Upon scratching deeper into my search for truth, I’ve discovered many things about many people. Including Walter Cronkite with whom I placed on a pedestal in a previous post. Let me explain-I felt in comparison to the newscasters today he was far superior. Did I ever take a kick in the teeth with reading some snippets of his book, A Reporter’s Life.
I quote, “A system of world order—preferably a system of a world government—is mandatory. Ouch!
Upon accepting the 1999 Norman Cousins Global Governance Award at the United Nations he is quoted as saying, it seems to many of us if we are to avoid the eventual catastrophic world conflict we must strengthen the United Nations as a first step towards a world government.
I had a fellow blogger tell me to research everybody! I felt I had adequately researched for my post but I was wrong. Now I know what she meant. I knew about many individuals quest for more power. But he is one that really shocked me to hear he was a propagandist. We live we learn. We research we learn.
I no longer miss Walter. I miss my ignorance. And that’s the way it is.
