A because i Are conducting a War against people in Eastern a whom those in control our news and information b communists the word is become one with which frighten children in this in try. Are the russians com units Are the chinese a la miniets or is it just the it Cong who Are com units we seemed to have me to some sort of rap pachment with the russians id chinese. But the Viet my Are so stubborn. They it not talk and they wont give i the prisoners of War. We have talked so much it getting Back those same isomers that i strongly sped that the Viet Cong by w know their value. Of i have no doubt that we will get them Back and in reasonably Good health. They Are too valuable to the Viet Cong to let them sicken and die. I guess their terms Are too High for us to meet but we will and then the War in Southeast Asia will be Over and maybe we will have Learned a lesson the hard Way. Ethel Merman Sang it in a musical years ago a you can to get a Man with a or a bomb i suppose. We should take note and so should the Ira operating in Northern Ireland. To get Back to who and what Are the communists i believe Jesus was a communist. After All he preached the brotherhood of Man and How it should be All for one and one for All. Communism really could be called the Ideal human state. I believe thin old world is far too wicked for successful communism. Also the russians t h e chinese and the Viet Cong miss these ideals by country Miles. Sarasota journal regular feature historically speaking an Experiment in pure communism was conducted right Here in this country during the Early part of the last Century. It was known As the Oneida Colony and it originally was a society of perfectionists of Bible communists founded by John Humphrey Noyes who came to new York state from by Attleborough it. He commenced life As a lawyer and later studied theology at Yale and ultimately was ordained As a congregational Clergyman. However he soon lost hit License to Pica Cli because of the strange new views that he adapted. So he founded a Community of people whom he indoctrinated to his Way of thinking and for awhile they flourished exceedingly because they had not Only a new life method but also they had several Mills going one of which manufactured the finest animal traps in the country at a time when a Good tap was very important. They also manufactured a line of silverware which its known and appreciated to this Verv Day Oneida. The Cardinal principles of this Community which was located on Oneida Creek in Madison county n. Y., were four in number reconciliation to god salvation from sin recognition of the brotherhood and Equality of men and women and the Community of labor and its fruits. The last named principle embraced a scheme by which All male and female members of the Community were held in a sense to be married to each other. Each Man was married to All the women and each woman was married to All the men. A male could have a relationship with a female but if the result meant the bearing of a child the suitability of such a Union had to be approved by thee Ders. I believe this was meant As an improvement Eugeni Cally but to the outside world it led to a charge by outsiders who were jealous of the Prosperity of this thriving Community As a hotbed of a free this system As regulated by the principles of sympathy and controlled by free Public opinion which constituted the supreme government of the society was far from the reproach of immorality in any sense of the word. The Community rejected All rules of conduct except those which each believer formulated for himself subject to the free criticism of his neighbors. You know if these principles had been More adhered to we might be in better shape than we Are today. After a those Early americans were trying in their own Way to produce a better Breed of human beings for the future and i be Rev that they would have succeeded if it had not for victorian morality which really put an end to their Experiment. Of it had not been for this we might not have so Many Loose nuts lying around. I have heard that descendants of those Pioneer people were taller stronger handsomer and had More brains than their immediate neighbors.
