Six Speeches on the Subject of NAWAPA & National Resources
To better understand the significance of NAWAPA 1964, LaRouchePAC presents to you The Memory of JFK, by means of six speeches on the subject of national resources. In this period of national amnesia, and on the eve of general war to which our nation is being dragged by this same amnesia, remember our last expression of national pride, John F. Kennedy; remember through these films a legacy which is your own, even if you are unaware of that fact.
In this video from the National Archives, President Kennedy continues to emphasize the economic principles of constantly acting toward the next higher step of growth, in order to move ahead in the present.
And now, the Memory of JFK, starting with three speeches from his 1962 trip to the Western United States.
‘A Platform for a New Presidency: The Full Recovery Program for the United States’
“Man’s dependency on an adequate supply of fresh water is an indisputable fact. It is equally a fact that there is an insufficiency of such water and that this insufficiency has been particularly felt in the Western United States. Many efforts have been and are continuing to be made to solve the problem of limited water supply, and although great strides have been achieved, so great is the problem and so important its solution that it now has become imperative that consideration be given to what at one time seemed unachievable proposals. The time has passed during which this problem can be solved through traditionally local or piece-meal approaches. The solution must be equal in magnitude to the problem.”
