final March Against Monsanto, momentum favors the people.
Tipping points are historically difficult to pinpoint or predict. They often manifest in the form of some event or consciousness action that ignites the minds of the public in a “now I can see” moment. During that exact second, and no sooner, a mass movement locks into a single idea that once cemented in stone, will never die. We are at such a point. The once obscured battle lines in the sand have now been illuminated with neon signs, doused with gasoline and set ablaze in our collective DNA. Into the future we march knowing only one thing clearly, genetically modified food will not be a part of it.
Years of brave activism and mobilized populations of unhappy mothers, disenfranchised farmers and educated consumers have brought us to this point. Surging forward comes the real work with instant rewards. Led by the recent examples of Mike Adam’s Forensic Food Lab and the continuous work of the Food Babe’s army going mainstream, it is clear that companies fear our voice and will instantly comply to the people’s wishes. How do we keep the heat on Monsanto? The company’s actions have shown us that their plan will move forward at all costs. So it is up to us to take the reigns and destroy their market share by voting with our dollars.
The Battle Plan
You money is your megaphone, your soapbox and your most important vote. This is a fact cemented in the pages of history’s empty political promises and arrogant corporate attitudes. We have always been taught throughout life that change would require a struggle. Yet, regaining your right to be healthy, eat healthy and live absent from the constant assault of weaponizied food is perhaps the most energizing ‘struggle’ you could engage in. Plus it’s a real community builder!
Know Your Farmer
Most independent farmers these days struggle to make a living unless the are subsidized by Monsanto, Dow, et al. That is why supporting those farmers that choose to ‘go it alone’ and use organic methods and non-gm seed is now vital. Learn who those individuals/families are and support them. Now is the time. Evey dollar in their pocket is one taken directly from the ‘GMO machine.’
Grow Your Own
This is the best option and truly gives a win-win. By growing your own you will knowwhere your food is coming from, that it’s organic, non-gmo and free. All are luxuries that are slipping through the hands of everyone on this planet. For the non-gardeners, gather neighbors and utilize the monocropping technique. This is accomplished by having each participant grow one crop. You can see in a neighborhood of ten participants there would be greater variety and more yield than any one individual could do alone. In addition, you only have to specialize in learning to grow and harvest one type of plant.
Keep The Social Media Heat
We have won the hearts and minds of the people. While plowing through this tipping point, it’s important to keep circulating information via all social media platforms. When petitions become large enough, the right people listen. Since our wishes have continually fallen upon the deaf, unempathetic ears of Monsanto and the man who calls himself president, it’s time to start focusing on smaller targets. Individual companies and suppliers can be effected. Subway, Whole Foods, McDonald’s, Jell-O etc have all recently witnessed this first hand. Pressure put on them via social media, petitions and emails to remove GMO in large numbers will serve to disrupt profit margins, take over board meetings and steer internal policy. In a beautiful twist of fate, those companies then join our sounding board pointed at Monsanto et al. Do you think Monsanto could ignore scores of large corporations terminating business with it because they find themselves no longer profitable from a simple social media campaign or collective movement to boycott GMO’s? Game over!

Do you notice or even feel frustrated because the supplements, medicines, diets, and modalities that seem to work for other people don’t work for you? Do you do what most would consider “all the right things” for your health and spirit and still feel that you are not functioning optimally? Do your energies, moods, and immune system feel like they need a boost even when you take extra time for “self-care?”
If you answered “yes” to the previous questions, there is a very good chance that you are part of the 1% of the population that is genetically of higher frequency. People of higher frequency tend to be described as “hypersensitive,” empathic, intuitive, creative, sometimes perfectionistic, and “light workers,”(wonderfully!) complex. Despite finding that other people are drawn to them, higher frequency individuals often feel alone in this world because they comprise so little of the population. However, they continue to move forward with their lives in a unique, heart-centered way. They live almost strategically in different parts of the globe as “light workers,” here to carry out their important mission or “Cosmic Call to Action,” which is to help our species and planet survive and thrive as a more consciously awakened world.
As a result, higher frequency people usually share many of the following attributes during this human experience:
1. A desire to find, confirm, or capture the essence of their true spiritual “home,” partner, family, and/or community.
2. A feeling that entities or angels are around them. They may even see or hear those entities on occasion.
3. A feeling that they aren’t achieving the success, relationships, and happiness they desire—despite having outstanding skills, capacities, and intelligence.
Changes in moods, emotions, and energy levels4. Changes in moods, emotions, and energy levels that appear to reflect the people or planet around them, as much if not more than their own condition.
5. Moments of feeling more “awakened” or conscious, but finding those times short-lived or unsustainable in 3D daily life.
6. Vivid dreams, and even moving, speaking, or acting out while asleep.
7. Periods of intense “shedding” of relationships, responsibilities, or priorities.
8. A feeling that time is moving much faster or even “getting lost” during regular activities.
9. Enhanced awareness of synchronicities and believing that there are no “coincidences” or “accidents.”
If you are of higher frequency, you likely also share a number of the following beliefs, perspectives, and ideologies:
1. “Service to Others” is your mantra or motto, which helps dictate the decisions that you make and all that you are and do. You know that what you do to and for others will affect you and your loved ones sooner or later—because we are all connected by frequencies, energy, our planet, and karma.
2. You see our earth and the human experience as a smaller part of a bigger picture. You feel almost like we humans are the experiment, playground, or “school” for spirits, entities, or forces from other dimensions, including some of your own soul’s energy source.
3. You understand that it usually takes dire situations to open people’s minds. You so want to be genuine in your interactions with others in your daily life, but feel more like you have to be a metaphysical “Clark Kent” and keep your Superman thoughts and talents in your back pocket. You find that it’s not until you come to the rescue of others in dire straits that they can look past your more spiritual cape and approaches. They are finally more open and just grateful to be helped.
4. You believe that happiness may or may not be the goal of this incarnation, but that living a life that is consistent with your purpose will produce all of the fulfillment you could ever want. It’s not about imitating what others call a “successful life.” It’s about feeling like you are on your OWN best path to your destiny.
5. You believe that your destiny is set and is great, but that free will and frequency can and will change the timing, ease, and efficiency of fulfilling that destiny. Consequently, you look to strengthen your frequencies and awareness level more than most.
6. You follow your heart, recognizing what science has finally proven. The heart senses and reacts to an event before it ever happens and even before the brain can process it. The heart really knows best, and first.
You believe that your destiny is set and is great,7. You don’t like that money is the focus and basis of our current world. You prefer to see people for how they are and what they feel, and not for what they have or whom they know. You prefer to exchange services and talents rather than money. For you, sharing your art, time, and expertise tends to reflect more of what’s in the heart than any other currency ever could.
8. You love and honor our planet and the natural universe. You feel the pains physically and emotionally when Mother Earth is ailing or rumbling. You may also feel the pull or mental and physical disruption during events like the moon’s cycles, solar flares, planetary alignment, etc. It sickens you that humans have prioritized greed rather than sustainability and kindness to the living things around us.
9. You recognize that each person has a different part in our global community. Regardless of rank, role, or training, each person is valued and crucial to the greater picture. The student is as important to the teacher as the teacher is to the student, as are the construction crews that build their school and the maintenance crews that keep it beautiful.
If the qualities and tendencies mentioned above resonate with you, then you probably have lots of experiences being and/or surrounded by a higher frequency person. It may not come as a surprise that–because of all of the energies that higher frequency people take in and take on from the world around them–they are quite prone to: food and environmental allergies; thyroid issues and adrenal fatigue; inflammation leading to digestive and/or joint issues; depression, addictions, or extreme highs and lows in mood; and intense relationships to sexual activity, body image, and/or exercise. Most higher frequency individuals feel the need to regroup or refresh by being alone and away from the energies of other people; by spending time in water or nature; by engaging in sports or physical activity; and/or by getting lost in music, dance, or other forms of expressive art—all to help rid themselves of the frequencies they take in, as well as to help rebalance their own energy systems.
While being a super-charged human has its challenges, lessons, and contrasts, you contain the Divine fabric, energies, and soul that represent the next steps for our human species. Because 3D life as a higher frequency person is complicated, it is neither helpful nor expected for you to live in perpetual bliss, nor to isolate instead of participate in this world. Any discomfort and confusion you experience pave the way for your sincerity and ingenuity; your resilience inspires others; and your tenacity is the hope for our future. Most importantly, by living a life that resonates with you, you move others to transform in positive and profound ways too. Although you may not always receive the applause, recognition, or gratitude that you deserve from others, as with most pioneers, your trials, tribulations, and triumphs are pivotal, and will be appreciated for generations to come.
