Martin Luther King’s Words Important Today

I am convinced that if we are to get on the right side of the world revolution, we as a nation must undergo a radical revolution of values. We must rapidly begin to shift from a thing-oriented society to a person-oriented society. When machines and computers, profit motives, and property rights are considered more important than people, the giant triplets of racism, extreme materialism, and militarism are incapable of being conquered.

            Martin Luther King, Jr. speaking at Riverside Church in NYC. April 4, 1967.

Wonderful diagnosis of the problem but the need for this revolution is even more pressing today.
