And it’s much easier to integrate a lunch counter than it is to guarantee a livable income and a good solid job. It’s much easier to guarantee the right to vote than it is to guarantee the right to live in sanitary, decent housing conditions.

A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual death.
