    After spending years spying upon and attempting to disrupt the life of civil rights legend Martin Luther King, Jr., files released late last week reveal that the FBI apparently instituted similar practices against his wife Coretta Scott King shortly after King was assassinated in 1968.

    FBI's spying on Coretta King (who died in January 2006) included secretly listening in on telephone calls, following her travels and opening her mail.

    One of the released files reveals an FBI agent accusing Mrs. King of having a public persona of being "selfless, magnanimous and decorous" but was actually engaged in "shrewd, calculating, businesslike activities."

    Yeah. Just goes to show you that this new generation know so little about the truth. It also reminds people like how fast we are heading out without proerly preparing our children for the Struggle ahead.

    If you think the government's abuse of us in the 1960's was bad, wait until you see what the Bush Gang has prepared for us under "homeland security" and the "patriot act". This is history doing more than just repeating itself. This is history gone plumb crazy because we do know pay attention. Karl Marx said that when history repaets itself once, it is a tragedy. When history repeats itself the second time, it is a farce. We could say that what they did to Dr. King was the second time. The first time was probably when did it to Provisional President Marcus Garvey.

    As we begin to move this Struggle to the next level by finally developing and implenmenting an economic theory and program, we must always be conscious of what the government might do if we keep repeating the same old mistakes. Nothing frighten the system more than Garvey's economic program. Get ready for Struggle.
