Trying To Bring Back Camelot?

RFK Jr. has something to say. Since he is an important person, we must all listen.

DALLAS – Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is convinced that a lone gunman wasn’t solely responsible for the assassination of his uncle, President John F. Kennedy, and said his father believed the Warren Commission report was a “shoddy piece of craftsmanship.”

Who wants to believe that some lone nut would shoot the President of the US? A lone nut who did not like the man. It’s much less glamorous than a Mafia related murder, or better yet, some quasi government hit job.

As painful as it was for the time, the Kennedy family as well as many die hard conspiracy theorist needs to accept that a lone gunman, a nut, shot JFK. The age of Camelot ended over something stupid and petty to most Americans but not to Lee Harvey Oswald. He was a bad apple for sure.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. said his father spent a year trying to come to grips with his brother’s death, reading the work of Greek philosophers, Catholic scholars, Henry David Thoreau, poets and others “trying to figure out kind of the existential implications of why a just God would allow injustice to happen of the magnitude he was seeing.”

I’m sure this is true. After all, RFK Jr was in a good position to know. He was 11 years old at the time and was able to understand such deep lines of thought from his father. Many people say that it was RFK’s heavy handed dealings with the Mafia that cost his brother his life. That could be partially true but who cares at this point? We can’t change history.

Wise people know that everything happens for a reason. That is the way of things. Adding 2cents into the long ended debate, 50 years later, does not help relight the fire of Camelot. All the players of the time are dead. Let’s let them rest in peace.

I’ve been reading an excellent novel: The Good Father. The protagonist just cannot accept that his son was an assassin. If you like novels, I recommend this book. It’s well written and portrays how hard it is for the families of violent crime — both victims and perpetrators — struggle with having to deal with evil.
