Kerry warns students: "Donít get bought out by the vast sums of money in American politics. Fight that and give peopleís voices back to people." Earlier this year, Secretary of State John Kerry gave some warnings to an auditorium full of university students which never got much attention. It appears the Skull & Bonesman may have been feeling twinges of a guilty conscience, perhaps even subconsciously. While cloaking some of his remarks towards criticism of corrupt foreign regimes, Kerry did warn specifically about corruption in American politics as well.

"So we have kleptocrats all around the world, stealing from the people theyíre supposed to represent," Kerry said.

During the Q&A, one student asked Kerry "Do you think that there is an attitude of fear that is built up in America through McCarthyism and the Red Scare and on now into the war on terror? Iím not saying I have a say in this, but are we afraid of something? What is it?"

Kerry replied "I donít think Americans are fearful. I donít think Americans fear very much at all. I think Ė and I think Americans are concerned and I think theyíre concerned about the future because they see gridlock and Americans see a stagnation in the rate of wage increase, and Americans see challenges in terms of life, everyday life Ė paying for education, getting your kids the opportunities they want, and so forth. But weíre a very optimistic people by and large. And what Americans are frustrated about, I sense, is a feeling that decisions arenít being made that are advancing that sense of optimism and the direction that they want it to go. So thereís a frustration built up on every side politically. This is not reserved to one side or the other of the political spectrum. And I think a lot of you Ė if I took a real poll here, youíd probably say youíre pretty agnostic about which party or where you want to be, how you affiliate, because that process is losing some people to our system, losing some talent and some capacity.

When asked by the student "How do we fix it?" Kerry replied "All of you get involved. Thatís how you fix it. Iím serious. Demand accountability. Get involved in the political system. If you donít think somebody else is making good choices, go tell people what the better choices are and show them how you can follow through on them. And donít get bought out by the vast sums of money in American politics. Fight that and give peopleís voices back to people. Thatís how you do it."


When speaking to the students about how foreign policy affects life here at home, Kerry brought up various turmoils and repeatedly mentioned "klepocrats:"

"...Because foreign policy is not just about what happens over there; itís about what happens over here as a result of what happens over there. Itís about the security and peace that we can bring to American stability that comes through our relationships... So this means jobs here at home. Itís real, and particularly in a globalized world Ė I see a lot of smartphones sticking up, looking at me here Ė thatís the connections we have today, instantaneous to everywhere in the world. Thatís the power of today. Thatís whatís happening everywhere. Thatís why thereís so much turmoil and energy at the same time. You have these failed states where you have these greedy people who Ė for whom it is not enough simply to have some power and be able to do good for people, but who want to get rich while theyíre doing it at the expense of the people theyíre supposed to serve.

So we have kleptocrats all around the world, stealing from the people theyíre supposed to represent, and levels of corruption that are absolutely extraordinary in various places. And the result is people feel that. You have these failed states where you have these greedy people who Ė for whom it is not enough simply to have some power and be able to do good for people, but who want to get rich while theyíre doing it at the expense of the people theyíre supposed to serve... Thatís a tension; itís huge in the social fabric and social structure of a place."

"And thatís whatís going on in a lot of places. Itís a clash of aspirations and opportunity and modernity and culture all at the same time, and itís Ė it creates a huge tension. And as a result of these kleptocrats and so forth, you wind up having failed and failing states in too many places, so governance becomes a problem. And then when you have instability you have extremes that rush in to fill the vacuum. And those extremes are dangerous nowadays. In many cases, theyíre willing to blow people up Ė they donít have a plan for healthcare, they donít have a plan for education, they donít offer you anything other than you have to live the way I want you to. And if you donít, youíre the enemy. And particularly those of us who offer real freedom and real opportunity and self-determination and a whole bunch of other things Ė really scary to some of them. So we live in interesting times."

  • QUESTION: Okay. Iíll go with fear then. It seems to me Ė you mentioned the tension, and Iíve thought about that previously. It seems like in my generation a lot Ė and so Iím wondering, do you think that there is an attitude of fear that is built up in America through McCarthyism and the Red Scare and on now into the war on terror? Iím not saying I have a say in this, but are we afraid of something? What is it? How does this affect us, and how does this relate to gridlock and the way my generation is going to react to American democracy and politics going forward?

    SECRETARY KERRY: Well, youíre kind of dragging me out of my role as Secretary of State back into my previous hat --

    QUESTION: Yes, sir.

    SECRETARY KERRY: -- which I try to stay away from.

    QUESTION: Sorry about that. (Laughter.)

    SECRETARY KERRY: But without, hopefully, getting in trouble, Iíll share a couple of thoughts with you. I donít think Americans are fearful. I donít think Americans fear very much at all. I think Ė and I think Americans are concerned and I think theyíre concerned about the future because they see gridlock and Americans see a stagnation in the rate of wage increase, and Americans see challenges in terms of life, everyday life Ė paying for education, getting your kids the opportunities they want, and so forth.

    But weíre a very optimistic people by and large. I mean, I think America is amazing for that. Itís part of our spirit. De Tocqueville noticed that about Americans when he came over here and visited in the 1700s. It was Ė he noticed our charitable giving, I guess it was the early 1800s. And he wrote about it in terms of America, and what really distinguished America was the way in which Americans would do Ė would get involved in charitable efforts and be involved with their neighbors and give to other people. We have a huge spirit for doing that in the United States, and it is quite special. And I think that there is a confidence in America.

    And what Americans are frustrated about, I sense, is a feeling that decisions arenít being made that are advancing that sense of optimism and the direction that they want it to go. So thereís a frustration built up on every side politically. This is not reserved to one side or the other of the political spectrum. And I think a lot of you Ė if I took a real poll here, youíd probably say youíre pretty agnostic about which party or where you want to be, how you affiliate, because that process is losing some people to our system, losing some talent and some capacity.

    So Ė but I donít think itís fear. I really donít put it in the category of fear. I think itís frustration, and I think itís a little bit of anxiety about where are we going with all of this kind of turmoil in the world and how is it going to affect us, which forces people to look inwards a little bit.


    QUESTION: How do we fix it?

    SECRETARY KERRY: Beg your pardon?

    QUESTION: How do we fix it?

    SECRETARY KERRY: All of you get involved. Thatís how you fix it. Iím serious. Demand accountability. Get involved in the political system. If you donít think somebody else is making good choices, go tell people what the better choices are and show them how you can follow through on them. And donít get bought out by the vast sums of money in American politics. Fight that and give peopleís voices back to people. Thatís how you do it.

    Remarks

    Secretary of State
    Dean Acheson Auditorium
    Washington, DC
    March 18, 2014


    But what weíre excited about that I want to tell you about today, which weíre going to unveil today, is a new interactive presentation by the Department called Department of State by State. What weíre going to do Ė and this is why I went to UVA, incidentally, to give my first speech of the tenure as Secretary of State, was because foreign policy is not just about what happens over there; itís about what happens over here as a result of what happens over there. Itís about the security and peace that we can bring to American stability that comes through our relationships, through NATO or through ASEAN or these various associations where we work at the rule of law and at the international structure. Itís about a New Jersey company that gets a $144 million contract to build bridges in another country, which means jobs here at home. Itís about another company that is laying fiber between Samoa and the rest of the world so they can be connected, and thatís a $500 million contract. Thatís jobs here at home. And we will show you, state for state Ė you can just come online and touch a state and go on, go to a district, and youíll find out whatís coming to that district or that state as a result of our efforts to help marry a contract or an economic opportunity with the capacities we have in various parts of our country

    So this means jobs here at home. Itís real, and particularly in a globalized world Ė I see a lot of smartphones sticking up, looking at me here Ė thatís the connections we have today, instantaneous to everywhere in the world. What happened in Tahrir Square in Egypt was young people texting each other and being in touch and bringing together this group of people who threw out a leader whoíd been there for 30 years.

    Same thing in Tunisia, only it was a little different. Young Ė a fruit vendor who was tired and frustrated about being slapped around and beaten by the police, who wanted simply to sell his goods out of his little fruit vendor stand and he couldnít do it because some officer was harassing him. So he went down and self-immolated in front of the police station in protest. And that ignited the protest that threw out another guy, a dictator whoíd been there for another 30 years, and he was gone within days.

    Thatís the power of today. Thatís whatís happening everywhere. Thatís why thereís so much turmoil and energy at the same time. You have these failed states where you have these greedy people who Ė for whom it is not enough simply to have some power and be able to do good for people, but who want to get rich while theyíre doing it at the expense of the people theyíre supposed to serve.


    So we have kleptocrats all around the world, stealing from the people theyíre supposed to represent, and levels of corruption that are absolutely extraordinary in various places. And the result is people feel that. And if youíre young, and 65 percent of much of the Middle East is under the age of 30 Ė 65 percent. I was talking to one of my staff the other day who told me Ė I donít remember the country Ė I should, and I apologize Ė but it was a country where the median age is 15 years old. And there are a bunch of countries like that, frankly. And if youíre 50 percent under the age of 21 and 40 percent under the age of 18 and you donít have a chance to go to school, and you donít have a chance to get a job even though you may have been educated, you went to Ė go to like the University of Cairo or American University in Cairo or one of the other universities, and youíre ready to go, and you canít do it. Thatís a tension; itís huge in the social fabric and social structure of a place.

    And thatís whatís going on in a lot of places. Itís a clash of aspirations and opportunity and modernity and culture all at the same time, and itís Ė it creates a huge tension. And as a result of these kleptocrats and so forth, you wind up having failed and failing states in too many places, so governance becomes a problem. And then when you have instability you have extremes that rush in to fill the vacuum. And those extremes are dangerous nowadays. In many cases, theyíre willing to blow people up Ė they donít have a plan for healthcare, they donít have a plan for education, they donít offer you anything other than you have to live the way I want you to. And if you donít, youíre the enemy. And particularly those of us who offer real freedom and real opportunity and self-determination and a whole bunch of other things Ė really scary to some of them.

    So we live in interesting times.
