The Future of Freedom Foundation was pleased to host one of the most fascinating, important, and relevant conferences in our 27-year history.
Entitled “The National Security State and JFK,” the conference was held on Saturday, June 3, 2017, at the Dulles Airport Marriott in Northern Virginia.
Jeffrey Sachs holds the title of University Professor, the highest rank of professorship at Columbia University. He is a special adviser to former UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon on the Millennium Development Goals.
Sachs has authored three New York Times bestsellers: The End of Poverty (2005), Common Wealth (2008), and The Price of Civilization (2011). His most recent book is The Age of Sustainable Development (2015).
At the age of 28, he became a full professor with tenure at Harvard. Sachs was named one of Time magazine’s “100 Most Influential People in the World” in 2004 and 2005. In 2013, he authored a book on President John F. Kennedy’s remarkable Peace Speech at American University, entitled To Move the World: JFK’s Quest for Peace.

    Brian Eno Masterpieces remasterd @ half speed.
    Zijn tijd ver vooruit en: 'An album that really is about as essential as they come.' Listen to samples

  2. De timeline van Brian Eno's twitter is op z'n minst de moeite van een regelmatig bezoek waard vanwege de interessante links die voorbijkomen, zoals deze bijv: Download a free art book from a selection of 500+ publications at the MOMA
    Met meer dan 1 parel waaronder onder meer ook deze publicatie met o.m. prachtige vroeg chinese beeldhouwwerken.

  3. On Topic
    Deze zelfingenomen dwaas Jeffrey Sachs zegt hier o.a. het volgende (vanaf 11.30):
    "I'm a lover of JFK's quest for peace......I fell in love with president Kennedy's speach on peace that he gave in june 1963...and I took that speach of an example of a kind of leadership that showed how to inspire people a better world" ..........

    Terwijl een ieder een beetje intelligent mens het volgende weet:
    JFK was one of the worst,violent presidents.He initiated the use of chemical weapons in Vietnam etc.Millions died afterwards and still suffer an die from the results of that......Millions of people were put in concentration camps there etc. He organised a massiv terrorist campaign in Cuba, killing ten thousands of Cuban civilians. (vrij naar Noam Chomsky)

    Meest absurde is dat deze malloot Sachs aan 't eind autoritair gaat scheeuwen om zijn bewondering voor de speach van de massamoordenaar Kennedy kracht bij te zetten.Met zinnen als "That was Kennedy's style of leadership"
    Toppunt van waanzin:(scheeuwend als een dominee)" And then Kenndey start to praise the Sovjet Union at the height of the cold war,months after the Cuban Missile crisis. MAGNIFICANT!....magnificant!" ..........."unimaginable,yet he did it"
    Deze Jeffrey Sachs is compleet gek.
