beloved freedom fighters Paper instructions: John F. Kennedy (1917-1963), Martin Luther King, Jr. (1929-1968), and Robert F. Kennedy (1925-1968) were beloved freedom fighters, who tried to do the right thing in America and were assassinated almost simultaneously. No matter who killed them, they were proponents of change and martyrs for justice, but what if they had lived? How would the U.S. and the world have been different now if JFK had withdrawn from Vietnam, ended the Cold War (1945-1991), advocated world peace, and prevented the permanent militarization of America during his presidency? What would he have done with the military-industrial complex and the CIA, which ended up assisting would-be terrorists during the Cold War? How much of his vision of the global struggle for freedom in his Inaugural Address would have been promoted under his leadership? MLK wanted not only to end segregation in the South but also to gain economic justice for the urban poor in Northern slums and ghettoes. Right before his assassination, he was planning the Poor People’s March in Washington, D.C. to demand increased anti-poverty effort. He also said: “Of all the forms of inequality, injustice in healthcare is the most shocking and inhumane.” How do you think he would have continued to grapple with such issues as poverty and health in America? Working closely with JFK and MLK, RFK was also attentive and responsive to America’s despairs and dreams. If the loss of these lives has been immense, how do you think we can make up for it in the 21st century? If necessary, comment on the War on Terror, healthcare, income inequality, and the U.S. government national debt.
