Felix da Housecat vs Martin Luther King

Felix da Housecat vs Martin Luther King

Esta rareza fue publicada en el 2003 por la revista francesa TRAX. Felix da Housecat, bajo el seudónimo de Aphrohead, incluye en ella un fragmento del sobrecogerdor discurso de Martin Luther King pronunciado en Detroit frente a 25.000 personas, el 23 de Junio de 1963. Hoy justamente su cumplen 50 años de ese memorable día: "And I think by following this approach it will also help us to go into the new age that is emerging with the right attitude. For nonviolence not only calls upon its adherents to avoid external physical violence, but it calls upon them to avoid internal violence of spirit. It calls on them to engage in that something called love. And I know it is difficult sometimes. When I say "love" at this point, I-m not talking about an affectionate emotion. (All right) It-s nonsense to urge people, oppressed people, to love their oppressors in an affectionate sense. I-m talking about something much deeper. I-m talking about a sort of understanding, creative, redemptive goodwill for all men. We are coming to see now, the psychiatrists are saying to us, that many of the strange things that happen in the subconscience, many of the inner conflicts, are rooted in hate. And so they are saying, "Love or perish." But Jesus told us this a long time ago. And I can still hear that voice crying through the vista of time, saying, "Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, pray for them that despitefully use you." And there is still a voice saying to every potential Peter, "Put up your sword." History is replete with the bleached bones of nations, history is cluttered with the wreckage of communities that failed to follow this command. And isn-t it marvelous to have a method of struggle where it is possible to stand up against an unjust system, fight it with all of your might, never accept it, and yet not stoop to violence and hatred in the process? This is what we have." Puedes escuchar y leer el resto desde stanford.edu
