In this video he refers to the excerpt below from Lincoln’s message to Congress.
An excerpt from President Abraham Lincoln’s Annual Message to Congress:
“The dogmas of the quiet past, are inadequate to the stormy present. The occasion is piled high with difficulty, and we must rise — with the occasion. As our case is new, so we must think anew, and act anew. We must disenthrall ourselves, and then we shall save our country.”
The dogmas of the quiet past have the elite controlling our political and education systems which are inadequate to the stormy present. America guarantees freedom and justice for all and as Americans, and we must rise with the occasion to disenthrall ourselves from the corporate slavery that politically maintains a class system in America and standardizes and dehumanizes our children.
We must think and act anew, concentrating on discovering, developing, and directing the gifts and talents of all of our children so that they will become knowledgeable, respectful leaders with integrity, who will speak with the voice of the people and not be purchased with the profits of the elite.
We must grow leaders who will recognize that our children’s gifts and talents are more valuable than the profits derived from hedge fund speculation.
When we save our children we will save our country!
