Robert Welch on the Future, March 9, 1974
Nancy Razik forwarded this Youtube video of Robert Welch, founder of the John Birch Society, in 1974. Welch died in 1985 and so did not live to see the big government Republicans co opt the Reagan revolution which he helped engineer. Welch makes more sense than the majority of university professors. However, I disagree with his emphasis on conspiracy. The ideology of "progressivism" does not require a conspiracy; and Wall Street bankers and others with an economic interest in big government and socialism do not need to conspire to recognize that the economic interests of America's elite depends on squelching free enterprise in the interest of high taxes, big business and of course monetary inflation, the mainstay of America's commercial banks and Wall Street. The video is well worth watching. Welch makes more sense than any television announcer and most of the academics alive today.
