PROBE: The Establishment

J. Pare : L. B. Johnson was a dropout in a sense, but it is difficult to conceive of John Kennedy as a dropout?

M. McLuhan : He really dropped out. You know why: he was killed by the Establishment. He was executed. He was dangerous to them.

J. Pare : Because he did not want to drop out, he wanted to change things like his brother?

M. McLuhan : Yes. These men were executed by the Establishment. And they will be anytime they try anything like that.
