''During the Kennedy Administration there was an unmistakable
reconsideration of the relationship between the permanent wartime
economy with the broader national and international political economy.
This was evident not only in JFK’s move to scale back US involvement in
Vietnam, evident in National Security Action Memorandum 263,
but also in his attempt to dismantle the Central Intelligence Agency,
and challenge the power of the Federal Reserve Bank by issuing genuine
silver-backed currency. In very short order such actions were overturned
by Lyndon Johnson and the US was plunged into a murderous and costly
war. With Kennedy’s passing the world’s inhabitants may have lost any
serious prospect of world peace.''
