A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense
than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual death… …Our only
hope today lies in our ability to recapture the revolutionary spirit and go out
into a sometimes hostile world declaring eternal hostility to poverty, racism,
and militarism. –Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. “Beyond Vietnam,” April 4,
