Martin Luther King gave this speech on 3 April 1968 at the Church of God in Christ, in Memphis, Tennessee. The last part of this speech in particular seems eerily prophetic.
He was assassinated the next day on 4 April 1968.
"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonour others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of slights. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they cease; where there are tongues, they are stilled; and where there is learning, it passes away." 1 Cor 13:4-10
The Banks must be restrained, and the financial system reformed, with balance restored to the economy, before there can be any sustainable recovery."There is a vision to remake the world's economy according to the neo-liberal agenda, and to rule it with an 'iron rod' wielded by the US. It would be under the control, described as benevolent guidance, of an oligarchy of the self-proclaimed wisest and most powerful of the multinational elite. The key goal now is to subdue any effective competition, and to gain the full cooperation of the other major powers. They are testing their model of a confederation of nations under central control in Europe."
