Apparently we're not ready for truth!

Gandhi advocated the 'good' of what is pure evil; separation of humans into hereditary castes (slavery).

"I am one of those who do not consider caste to be a harmful institution. In its origin, caste was a wholesome custom and promoted national well-being."Baba Saheb Ambedkar belonged to dalit community (considered as untouchable). When neither Congress nor Gandhi would do anything significant to rectify untouchability, he intensified his attacks on Gandhi and his Congress government. “This Gandhi age is the dark age of India” , he opined. The caste system is horrifically regressive and primitive horror that is the antithesis of social development.
Lincoln fought the bloodiest Civil War in history against states that had every right to leave the Union. Lincoln's argument boiled down to "What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder." (Matthew 19:16 KJV)
Lincoln was not motivated to free slaves. The Emancipation Proclamation came in the third year of the war, when public support in the North for the horror and bloodshed was waning. Lincoln declared slaves emancipated only as a strategic ploy to prolong Civil War and the Emancipation Proclamation took pains not to free any slaves already under Union control; only slaves in rebel states not under the warlord Lincoln's control were declared 'freed' by Lincoln. It's rather puerile to free slaves that aren't in your control and refuse to free the slaves that are.

JFK’s Lunatic Priorities During the Cuban Missile Crisis
Reading the transcripts of Kennedy’s meetings with his advisers is an object lesson in the pernicious effects of secrecy on government policy. Reviewing them in their entirety, the ineffaceable impression left is of a President whose recklessness very nearly precipitated a nuclear holocaust.
In April 1961, Kennedy had sponsored an invasion by an assortment of CIA-trained exiles, in an episode which went down in history as the Bay of Pigs. Following the abject failure of this clandestine operation, a humiliated Kennedy authorised a CIA campaign of sabotage and assassinations to ‘visit the terrors of the earth’ on the Castro regime. On the very same day that missile bases were discovered, McNamara met with the Joint Chiefs of Staff to discuss measures for removing Castro, including a possible invasion – though this was to be delayed till after the mid-term elections. Castro’s only hope of securing the fragile gains of the revolution was thus to align himself with the only power which acted as a significant counterweight to the US. Nuclear weapons in Cuba were a way of guaranteeing the revolution against further American attempts at subversion.
Having created the conditions which led to the establishment of missile bases, Kennedy surpassed himself by proceeding to enter into a stand-off with the Soviet Union, in spite of the firmly held belief of EXCOMM that there were no security related grounds for doing so.
Defence Secretary McNamara frequently attracts effusive praise for his adept supervision of the ’quarantine’. Yet the fact a nuclear holocaust was averted owes not to his supervision, but the timely actions of a lone Soviet submariner when a Soviet Commander, disoriented by the dropping of American depth charges, ordered that the nuclear torpedoes be armed. Ultimately, disaster was only narrowly avoided after Second Captain Vasily Arkhipov opposed the order and persuaded Captain Vasitsky to calm down.
In his speech to the nation on the 22nd of October, Kennedy had solemnly intoned about the insufferable threats to national security arising from the advent of nuclear weapons. This stance was disingenuous in the extreme. If the President had actually believed his own words, then he would not have one year previously stationed missiles in Turkey, close to the borders of the Soviet Union. CIA director John McCone had predicted months in advance that the Soviet Union might seek to counterbalance these with missiles of its own in Cuba.__________
Bobby Kennedy was complicit in assassinations and whitewashing of family scandals / criminal activity.
The president's files would reveal that Jack and Bobby Kennedy were more than merely informed about the CIA's assassination plotting against Prime Minister Fidel Castro of Cuba: they were its strongest advocates. The necessity of Castro's death became a presidential obsession after the disastrous failure of the Bay of Pigs invasion in April 1961, and remained an obsession to the end. White House files also dealt with three foreign leaders who were murdered during Kennedy's thousand days in the presidency -- Patrice Lumumba, of the Congo; Rafael Trujillo, of the Dominican Republic; and Ngo Dinh Diem, of South Vietnam. Jack Kennedy knew of and endorsed the CIA's assassination plotting against Lumumba and Trujillo before his inauguration on January 20, 1961.
Giancana and his fellow hoodlums in Chicago, one of the most powerful organized crime operations in the nation, had already been enlisted on behalf of Kennedy in the 1960 presidential campaign against Republican Richard M. Nixon, providing money and union support; mob support would help Kennedy win in Illinois and in at least four other states where the Kennedy plurality was narrow. A few months after the election, allegations of vote fraud in Illinois were reported to Bobby Kennedy's Justice Department -- and met with no response. The 1960 presidential election was stolen.__________
Medgar Evers fought and killed in the European Theater and the Battle of Normandy with the United States Army during a bloody war of attrition fought to enrichen war profiteers (WWII).
Malcolm X was a great man but he wasn't preaching peace (not even when he was preaching Islamic peace):
"Be peaceful, be courteous, obey the law, respect everyone; but if someone puts his hand on you, send him to the cemetery."__________
Martin Luther King was a religious leech preaching from the White Man's Book of Genocide and Slavery (33,000 verses of chaotic conflict, malice, law, punishment and evil used to emotionally condition children for combat).
John Lennon was...peaceful.
1/9 is unacceptable as George Carlin would have known most of the information now accessible in the public domain.
To make a point, he defeated the point.
When this world is ready to forego sociopathic hypocrisy, illogical rationalisation and relativist compromise; the bonds of slavery shall be lifted and the truth (that mutual advantage is the only advantage that is true) shall set us all free. Combat and conflict will persist for as long as humans are compromised by their shrewd rationalisation of malice, deceit and violence as justified "when we do it". Until truth and right from violence be freed, there will only be war and misery in the race towards our Mutually Assured Destruction.
Selfish optimality is 6000 years overdue. We need to do ourselves this favour. We must be truly, cravenly, uncompromisingly Selfish.
