King also said this:
"“We must rapidly begin the shift from a ‘thing-oriented’ society to a ‘person-oriented’ society. When machines and computers, profit motives and property rights are considered more important than people, the giant triplets of racism, materialism and militarism are incapable of being conquered.”

Some people (a fair number) believe that King planned to address the issue of income inequality in the US as a class issue, that quote suggests he was moving that way.

Too bad he was assassinated before he might've had an effect on the move towards using gov't to increase income inequality, consumer & worker/employee rights that started with Rocket Ronnie's administration. He might've been able to marshal others to change the direction of US politics.

Correction, increase income inequality and decrease consumer & worker/employee rights . . .

Hi azure,

Thanks for writing a comment about what Martin Luther King Jr. said about income inequality and materialism.

One year on the King holiday, I wrote about his views on income inequality. https://boomersurvive-thriveguide.typepad.com/the_survive_and_thrive_bo/2011/01/on-martin-luther-king-day-lets-make-a-commitment-to-eliminate-poverty.html
