What Has Happened to Speeches Like This?

Discussing why GDP does not capture the true value of the wealth and health of the United States is not exactly cocktail party banter, but I found this short video and Robert F. Kennedy's speech extremely moving. Barak Obama knows how to energize and captivate a crowd, but I have yet to hear this kind of classic, beautiful oratory, even from him.

Even if you are not galvanized to follow the congressional hearings about how we should bolster or revive the national economy, I hope you are at least reminded of what truly does have value and what should make us proud. Thanks to Gristmill for digging up this gem. My goose bumps just now disappeared.
