This speech from YouTube is also recently an embedded broadcast on Brasscheck TV for the month of April 2012. I have found myself unable to become weary of listening to any speech by JFK. In this speech Kennedy explains why he welcomes scrutiny of his decisions and engaging in debate about them. He famously praised the ancient Athenian legislator Solon who stated that avoiding controversy should be considered a crime.

In the spirit of JFK and Solon welcoming controversy, whilst, I agree with JFK's abhorrence of 'Communism' as practised in the Soviet Union and the Eastern bloc under Stalin, I would question the way JFK describes popular struggles in the third world at the time as subversion against democracy. Examples include the Vietnamese resistance to brutal French colonial rule and the United States, the Cuban revolution and political struggles in Latin America inspired by the Cuban revolution. As the leaders of those struggles had direct experience of brutal colonial rule and meddling in their political affairs by the likes of he US, they tended to look favorably from a distance on the same word political forces that Kennedy rightly abhorred.

An example was Fidel Castro, who proudly wore the label 'Communist'. JFK had conflict with Castro during his Presidency (although this conflict was moving towards reconciliation at the time of JFK's murder). For all his flaws, Castro, now retired as President of Cuba and now a contributor to Global Research has been clearly a force for immense good in the world, a most striking example being his getting Cuba to successfully handle the sudden drop of oil imports from the USSR in the 1990's and setting an example for the rest of the world to follow.
