    This is just unreal. On April 3, 1965 the great legendary commentator on ABC, Paul Harvey gave this speech.

    I want to be careful about copyright but still try to keep the part I cut and paste in context.
    Trust me it's worth the read and most definitely worth sharing with others.

    He starts off discussing the fact that he's the Devil aka Prince of Darkness and wanting to take over the world. His greatest desire as the Devil of course is to pick the finest apple from the tree, the USA.

    I'll put up some quotes from the speech but trust me, go to the link and read it in its entirety.

    " I would begin with a campaign of whispers. With the wisdom of a serpent, I would whisper to you as I whispered to Eve: “Do as you please.” “Do as you please.”
    To the young, I would whisper, “The Bible is a myth.”
    I would convince them that man created God instead of the other way around."


    Remember this is 1965.

    "I would caution them not to be extreme in religion, in patriotism, in moral conduct. And the old, I would teach to pray. I would teach them to say after me: “Our Father, which art in Washington” ."

    1965:eusa_clap: This speech is awesome.

    And one last snippet...the wrap up. Sounds to me like Paul Harvey had Satan and the redistribution of wealth down pat over 45 years ago.

    " If I were the devil, I would take from those who have and I would give to those who wanted, until I had killed the incentive of the ambitious.

    And then, my police state would force everybody back to work. Then, I could separate families, putting children in uniform, women in coal mines, and objectors in slave camps. In other words, if I were Satan, I’d just keep on doing what he’s doing."

    Paul Harvey, Good Day.

    I miss him on the radio. I loved his "the rest of the story".

    Not exactly a novel concept...

    Quotes : Man created God


    "I suggest that the anthropomorphic god-idea is not a harmless infirmity of human thought, but a very noxious fallacy, which is largely responsible for the calamities the world is at present enduring"
    (William Archer / 1667-1735 / Theology and War)

    "Man is, and always has been, a maker of gods. It has been the most serious and significant occupation of his sojourn in the world."
    (John Burroughs / 1837-1921 / American essayist)

    "It may be that our role on this planet is not to worship God, but to create him."
    (Arthur C. Clarke / born in 1917)

    "All Bibles are man-made."
    (Thomas Edison / 1847-1931)

    "Few nations have been so poor as to have but one god. Gods were made so easily, and the raw material cost so little, that generally the god market was fairly glutted and heaven crammed with these phantoms."
    (Robert Green Ingersoll / 1833-1899)

    "Man is certainly stark mad: he cannot make a worm, yet he will make gods by the dozen."
    (Michel de Montaigne / 1533-1592)

    "Which is it, is man one of God's blunders or is God one of man's?"
    (Friedrich Nietzsche / 1844-1900)

    "That fear first created the gods is perhaps as true as anything so brief could be on so great a subject."
    (George Santayana / 1863-1952 / The Life of Reason / 1905)

    "My atheism, like that of Spinoza, is true piety towards the universe and denies only gods fashioned by men in their own image to be servants of their human interests."
    (George Santayana / 1863-1952)

    If I were the Devil, I'd start a radio show where I'd tell stories, but I'd work the advertising on the show so that it would sound like part of the stories,

    so half the time people wouldn't know if they were hearing a story, or being sold something.:lol::lol::lol:

    With all due respect, I never put up his speech to be argumentative against any one else's beliefs.

    You must read the speech in its entirety to grasp its wonder. You have put up only one liners with no source for me.

    I put it up only for people to read and absorb what wonderous thoughts the author had at the time.

    To have had just one moment in time where your words are remembered forever must be the greatest legacy you can leave.

    I'm a huge addict to radio. My favorite and if you ever have the chance to listen to it is Gordon Sinclair's "The Americans". These are speeches that like I have in the OP stir your heart. Make it go pitty pat.

    Take your breath away moments where you begin to sob in the middle of it, because truth has just racked your body.

    From "The Americans" for those that don't know this most amazing moment in broadcast history, may I bring you Gordon Sinclair.....

    And mods don't touch this please. This is not copyrighted material and is posted in its entirety across the planet, 'kay?

    :eusa_angel:



    America: The Good Neighbor.

    Widespread but only partial news coverage was given recently to a remarkable editorial broadcast from Toronto by Gordon Sinclair, a Canadian television commentator. What follows is the full text of his trenchant remarks as printed in the Congressional Record:

    "This Canadian thinks it is time to speak up for the Americans as the most generous and possibly the least appreciated people on all the earth.

    Germany, Japan and, to a lesser extent, Britain and Italy were lifted out of the debris of war by the Americans who poured in billions of dollars and forgave other billions in debts. None of these countries is today paying even the interest on its remaining debts to the United States.

    When France was in danger of collapsing in 1956, it was the Americans who propped it up, and their reward was to be insulted and swindled on the streets of Paris. I was there. I saw it.

    When earthquakes hit distant cities, it is the United States that hurries in to help. This spring, 59 American communities were flattened by tornadoes. Nobody helped.

    The Marshall Plan and the Truman Policy pumped billions of dollars! into discouraged countries. Now newspapers in those countries are writing about the decadent, warmongering Americans.

    I'd like to see just one of those countries that is gloating over the erosion of the United States dollar build its own airplane. Does any other country in the world have a plane to equal the Boeing Jumbo Jet, the Lockheed Tri-Star, or the Douglas DC10? If so, why don't they fly them? Why do all the International lines except Russia fly American Planes?

    Why does no other land on earth even consider putting a man or woman on the moon? You talk about Japanese technocracy, and you get radios. You talk about German technocracy, and you get automobiles.

    You talk about American technocracy, and you find men on the moon -! not once, but several times - and safely home again.

    You talk about scandals, and the Americans put theirs right in the store window for everybody to look at. Even their draft-dodgers are not pursued and hounded. They are here on our streets, and most of them, unless they are breaking Canadian laws, are getting American dollars from ma and pa at home to spend here.

    When the railways of France, Germany and India were breaking down through age, it was the Americans who rebuilt them. When the Pennsylvania Railroad and the New York Central went broke, nobody loaned them an old caboose. Both are still broke.

    I can name you 5000 times when the Americans raced to the help of other people in trouble. Can you name me even one time when someone else raced to the Americans in trouble? I don't think there was outside help even during the San Francisco earthquake.

    Our neighbors have faced it alone, and I'm one Canadian who is damned tired of hearing them get kicked around. They will come out of this thing with their flag high. And when they do, they are entitled to thumb their nose at the lands that are gloating over their present troubles. I hope Canada is not one of those."

    Stand proud, America!


    Ahh Harvey and Sinclair. Voices from heaven.

    Oh yeah, Paul, religion will save us.

    That's really working out well, so far, that religion in politics thing.

    Morons.
