Ronald Reagan was a great speaker and a powerful leader. When he gave this speech decades ago, he had no idea how relevant it would still be today.
Reagan and Appeasement
What amazing speeches Ronald Reagan gave nearly half a century ago! Thank you to Mathew Worth from Canada for creating yet another inspiring video.
Have things even changed today? Reagan’s speech sounds like it could have been said right now. He declares in this speech that “…this is the specter our well-meaning liberal friends refuse to face—that their policy of accommodation is appeasement, and it gives no choice between peace and war, only between fight or surrender. If we continue to accommodate, continue to back and retreat, eventually we have to face the final demand—the ultimatum.”
How relevant this still is today! If only the people of Israel really understood this, there would be no question of what Israel needs to do in order to ensure its survival.
There was a time when people understood the clear and obvious, and common sense was still prevalent. We have lost it all in post-modernism, and people today can’t really understand. They don’t completely relate to these eternal words, and that is one of the biggest problems facing our world.
