Blast from the Past. Had America only followed Benson’s advice
The following speech was originally given on Feb. 11th 1966 at the Utah Forum for the American Idea by Ezra Taft Benson, the 13th President of the Mormon Church, and the 15th Sec. of Agriculture under Pres. Eisenhower. I had never heard the speech until someone pointed it out to me in the comments section of my 4th of July video. It’s a great speech, so I wanted to post this later rendition on my channel so that more people would listen and learn from it. His warnings were particularly prescient, and even more important now than they were over 50 years ago when the speech was first given. It’s too bad Benson’s warnings were not headed sooner. Let’s hope its not too late to stop his worst fears from coming true.
