A very important message from Robert F. Kennedy about the lack of credibility of Gross Domestic Product. His words ring true even today, not just for the state of America, but any country measuring its achievements in society’s material aspects, rather than those which make a nation great.
Here is a clip from a television show that RFK gave an interview on. The clip is not complete. In the beginning there is again humorous side of Bobby to be seen and then he answers some of the most important questions.
The best point he makes, which will always hold true, is that young people believing themselves unable to make any change, whilst they can.
This video made by one of the fans of RFK’s leadership is really captivating. It is short and sweet, filled with the love that RFK had for his brother. The words of Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet that he spoke for him applies to RFK himself too.
Here is the only moment that he truly smiled on this occasion at the Democratic National Convention in Atlanta in 1964 on August 25 while presenting a film dedicated to his assassinated brother. The crowd gave Robert F. Kennedy a standing ovation that ran over 22 minutes. He was touched and felt the warmth that people hold for his brother, President John F. Kennedy.
