It will, in addition, encourage the initiative & risk-taking on which our free system depends: induce more investment, production & capacity use; help provide the 2 million new jobs we need every year, & reinforce the American principle of additional reward for additional effort. 08:41:40 LS from rear of Congress. MCU of people watching from gallery. 08:41:50 CU JFK at mic SOF: What comfort can we take from the increasing strains & tensions within the Communist bloc? Here hope must be tempered w/ caution. For the Soviet-Chinese disagreement is over means, not ends. A dispute over how best to bury the West is no grounds for Western rejoicing. Nevertheless, while a strain is not a fracture, it is clear that the forces of diversity are at work inside the Communist camp, despite all the iron disciplines of regimentation & all the iron dogmatism's of ideology, Marx is proven wrong once again. For it is the closed Communist societies, not the free and open societies, which carry within themselves the seeds of internal disintegration. 08:42:40 LS from rear. 08:42:44 We are not lulled by the momentary calm of the sea or the somewhat clearer skies above. We know the turbulence that lies below, & the storms that are beyond the horizon this year. But now the winds of change appear to be blowing more strongly than ever, in the world of communism as well as our own. For 175 years we have sailed w/ those winds at our back, & w/ the tides of human freedom in our favor. We steer our ship w/ hope, as Thomas Jefferson said, "leaving Fear astern." 08:43:24 Applause.
