JFK and the Unspeakable

JFK and the Unspeakable: Why He Died and Why It Matters (Hardcover) by James W. Douglass


“For forty years Jim Douglass has been our leading North American Catholic theologian of peace. But this monumental work on the witness of JFK is something deeper still. Douglass is trying to get us to connect the dots between our ‘citizen denial,’ the government’s ‘plausible deniability,’ and the Unspeakable. This book has the potential to change our narrative about our country, and our lives as citizens and disciples. May we have ears to hear these truths, hearts able to bear their burden, and hands willing to build a new story.”

—Ched Myers, author, Binding the Strong Man: A Political Reading of Mark’s Story of Jesus

Are the years of turmoil that followed the assassination of JFK due to not just the killing of a President, but of a man who had turned from cold warrior to a visionary of peace?

Was JFK killed because he had evolved into a threat to the war machine upon which the American economy and powers that be so rely on for wealth and the continuance of world dominance?

You can debate Douglass's specific prism into the events -- the JFK assassination will forever be subject to speculation -- but you can't argue with the reality that the shooting death of Kennedy put a hole right through the heart of our hope for a nation and world turned toward peace.

We have been devastated ever since.

~There is no God and we are his prophets.~

-Cormac McCarthy-

Man is superior to the stars if he lives in the power of superior wisdom. Such a person being the master over heaven and earth by means of his will is a magus and magic is not sorcery but supreme wisdom



'The nationalist not only does not disapprove of atrocities committed by his own side, but he has a remarkable capacity for not even hearing about them'.....'Every war when it comes, or before it comes, is represented not as a war but as an act of self-defense against a homicidal maniac.'.....'In times of universal deceit, telling the truth will be a revolutionary act.'.....'War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength.' George Orwell
