From the Introduction:
A wise man once said “the moral arc of history is long, but it bends towards justice”.
Today, only five decades after this wise man was cut down by an assassin’s bullet, his name has suffered the fate of many who stood up against a powerful force of evil in obedience to their conscience, and slanderous revisions of history have painted America’s collective memory of King with fraudulent colors.
Now in 2019, America is going through an existential crisis as an effect of the cover up of the murders of its great leaders during the 1960s: First John F. Kennedy, then Malcolm X, followed by Martin Luther King Jr., and his friend and leading presidential candidate Bobby Kennedy in 1968. Rather than demand justice then, the American population and leadership alike chose the easy road of “going along to get along”. The effect of this decision to take the path where conscience cannot follow, resulted in America’s losing its own sense of moral purpose and mission as a nation founded in liberty and truth in 1776. The ensuing half century saw America slide into a caricature of itself as it increasingly became the living embodiment of that British Empire which its founding was designed to overthrow.
Today, the Belt and Road Initiative, launched by China in 2013 has re-awoken that spirit of long term thinking, development, cooperation and justice which MLK, and the other martyrs of the 1960s had devoted their lives to advancing in as much as it revived that spirit upon which America was founded.
Will the latent identity of goodness slumbering in the heart of America’s collective zeitgeist be re-awoken to this new paradigm emerging under the leadership of Donald Trump who has found himself as the unlikely leader of America struggling against the Deep State machine that took control of the nation in 1968 or will fools remain fools and allow history to repeat itself yet again?
In the ensuing pages, we will address this question by exposing the heroic struggles of these slandered heroes and document how the enemies of America covered up their murders. With the cleansing light of truth, may we heal the wounds of the past and prepare ourselves to move into the a bright future with optimism and genuine hope.
