JFK on censorship, secret societies and so on
open government and so on - this is only a short while before his assassination.
im not an american, but i have to admit this speech is inspiring even for me. apparently, good words from a good heart definitely reaches good people, from wherever they are.
ps : i noticed that the last 1/4 part of the video may be about conspiracies and stuff. you may just ignore that part and listen to jfk's speech. i dont know much video editing and couldnt take that part off.

Very interesting. I really wish we had more presidents like that.The U.S economy is in the toilet, the media and government brainwashes the people so they do not think for themselves. Sometimes, some conspiracies are true. It is a moving speech.

The speech is often cited by others.
This part is interesting:
I have no intention of establishing a new Office of War Information to govern the flow of news. I am not suggesting any new forms of censorship or any new types of security classifications. I have no easy answer to the dilemma that I have posed, and would not seek to impose it if I had one. But I am asking the members of the newspaper profession and the industry in this country to reexamine their own responsibilities, to consider the degree and the nature of the present danger, and to heed the duty of self-restraint which that danger imposes upon us all.
Every newspaper now asks itself, with respect to every story: "Is it news?" All I suggest is that you add the question: "Is it in the interest of the national security?" And I hope that every group in America--unions and businessmen and public officials at every level-- will ask the same question of their endeavors, and subject their actions to the same exacting tests.
I have never been quite sure what to fully make of this speech!
