- Martin Luther King Jr Plagiarism Story: by Theodore Pappa: “…he further identified that King’s ‘Letter from a Birmingham Jail’; the ‘I Have A Dream Speech’; and his Nobel Prize lecture, also “contained significant portions taken from other sources.” Yet a liberal committee investigating the plagiarism determined in a September 1991 report “because King plagiarized only 45 percent of the first half of his dissertation and only 21 percent of the second, the thesis remains a legitimate and ‘intelligent contribution to scholarship’ about which ‘no thought should be given to the revocation of Dr. King’s doctoral degree'”.(p.103) “
Right now, none of this matters to the public, nor to academia. The chosen saint shall remain on his perch.
(For as long as it’s politically expedient to the two main branches of the Democratic Party, anyways.)
But my question isn’t “is he politically useful?”
My question is, “is he a hero to emulate?”
Only to the extent that he stood for public justice and race-blind liberty, for the rule of law to be applied equally to black as well as white.
Beyond that? Nope.
There is a common belief today that men’s private sins should not be considered in our assessment of their public lives. This public philosophy can be summarized as follows: “Cigars shared between consenting adults don’t count.” It is always applied by liberals to liberals. Sometimes it applies to conservatives, unless the sins involve money, especially Political Action Committee money taken from business. But money taken by the Democratic National Committee from agents of Communist China is like Martin Luther King, Jr.’s plagiarism: irrelevant.
There is a now-discarded phrase: “If a man will cheat on his wife, he will cheat on anyone.” That is my view. That is the way I vote, when I vote.
King was right about Rosa Parks. He was right about non-violence. But what he did to other men’s wives, and to his own wife, was unconscionable. Also unconscionable was his career-long theft of the words that he stole for public use. But the liberals who dismiss all of this are worse, for they seek to make intellectual theft and adultery seem irrelevant. They prefer to undermine the ethics of civilization for the sake of politics and race.How Martin Luther King, Jr. Got Away With Plagiarism: Different Strokes for Different Folks. by Gary North
The liberals are happy to make intellectual theft and adultery – and homosexuality and abortion, and murder and mandatory lying – all irrelevant, as they hate the Law of God.
Conservatives don’t much care about the Law either, as seen from the days of the slave-owners to the lynchers to today’s warmongers.
And both love their thieving welfare state, with the only real question being who get to the government feeding trough first and most: academia and their social dominance projects, the corporate leaders, or the military.
And when the money is gone?
*Poof* goes the now-worthless State, the idol of our time.
Do remember that dishonesty and cowardice always have to be paid for. Don’t imagine that for years on end you can make yourself the boot-licking propagandist of the Soviet regime, or any other regime, and then suddenly return to mental decency. Once a whore, always a whore.”– George Orwell
Christians would be wise to avoid whoring themselves for power, and to disdain and loathe both the Right-wing Darwinian Enlightenment:
Service to the State! Glory to the Race!
and the Left-wing Marxist Enlightenment:
Service to the State! Power to the Party!
We have a God to serve, and His Law-Order to uphold.
As such, we will need to be good kings and priests – as defined by God, but also as recognized by the common man – and not bad ones.
And we will have to start small, in our communities and churches, our families and businesses, our neighbourhoods and social circles.
It will be tough sledding for quite a while… but, as the incoherence, the sterility, the incompetence, and the financial and moral bankruptcy of The Establishment rots their instruments of power and undermines their legitimacy, it will get easier over time.
