A Public Service Message from the American Income Life Insurance Co.Waco, TexasBernard Rapoport, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer The Fight Continues American Income Life Insurance Company wishes to share with Observer readers this letter from George McAlmon to Bernard Rapoport, which is printed with the writer’s permission. Dear Bernard, Four more years of encroachment by the financialpolitical cadre, given the current attitudes of people, will cause more than a surge of nouveaux pativres attitudes indifferent to other’s grief or well conditioned by official lies and concealment. Constitutional rights and liberties will be lost. We should be prepared. The pendulum swings to one side and then back to the other. Sometimes, if it swings too far, the apparatus fails and the pendulum doesn’t return. This may have happened. Democracy, as the founders of our country knew, will not survive when a few gain inordinate power. Excessive control has now moved to the very rich who of course also direct the public corporations and banks. Workers have been terrorized by unemployment. The decent politicians are intimidated. The media, especially TV, sedate and regularly support the ongoing rape of American workers’ families and democratic movements abroad. Social liberty survives on tolerance and compromise. The studied design to divide people by promoting specific positions of religious or emotional intransigence is utterly evil a campaign planned to irrationalize the public, our friends and neighbors. Where are the patriots who cherish freedom and reason as well as office? Another term will complete the occupation of the Supreme Court, Courts of Appeal, and all federal social control agencies, including the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, Federal Communications Commission, Corporation for Public Broadcasting, Commission on Civil Rights, and National Labor Relations Board. Expect increased violation of human and civil rights by the F.B.I. and C.I.A. Expect some of us to be black-listed, fired and jailed. Management of news and official appearances with public molding in the habit and fashion of national conformity has been partially achieved. There will be less subtle restraints on the media. Advertisers \(cadre anesthetized public, after indoctrination by an obedient media, can itself turn on any medium to enforce conformity. Justices will accelerate the erosion of the Bill of Rights. Be ready. We are headed into a TV and computer age with harassment and isolation of dissenters an age of electronically prodded obedience. Any organized opposition, including labor unions, protest movements and their leaders, is an inevitable target. Within four years the cadre may have consolidated enough control through the production and staging of information, when combined with the power of the executive departments and its evident will, to perpetuate its dominion. The democratic game may be over all the chips will have been won. There is around a touch of the maquis mood. Now that covers most of the recent good news, and in another letter sometime we’ll tell the bad news. I guess we’re just depressed, but I feel better just mentioning the risks. Do we give up? No way let’s stay together, back-to-back and just fight better. QUE SIGA LA LUCHA. With our best wishes always, George McAlmon American Income Life Insurance Company EXECUTIVE OFFICES: P.O.
