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.
For example, the picture above is the best evidence that John F. Kennedy and Marilyn Monroe did not have a sexual relationship.
As a matter of fact, this brief encounter clearly illustrates the stark contrast between fleeting appearnance and absolute truth.
The stark reality is that JFK and Marilyn Monroe never had an affair because, beyond that brief encounter, their busy schedules never overlaped to allow the opportunity that everybody has imagined, and that's the simple truth.
Indeed, the only one who is in a festive mood in the picture above is Arthur Schlesinger Jr., in the far right with a drink in his left hand, and his right hand, which is cropped, is holding a cigar he happily puffed on while Marilyn Monroe and the Kennedys engaged the serious issues that Schlesinger wrote about.
If you really want to understand Marilyn Monroe, read this, do no not manufacture delusions about her life and her mysterious death. If you have bought all the gossip, hook, line and sinker, discard it. What you think you know is not necessarily true no matter how many people agree with you and if you really want to know who Marilyn Monroe had sex with on a rather regular basis, this will set the record straight.
Marilyn Monroe was politically more Liberal than JFK was and she was not about to waste her one opportunity to engage the most powerful man in the world, by flirting with him. 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."
Marilyn Monroe's words speak volumes, and she sounds exactly like one of us, when she 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."
Now you know.
