To eradicate ignorance, you must generate the wisdom to contradict it.
You cannot know the truth until the toxins that cloud your vision are eliminated. Trust in your own intelligence, not in the gossip that is spread from one end of the world to the other, because the media is in a position to control what we hear.
Fore example, the picture above is the best evidence that John F. Kennedy and Marilyn Monroe NEVER had an affair.
As a matter of fact, this brief encounter or the "backstage appearance" of Marilyn Monroe's "Happy Birthday Mr. President" performance, illustrates the stark contrast between fleeting appearnance and absolute truth.
The stark reality is that JFK and Marilyn Monroe never had an affair because this, and this alone, is the only time that their schedules overlaped, to allow them to be together.
Moreover, note the fact that the only one who appears to be in a festive mood in the picture above is Arthur Schlesinger Jr., in the far right with drink in left hand, his right hand, which is cropped, is holding a cigar he happily puffed on while Marilyn Monroe tried to impress Kennedy with her "underestimated" knowledge about politics.
What people do not realize about Marilyn Monroe is that politically, she was more Liberal than JFK was, and in the last interview prior to her death, she implored a reporter to take her seriously in the following terms: "What I really want to say: That what the world really needs is a real feeling of kinship. Everybody: stars, labourers, Negroes, Jews, Arabs. We are all brothers. Please don't make me a joke. End the interview with what I believe."
Needless to say, having landed the ear of the President of the United States, she was itching to give him a taste of her mind because she was seething to get her point across ever since Kennedy defeated Nixon. In her very own words, Marilyn Monroe had said, "some of those bastards in Hollywood wanted me to drop Arthur. Said it would ruin my career. They're born cowards and want you to be like them. One reason I want to see Kennedy win is that Nixon's assocoiated with that whole scene," and that was evidently the nature of the fighting words that made the President bow his head in rather serious contemplation.
And so, those of you who have bought it, hook, line and sinker, that Monroe and the Kennedys were sleeping together, this should clearly convince you that Joe Dimaggio was her one and only love !
Compared to all the gossip, rumor and innuendo, the truth is really quite wonderful and fasinating, and you wonder why you haven't heard it before?
Certainly hope these links explain everything...
