11/22/63 & Big Crime Think

steal a little and they put you in jail
steal a lot and they make you king.
-- Bob Dylan

Today is the 42nd anniversary of the Kennedy assassination. How would history have been different if the press had investigated this story rather than serving as conduits for government lies?

Usually this question is answered by asking whether or not Kennedy would indeed, as Oliver Stone's film "JFK' argues, have disengaged from Viet Nam. I want to pose a different question here. Did 11/22/63 start a tradition in America of BIG CRIME THINK?

Where did THEY get the idea that they could kill the President of the United States in a public square in broad daylight and neither the press nor any federal government agency would, for decades, seriously investigate? Is there a modern precedent for this that I'm missing? OR were the JFK plotters the pioneers of Big Crime Think?

Would the Reagan campaign team have believed that they could get away with making a secret deal with the Iranians to keep their American hostages until after the election if the JFK assassination had been seriously investigated?

Where did Team Bush get the idea... well.. you get the idea.

** How do we stop Big Crime Think? **

The best book I've read that touches on the issue of the forces swirling in the background of American history that might pass on the doctrine of Big Crime Think is Peter Dale Scott's "Deep Politics and the Death of JFK"

-- well, I'm not sure I understand this forum and perhaps this would be better posted elsewhere. But I can't seem to kill this post now so I will post the rest of what I decided to post here in General Discussions. My apologies if this isn't the right kind of post for the research forum
